For once, University of Iowa President Sally Mason’s salary is right up there with the coaches, hospital administrators and surgeons she leads.
Mason was paid $972,605 in the year that ended June 30 — almost double the $492,000 she made the previous year — because of the one-time retention pay she received after being at UI for five years.
Mason is the fifth-highest paid state employee for fiscal 2013, behind the football and basketball coaches at UI and Iowa State University. The state’s highest-paid employee, yet again, is UI Football Coach Kirk Ferentz, who was paid $3.77 million last year.
The Iowa salary database contains information about just over 60,000 state employees employed in Iowa during fiscal year 2011 which ended June 30, 2013.
The database can be searched by name, department, gender and county.
The database is based on electronic information collected by the Iowa Department of Administrative Services which publishes the state salary book.
Listings are searchable by last name, department or county of employment. When searching by last name, your search will return records for all employees whose last names contain your search term (i.e., “Smith” would return John Smith as well as John Smith-Jones). Any field can be left blank to search everything within that category.
