Audit Reports Affecting Multiple Agencies

A Quarterly Report of Full-Time Equivalent State Employees for the Quarter Ending May 31, 1996

Report Number 96-717
August 1996

Overall Conclusion

There were 267,162 full-time equivalent (FTE) state employees for the quarter ending May 31, 1996, according to reports filed by 210 state agencies and institutions of higher education.

Key Facts and Findings

There were 245,298 full-time state employees and 57,902 part-time state employees.

The number of FTE employees in state agencies increased by 201, and the number of FTE employees in state institutions of higher education increased by 2,519 over the quarter ending February 29, 1996, resulting in a net increase of 2,720 (or 1.03 percent).

The largest single increase (606 FTE employees) was the result of the transfer of medical personnel to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, which was due to the creation of the new prison managed health care program. The quarter ending May 31, 1996, is the first full quarter to reflect this transfer that occurred during the course of the quarter ending February 29, 1996.

Adjusting for agencies without FTE target levels and institutions of higher education by removing them from the analysis, the number of FTE employees (151,610) in the remaining 136 agencies is 6.77 percent below the adjusted overall FTE target level of 161,870.
