To determine whether pay compression exists, the State Auditor’s Office reviewed the annual base salaries as of June 30, 2020, of executive officers and full-time classified,
unclassified, and other exempt employees at state agencies (excluding higher education institutions; legislative agencies; elected officials; the Secretary of State; the courts;
and self-directed, semi-independent agencies) and determined that:
A total of 26 employees at 12 state agencies had annual base salaries that exceeded the annual base salaries of their executive officers (see Table 5).
A total of 31 employees at 19 state agencies had annual base salaries that were the same as or within 10.0 percent less than their executive officers' annual base salaries (see Table 6).
