Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) chief executive David Higgins and Nuclear Decommissioning Authority chief executive Tony Fountain are among the highest paid quango employees, the government said last week.
Higgins is paid up to £395,000 for his job which finishes in 2012, and Fountain gets up to £370,000.
The list covers public sector employees earning more than £150,00 a year.
ODA construction director Howard Shiplee earns up to £290,000 while infrastructure director Simon Wright and transport director Hugh Sumner each receive up to £230,000.
Highways Agency major projects director Nirmal Kotecha just scrapes onto the list with a salary of up to £155,000, earning slightly less than British Waterways operations director Vince Moran’s up to £160,000.
The list of 332 people working for non departmental public bodies earning more than £150,000 was produced by the Cabinet Office as part of its drive to make government more transparent.
It is the first time this information has been published in one place and some of it has never been made public before.
Prime Minister David Cameron earns £142,500.
