It has been more than a month since Paul Bayly commenced his duties as CEO of the Recovery and Development Agency (RDA) but, to date, his salary of has not been decided.
Premier and Minister of Finance Dr D Orlando Smith made that claim in the House of Assembly on Thursday, September 13.
“The board of the RDA are still working on finalising the terms of engagement of Mr Bayly,” said Dr Smith while answering questions from Opposition legislator, Julian Fraser.
“As soon as they (the salary estimates) are forwarded to me, then I will have it Cabinet and then I will have it [brought] to the House of Assembly,” he added.
While government continues to work out compensation for the Bayley, no salaries or stipends are being paid to any of the other members of the RDA.
He said any decision to offer monetary compensation to RDA members is entirely a matter for government.
The RDA board comprises chairman Dr Robert Mathavious, Pastor Gregory George who was selected by the Premier, Maria Mays who selected by the governor, Sharie DeCastro who was selected by the Opposition leader, David Hancock select by the UK, Monica La Bennett who was selected by the Caribbean Development Bank, Clarence Faulkner (civil society representative), and Clyde Lettsome (private sector representative).
