Bonuses for federal employees down by $43M last year

Federal workers received about $439 million in bonuses last year, down from $482 million in 2010.

Federal workers received about $439 million in bonuses last year, down from $482 million in 2010, the Asbury Park Press reports.

The amount “represents just 0.4 percent of the $105 billion in salaries for most of the government’s civilian employees,” notes the Park Press.

According to the report, Moira Mack, a spokesperson for the Office of Management and Budget, said the administration has “eliminated bonuses for all political appointees, directed agencies to adopt more rigorous personnel management processes and set a cap to reduce spending on awards for career staff, saving taxpayers an estimated $200 million this year alone.”
