Government Compensation - Nov. 16, 2011
CONTROLLER JOHN CHIANG
Dear Chief Executive Officers:
You received a letter from us on August 2, 2011 about a Government Compensation in California (GCC) website, a cutting edge venture to increase government transparency and accountability. This website is a one-stop repository for salary, pension, and other key compensation data for all state and local officials and employees.
The California Community Colleges have earned and must continue to earn the public confidence that it provides education in an effective and cost-efficient manner. In this vein, we ask you, as well as your peers, to work closely with the State Controller's Office to collect and deliver this information for each of your employees, as well as the members of your board of trustees.
The GCC program is a statewide initiative sponsored by the State Controller's Office. To date, the GCC program has already successfully obtained and posted compensation data for more than 1.2 million positions on the State Controller's Office website at sco.ca.gov. So far, compensation information has been posted for cities, counties, special districts, all state departments, and the California State University. The next phase of the program will extend to the University of California and K-12 schools, as well as the California Community Colleges.
We are pleased to provide the Government Compensation in California (GCC) program for Calendar Year 2011 for the California Community Colleges to report to the State Controller's Office (SCO). The electronic spreadsheet template used to produce your report and all reporting filing instructions are available on the SCO website at: http://www.sco.ca.gov/ard_locinstr_govcomp_edu.html
Please submit your report by April 30, 2012.
