State agencies and institutions of higher education
The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, under the authority of the General Appropriations Act (GAA), requires agencies and institutions to ensure payments of benefit costs are proportional to a state agency’s or institution of higher education’s method of finance unless another legal provision prohibits proportionality.
This policy does not apply to institutional funds held outside the State Treasury as those salaries are not eligible to be paid from State Treasury funds.
