I am requesting a copy of San Mateo County Harbor District's Employee Compensation Report for the 2017 and 2018 years under the provisions of California Govt. Code §§ 6250 - 6270, the California Public Records Act.
Please note that “employee” refers to anyone full or part-time paid by the district directly, for any wages or benefits (including part time employees or elected officials), in any manner.
Most California agencies find it easiest to respond to this request by producing a copy of the State Controller's Office (SCO) report that includes employee first and last names. Please provide a copy of the working report, or any other combination of records, that contains the compensation data found on the SCO report alongside employee names.
Alternatively, please provide copies of any other reports or records that contain information responsive to the purpose of this request for all individuals paid or provided benefits by the district : employee name in conjunction with their compensation data.
Please provide the requested materials or, per § 6253(c), a timeline along which they will be made available by, no later than ten days from the date of this request.
Per § 6253.9(a), we ask that you provide the records in an Excel spreadsheet format.
In an effort to standardize how this information is reported we are seeking the same categories of employee compensation that are found in the State Controller's Report. At a minimum, please include the following categories in your response:
- Position/Job Title (“Superintendent”, “Teacher”, etc.)
- Total Regular Pay
- Overtime Pay
- Other Pay (any additional forms of pay that are not reported in Regular Pay)
- Total Retirement (All forms of employer-paid retirement plan contributions, including defined benefit plan contributions or deferred compensation)
- Health Cost (all forms of employer-paid health and welfare benefits)
In the event San Mateo County Harbor District is not in possession of a record of this nature, we request copies of any record or records that contain information responsive to the purpose of this request - employee name in conjunction with their compensation data.
As a reminder, § 6253.1 instructs public agencies to "assist requester in finding records responsive to the purpose of the request."
Your jurisdiction's information will become part of the TransparentCalifornia.com website, which is provided to the public as a free service. The website is also intended to be a resource for public sector administrators, allowing easy comparisons across jurisdictions within the state for labor and other costs.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have.
