The Public Accounts Committee will call on RTÉ to publish in its annual report the exact amounts paid to members of staff who receive lump sums of more than €150,000 upon their departure from the organisation.

The move was recommended by Fine Gael TD and PAC member Alan Dillon.

The committee is outlining recommendations made in its report into governance and oversight at RTÉ this morning.

Another PAC recommendation is that RTÉ put in place a clear methodology in relation to how it enters into exit arrangements with staff – that these are subject to board oversight – with clear communication to the Minister – recorded in writing.
