Audit Reports Affecting Multiple Agencies
A Quarterly Report of Full-Time Equivalent State Employees
for the Quarter Ending February 28, 1997
There were 269,174 full-time equivalent (FTE) state employees for the quarter ending February 28,
1997, according to reports filed by 213 state agencies and institutions of higher education.
Key Facts and Findings
There were 246,687 full-time state employees and 67,607 part-time state employees.
In comparison to the quarter ending November 30, 1996, the number of FTE
employees in state agencies increased by 1,278, and the number of employees in
state institutions of higher education decreased by 1,589. This resulted in a net
decrease of 311 (0.12 percent).
The largest increase in FTEs (322) occurred at the Texas Department of Transportation
as a result of overtime worked due to inclement winter weather. The Texas Youth
Commission reported an increase of 283 FTE employees as a result of the transfer of
the Hamilton Unit from the Texas Department of Corrections. Several of the
legislative agencies experienced increases in FTEs because of seasonal hiring for the
legislative session. The Adjutant General's Department FTE count increased by 76 to
support two federally funded vehicle repair programs.
The largest decreases in FTEs occurred at several institutions of higher education as
a result of decreased staffing levels for the Spring semester.
After adjusting for agencies without FTE target levels and institutions of higher
education by removing them from the analysis, the number of FTE employees
(152,001) in the remaining 132 agencies is 6.20 percent below the adjusted overall
FTE target level of 161,426.
