Certain statewide hiring practices are reported each year in the Annual Report and submitted by the Civil Rights Division of the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) to the Legislative Budget Board and the Governor’s Office of Budget, Planning and Policy. The report consists of the new hire summary and the agency workforce summary for the period from Sept. 1 through Aug. 31.

Using the report selection criteria provided by TWC, statistics used to produce the Annual Report are extracted from data state agencies and institutions of higher education entered or submitted into the Human Resource Information System (HRIS), Standardized Payroll/Personnel Reporting System (SPRS) or Uniform Statewide Payroll/Personnel System (USPS).

CAPPS HR /Payroll agencies submit data to SPRS to facilitate statewide reporting requirements. Corrections made in CAPPS are generated and sent to SPRS via an automated batch process, when applicable. For questions on how to correct data in CAPPS or for assistance correcting SPRS-related data, authorized CAPPS Agency Level 1 support staff may contact the CAPPS Help Desk.

Preliminary Report

A preliminary report is provided to allow agencies and institutions time to review the data and enter or submit changes before the final report is sent to TWC.

Preliminary copies of the Annual Report will be sent to agencies and institutions via electronic file transfer (EFT). Upon receipt of the preliminary report, the electronic Report Acknowledgement Form available in this fiscal policy and procedure (FPP) must be completed and submitted to the Comptroller’s office. The Comptroller’s office monitors these acknowledgements to ensure all agencies and institutions have received the reports and have the opportunity to make changes as needed. See Calendar for dates and times.


Corrections must be made by the correction deadlines. Any corrections to records after the deadlines will not be reflected in the final report. See Calendar for deadlines.

Final report

Final copies of the Annual Report will be sent to each agency and institution, and TWC, via EFT. The final report reflects all maintenance and corrections entered or submitted into HRIS, SPRS or USPS. See Calendar for dates and times.
