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.
