Membership Meeting Affirms Recommendations of MEA MCCP B&C Working Group 
At a meeting held on November 17th, the MEA MCCP B&C Working Group presented a number of recommendations developed over the last three months. The group sought over six meetings to operationalize new MOU language negotiated in 2014 which seeks to increase transparency and access to the MCCP (MTAM) B&C process. Among the recommendations that will now be the subject of discussions between MEA, DHR, MTA and the Controller’s Office:
 Notification of timeline and criteria to all eligible employees
 Data on all submissions provided to MEA
 Minimum and maximum allocation standards
 Ability to self-nominate for consideration
 No allocations in consecutive years
 Program funding included in base budget figures
 Specific focus on retention and internal equity for ongoing adjustments
 Supplemental fund for smaller departments
The working group will be meeting with the City and MTA shortly to ensure that whatever modifications are agreed to can be implemented in time for the relaunch in FY 15-16.

Controller Releases New Public Data on Employee Compensation The Office of the Controller has released an update to the interactive website for viewing budget and actual data at the SFOpenBook transparency portal (
Employee compensation data is now available on SFOpenBook as a new standalone report showing employee level data. This is in addition to the summary-level salary and benefit data available in both the Budget and Spending and Revenue reports. This allows users to view the regular, overtime, and other salaries, as well as city-paid benefits earned by city employees.
Employee compensation is shown by employee but without names (each row represents one employee but only job title and code are displayed). Department, job family, and union are available as optional report columns. The data can be filtered by department, job family, union, or job and is available starting with fiscal and calendar years 2013. To protect confidentiality as legally required, pro-rated citywide averages are presented in lieu of employee-specific health and dental benefits.
