State employee payroll data is shown on a calendar year basis as provided by the Department of Administration. Data excludes retirees, resident workers, members of a home, national guardsmen and students.
The agency reported for each employee reflects the last agency or agencies the employee is/was employed with as of the end of the pay calendar year and is not necessarily the agency the employee worked for during the entire year. Employees may hold multiple positions during the year or at a single time.
The amounts listed in Total Pay include ALL types of earnings including but not limited to overtime, bonuses, and shift differential from all revenue sources, which may include non-state funds. Items not included in Gross Wage are fringe benefit income, taxable group life, KPERS, deferred comp, TSA and VTSA, Dependent Care and Health Care, before-tax health insurance (medical, dental, drug, and vision), before-tax parking, 1042 treaty exempt income, federal foster grandparent pay, and federal employee Thrift Savings Plan.
Gross Wage and Overtime columns are the total dollar amounts earned per-year per-employee and not divided if an employee has multiple jobs. Overtime is broken out because it is a significant portion of total pay for many employees.
Some state university athletic coaches are not listed because they are paid through privately raised funds and that information is not discoverable under the Kansas Open Records Act (KORA) but you can find their income in their employment agreements listed in Contracts.
