Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The University of California spent more on compensation in 2010 than it did the year before, but UC is relying less on students and the state's general fund to make payroll -- and more on its hospitals and the federal government.

Those are some findings from the annual report on compensation UC released today. The report compares UC's compensation practices from 2009 to 2010. Among the details:

• UC's total payroll grew by $107.7 million, or about 1 percent, during the period. UC spent $9.9 billion -- nearly half of its operating budget -- on salaries in 2010.

• The amount of UC's payroll that came from student fees and the state's general fund went down 6 percent, while the amount of its payroll that came from the federal government went up 8 percent and the portion coming from its hospitals went up 3 percent.

• UC spent $5.2 million less on salaries for teaching faculty, but $76.4 million more on salaries for clinical faculty. It also increased salary for health care employees by $62.7 million.
