As always some Charities are more efficient than others. Of the poor performers some may be skimming for the benefit of those within the charities but I would be reluctant to say that is the truth in General and the shops are just run by people who have no commercial experience.
Every charity shop would need at least one paid shop manager with prior retail experience in order to manage staff(volunteers), pilferage by staff and public and stock management.

Charities- the gift that keeps on giving

Vatican linked to secret €1.85 million payments to charity chiefs
http://www.irishtimes.com/news/health/v ... -1.3104804
Quote:
The St John of God organisation made €1.85 million in undisclosed payments to senior managers after being instructed by the Vatican to deal with outstanding liabilities, according to a confidential HSE audit of the charity...
...The audit uncovered secret payments totalling €6.24 million to senior lay executives. This includes a defined benefit pension scheme which transferred €3.586 million to four senior managers and unapproved increases in their salaries amounting to €277,152.
The audit says St John of God has not complied with public pay policy for over 30 years, despite relying on over €130 million a year in State funding. Since at least 1986, “other entities” within the charity have been supplementing the salary of senior executives, whose pay costs are funded by the Exchequer.
The charity on Thursday night apologised unreservedly for any hurt caused by the issues raised in the audit but said it did not believe it had deliberately misled the HSE at any point....
...The audit report, which is a draft but close to finalisation, says the effect of the top-ups was to transfer the liability for future pensions on increased salaries to the taxpayer. It says the extent and duration of the pay policy breaches are “concerning” and SJOG had “many opportunities from 2013 to make a full disclosure” but did not do so until June 2016.
However, a compensation scheme was also devised for the managers under which they received lump-sum payments through a private payroll totalling €1.829 million (including employer’s PRSI) which was subject to tax.



http://www.irishtimes.com/news/ireland/ ... -1.3104732
Quote:
The audit maintained that the St John of God order considered the application of the pension levy to the full salary to the managers in receipt of the top-up arrangements to be inappropriate as they were not making pension contributions in respect of the additional salary and would only secure pension benefits on the State-approved element of their remuneration.
“For this reason, the provincial of the St John of God decided to establish an order payroll – a private payroll – on which the non-pensionable portion of the directors’ and chief executive’s salary was paid.”...
...In November, as the storm over top-ups continued, St John of God engaged financial advisors and sought to address its non-compliance with pay policy.
In late November 13 of the 14 managers had their salaries on the exchequer -funded payroll increased to take account of the value of their previously-private top-up arrangement. These salary rises ranged from 5 per cent to 48.5 per cent.
The full salary was now subject to both the pension levy and pension contributions from that point. The cost of the increased salary was funded by a management charge to the Hospitaller Order of St John of God Western Europe Province. In essence it was privately funded but the audit said no approval was sought from the HSE for these salary increases.

Or could it be that Oxfams support for contraception conflict with Goal's more Catholic ideology?

Why would they have started [public] negotiations in that case?

Seems Goal aren't as fucked as they were before so no need to cut costs?

Quote:
However in recent weeks Irish Aid has approved a contract for €9 million for Goal for 2017 and the agency has been awarded new US funding in Sudan, Ethiopia and Honduras and is in discussions in relation to new funding for Haiti and Syria.

panic averted!

Goal is an NGO that is much too tightly aligned with certain US government entities and perfect fodder for it's most unscrupulous arms like the CIA. I noted this back in 2012.

People who work for John O'Shea's GOAL and other NGOs should be very mindful of the struggle between the West and China over access to resources in Africa and the willingness of the US state department to use them to further its own ends. Both John O'Shea and Samantha Power are aligned over the use of "military force to prevent genocide". People who work for NGOs in regions where the US decides to actively take an interest could one day find themselves front and center of any dispute.
