Good afternoon,


I am requesting a copy of the 

Port of Oakland's Employee Compensation Report for the 2017 and 2018 calendar years under the provisions of California Govt. Code §§ 6250 - 6270, the California Public Records Act.


The purpose of this request is to obtain records which provide a complete and comprehensive account of Port of Oakland's total costs associated with employee compensation. Specifically, this request seeks an accounting of total gross wages paid to each employee and the total cost incurred by the employer for providing retirement and health benefits.


In an effort to standardize how this information is reported, please include the following categories in your response:


  • Employee Name

  • Position/Job Title

  • Annual Salary Minimum & Maximum

  • Total Regular Pay

  • Overtime Pay

  • Other Pay (any additional forms of pay that are not reported in Regular Pay)

  • Total Retirement Cost (All forms of employer-paid retirement contributions, deferred compensation and health benefits.)

  • Total Health Cost (All forms of employer-paid health and welfare benefits, such as health, dental and vision insurance benefits.)


In the event 

the Port of Oaklandis not in possession of a record of this nature, we request copies of any other record or records that contain information, even if only in part, that is responsive to the purpose of this request — employee name in conjunction with their compensation data for the 2018 year.


Please provide the requested materials or, per § 6253(c), a timeline along which they will be made available by, no later than ten days from the date of this request.


Per § 6253.9(a), we ask that you provide the records in an Excel spreadsheet format.


As a reminder, § 6253.1 instructs public agencies to "assist requester in finding records responsive to the purpose of the request."


Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you might have.
