THE former chief executive of the Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA) did not inform his board about salary increases given to staff.

The pay rises were given despite the fact there was no evidence they had been approved by the Environment Minister.

A report revealed yesterday that Paul Maloney (51), who resigned as chief executive of the DDDA last year, did not inform board members of the salary increases or the renewal of staff contracts.

One contract was renewed in April last year, despite the Government's recruitment moratorium.

"There was no oversight of the CEO in his execution of these responsibilities, partly because the CEO did not bring these matters to the board's attention," the report said.

Attempts to speak to Mr Maloney about the report at his home in south Dublin yesterday were unsuccessful.

Mr Maloney retired from the authority last June, 11 months before his five-year contract was due to end.
