A detailed list of expenses claimed by Remploy directors on a quarterly basis from April 2009 is available on Remploy's website
This shows that Remploy's eight directors spent £34,000 on expenses in the financial year to March 2011, a fall of £11,400 (25%) on the previous year.
The cost of travel by Remploy's 148 senior managers at M1 grade and above, including directors, was £1,120,000 for the financial year ending March 2011.
Remploy operates over 100 different locations and many business streams including a mobile sales task force—to ensure that these operate effectively employees are required to travel to customers, suppliers and the Remploy locations. Remploy continues to push web conferencing to avoid unnecessary travel and has benchmarked its arrangements with hotel providers. In addition no one in Remploy travels first class.
The Government believe all Departments, including non-departmental public bodies, need to show financial restraint in the current economic climate and scrutinise all spending to ensure value for money for the taxpayer.
