loophole that could be used to continue to provide excessive pay through bonuses. The changesannounced here will close that loophole.We want to work with Congress to put in place this permanent solution, but we will not wait if Congressfails to act. So today we are announcing that we will take executive action to put this cap in place in FiscalYear 2013 under our own regulations if necessary.
 Notes on the 2010 Data
In an effort to increase transparency in this area, we are releasing a summary of the 2010 data that has ledto these changes. It is important to note several key limitations on the information as collected. First, asthe data predates the imposition of the FY 2012 cap, it does not reflect the changes that PHAs have madeto comply with the cap. Second, the data reflects total cash compensation, whereas the 2012 cap relatesonly to salary compensation (excluding bonuses). Finally, the data does not distinguish betweencompensation paid for with federal resources and that paid with non federal resources. Given theselimitations, we are requiring more comprehensive and detailed annual disclosure going forward, whichwill help us better track the pay levels at the PHAs.Tables 1 to 3 show the range of compensation for the highest paid PHA employee, organized by HUDregion and then by size of agency within each region. We believe that this format will make it easier forPHA boards to compare their pay with those of comparable PHAs, and to more easily comply with thenew caps that HUD will implement.How to read these tables:
The range created by the 25
th
percentile to the 75
th
percentile reflects the compensation range for50% of the highest paid employees within the subgroup. This is a useful benchmark forconsidering the generally competitive range for total compensation.
The median is the compensation at the center point of the range, at which there are an equalnumber of employees earning above and below that amount.For example, among the 27 agencies of more than 1,250 units in Region 2 (New York and New Jersey),the median compensation of the highest paid PHA employee in 2010 was $131,835; half of the agencieshighest paid employees were compensated between $102,225 and $154,013.
