Tusla staff were overpaid over €1m last year: report

Staff at Tusla were overpaid by €1.145m last year because the agency has yet to figure out how to prevent over- payments five years after it was established.

The contracts are split between business support services and social, health and cultural services.

On overpayments, it says this was inherited when it took over child and family services from the HSE in 2014. The value has “incrementally increased each year from 2014 onwards”, the report says.

Among the notable achievements in 2018 was the provision to all 17 Tusla areas of the National Childcare Information System.

The number of complaints about Tusla services was 732 in 2018. Lack of response/ no response to communications/ poor communications accounted for more than 20%. The agency has not yet developed an efficient means of gathering and analysing complaints data, the report says.
