NC State has responded to two News & Observer requests for information regarding compensation for employees. The requests were made to General Administration and to all UNC universities; NC State provided its responses on July 15.
The first request was for all compensation, including retreat packages, for deans and vice chancellors and above. The second was for all salary and leave-related information on every active NC State employee, including accrued annual leave, sick leave, comp time and bonus leave. Overtime paid from July 1, 2008, to June 30, 2009, also was included.
The state attorney general has ruled that the information is not personnel data that is protected by state or federal statute and must be released.
