Audit Reports Affecting Multiple Agencies

A Quarterly Report of Full-Time Equivalent State Employees for the Quarter Ending February 29, 1996

Report Number 96-711
May 1996

Overall Conclusion

There were 264,441 full-time equivalent (FTE) state employees for the quarter ending February 29, 1996, according to reports filed by 210 state agencies and institutions of higher education.

Key Facts and Findings

There were 245,153 full-time state employees and 64,219 part-time state employees.

The number of full-time equivalent employees in state agencies decreased by 1,852 and the number of employees in state institutions of higher education increased by 85 over the quarter ending November 30, 1995, resulting in a net decrease of 1,767 (or 0.66 percent).

The majority of the decrease in state agencies' employees occurred in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (decrease of 1,167 FTEs), primarily as the result of transferring 775 psychiatric positions to The University of Texas Medical Branch.

Adjusting for agencies without FTE target levels and institutions of higher education by removing them from the analysis, the resulting figure of 151,414 FTE employees is 6.90 percent below the overall FTE target level of 161,870.
