The request was successful.

Dear Department of Education (Northern Ireland),

I was wondering if you could tell me if any Department of Education staff that received any kind of bonus in the calendar years of 2010,2011,2012,2013 and to-date in 2014; the reason for the bonus; the job title of staff member that decides if a bonus is to be awarded or not

Also the number of staff in the Department that have been issued with a credit or debit card for work related business in the calendar years of 2010,2011,2012,2013 and to-date in 2014; the make of each card eg; MasterCard, Visa Debit card issued by Ulster Bank etc; if all staff that have been issued with a card must provide a copy of all receipts to their superior officer at the end of each month to ensure all costs incurred by the card are strictly work related costs only.

Many Thanks
