The state website that discloses pay data for California public employees has gotten a little bit bigger.
State Controller John Chiang on Monday announced that compensation data for 268,442 University of California employees to the publicpay.ca.gov website. The site also was updated to include 2013 wage and benefit information for 235,249 state employees and 105,209 employees of California State University (CSU).
“I commend the University of California and its Office of the President for following through on their commitment to open up their books by joining my public compensation website,” Chiang said. “Transparency matters to parents, students, and California taxpayers because it promotes accountability and fosters increased public participation.
“Those who work at California’s public institutions of higher learning – whether in maintaining facilities, groundbreaking research, or teaching – are involved in the tough job of making sure generations of students receive the best education. And now, the public is better served by having them accounted for on publicpay.ca.gov.”
According to Chiang’s office, with the addition of the UC system the site now contains information on nearly 5.6 million positions and $294 billion in wages paid in 2013.
