Expenses

 

This section includes vendor payments for all State Agencies, Branches, Constitutional Offices, Independent Agencies, Boards and Commissions that are funded via the State budget.  Additionally, summary employee compensation by fiscal year, fund type, organization and category for the Executive and Judicial branches is included in this section.  Employee compensation (on a calendar year basis, by employee name) can be found in the Employee Compensation section. This website contains detail transactions which are uploaded to the website monthly.  These transactions have not been audited.  

 

Employee Compensation

 

In addition to salary information on a calendar year basis, by employee name, Agency and Payroll Company for the Executive and Judicial branches, employee compensation amounts include benefit amounts paid on behalf of, but not necessarily to, the employee, such as health and dental insurance, retirement, etc.  These benefits have a direct benefit to the employee.  Other payments not directly related to the employee are not included such as retiree health insurance, retirement unfunded actuarial liability and workers compensation.  Employee Compensation transactions are uploaded annually.  For analysis purposes, employee compensation information by fiscal year, fund type, organization and category can be found in the Expenses section.

 


What is not included in Maine Open Checkbook

Summary information or protected data, expenses of Agencies who do not receive direct appropriations within the State budget, and expense related to Universities, local governments, cities and towns are not included in Maine Open Checkbook.

The State of Maine is committed to maintaining the highest levels of data security and privacy. For this reason, not all State payments will be displayed.  Some payment information is withheld because it may contain protected information, e.g., personal information of victims of domestic violence.  Additionally, some of the expenditure data is considered private or protected under State and federal laws, such as Taxpayer Identification Numbers or street addresses.   If a payee/vendor/customer name is protected by law, the vendor name will be displayed as "Not Provided" on the detail transaction page.

The following table lists the objects of expense where specific details have been redacted.
