Since 2010 there is no subvention paid directly by my Department for public transport services. The award of Public Service Obligation (PSO) contracts falls under the independent statutory remit of the National Transport Authority (NTA), which has direct responsbility for this area. The total Public Service Obligation (PSO) subvention provided to CIE by both this Department and the NTA (since 2010) in the years 2005 to 2014 is as follows:
