Advisory non-departmental public bodies (ANDPBs) do not generally employ staff but are supported by their parent department. Seven of the Department’s eight ANDPBs do not have staff and the eighth, the Independent Reconfiguration Panel, reported two full-time equivalent (FTE) staff in the Public Bodies 2014 Report.

Of the eight ANDPBs, the Independent Reconfiguration Panel has a paid Chief Executive/Secretary position with a salary of £112,200.

The average Chief Executive remuneration for the executive agencies is £167,500.

The average number of FTE staff for the Department’s executive agencies as at 31 October 2014 was 3,244.

The average Chief Executive remuneration for executive non-departmental public bodies is £175,357.

The average number of FTE staff for the Department’s executive non-departmental public bodies as at 31 October 2014 was 1,635

Non-ministerial departments (Food Standards Agency):

The last period for which figures are available is the 2013-14 financial year.

For that period the Chief Executive remuneration was a salary of between £140,000 and £145,000 plus bonus of between £10,000 and £15,000.

The average number of FTE staff was 1,264 for 2013-14. This figure excludes the board and temporary staff (contractors, agency staff, casuals and staff on fixed term contracts). The average FTE staff including temporary staff and Board members was 1,787. Both figures exclude staff who are members of the FSA Scientific Advisory committees.
