To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to Tennessee's Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
A copy of the most recent database maintained by this agency detailing government employee compensation across the state.
I am specifically requesting that this release include, for each State employee, the following: Name of Employee, Age, Gender, Ethnicity, Job Title, Agency/department, City/location in which employee is stationed, and Earnings.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 7 business days, as the statute requires.
Tennessee employee salaries are posted on our website at https://apps.tn.gov/salary-app/search.html
I'm following up on the Freedom of Information Request for Tennessee State employee salary data. Can we please access a file with all of the salary information in one? The web interface will not allow us to see more than a few entries at a time. Thank you!
We've received your August 9, 2016 request for a single, searchable file with all of the salary information of state employees.
The right of access to such records rests with citizens of our state pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated §10-7-503(a), and identification would be required to establish citizenship.
However, the Department of Finance & Administration is not the custodian of a file meeting the requirements specified in your request. The Tennessee Department of Human Resources may be the custodian of a record responsive to your request. If you have any questions or wish to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to contact me.
