Applicable to

State agencies and institutions of higher education


Minority hiring practices are reported annually for state agencies and institutions in the Equal Employment Opportunity Report and submitted 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. Both summaries show the number of African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Caucasian Americans, other Americans, male, female and total employees in each job code. (See the Legend of Codes section for CAPPS, HRIS, SPRS or USPS.)

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

CAPPS agencies

CAPPS HR/Payroll Hub and Central agencies submit EEO 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. CAPPS Central agencies can refer to the CAPPS Central Agency Instructions section of this fiscal policy and procedure (FPP) for additional information.

Preliminary report

Agencies and institutions receive a preliminary report to allow time to review the data and enter or submit changes before the final report is sent to TWC. Preliminary copies of the 2019 Equal Employment Opportunity Report will be sent to agencies and institutions via electronic file transfer (EFT).

Acknowledgment form

After receiving the preliminary report, agencies and institutions must complete the electronic Preliminary Equal Employment Opportunity Report Acknowledgment form in this FPP and submit it to the Comptroller’s office. The form is available via this FPP from the date the Preliminary Report is available through the acknowledgment due date. The Comptroller’s office monitors these forms to ensure all agencies and institutions have received the preliminary report and have had the opportunity to make changes as needed. See Calendar for dates and times.

Final report

Final copies of the 2019 Equal Employment Opportunity Report are sent to each agency and institution via EFT. The final report reflects all maintenance or corrections entered or submitted to HRIS, SPRS (includes CAPPS data) or USPS. The Comptroller’s office sends the final reports to the Civil Rights Division of TWC.


Each instructions section of this FPP includes:

  • Correction instructions
  • Legend of codes
  • Selection criteria (as defined by TWC)
  • Supporting detail file format
