KOSI Corporation Ltd, a company in Northern Ireland, has won the tender from the HSE to deliver the pandemic bonus to non-HSE staff.

The company won the contract and has already started working with the HSE and Department of Health to identify those eligible for the payment.

A HSE spokesman told Irish Examiner that KOSI will be providing guidance on the process to those employers.


The delays in pay have been heavily criticised and blamed by the HSE on technical difficulties paying people outside their own payroll system.

Health Minister Stephen Donnelly has said there are “only six areas of healthcare now being considered for remaining payments.”

Up until October 14, 85,632 HSE staff had received the payment.

People working for Section 38 agencies, which are HSE-funded to provide services, also received payment. This bought the total to 124,201.
