More than 15,000 Federal Employees Made At Least $200K in 2013 -- By The Washington Free Beacon Staff

More than 15,000 federal employees are made at least $200,000 in 2013, according to a new database compiled by FedSmith.com.

Those 15,000 employees represent just one percent of all federal workers.
National Journal reports:
The vast majority of the top 1 percent of feds were doctors at the Veterans Affairs Department. The highest earning employee was a Veterans Health Administration doctor in Pittsburgh, who took in just more than $400,000 last year. More than 1,200 employees made more than $300,000.
Other agencies that require a highly specialized workforce paid several employees at least $200,000, including the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Food and Drug Administration, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Financial Housing Finance Agency, and the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Federal employees can also receive large boosts to their base salaries through bonuses during the year.
Most bonuses are relatively small—fewer than 1,000 feds received a five-figure pay bump, according to the database. Some top executives, however, were able to really cash in.
