Figures represent full-time equivalents (FTEs) paid from budgeted funds, and exclude those paid from capital, federal grants and trust funds. FY2010 FTE figures are preliminary and may not represent actual levels.

FY10 employee levels for the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs are consistent with reductions taken. Further evaluation must be conducted by each office to determine the impact on employee levels. FTEs grew in the Executive Office due to the shift of 62 information technology FTEs from the underlying agencies. In addition, 30 information technology FTEs were reassigned from off-budget accounts to chargeback accounts within the Executive Office, but their salaries will continue to be paid from the off-budget sources. Additionally, other increases to employee levels represent employees needed to implement the Regional Greenhouse Gas initiative started in FY09 funded from off-budget sources.
