The FBI is the most expensive of the federal agencies, but it doesn’t pay all of its employees very well.
The Bureau has long relied on a mix of public and private contractors to run its operations.
The federal government spends about $40 billion a year on those contractors, according to the Government Accountability Office.
That money has allowed the bureau to hire a huge number of new employees and to expand its workforce, which is now more than 10,000 people.
In addition to paying for salaries, the Bureau also pays its employees to provide support to other federal agencies.
The FBI also runs a vast array of IT programs, from the investigation of bank fraud to the forensic computer examiner program.
While the Bureau spends money on these programs, it also spends a great deal of it on salaries.
Federal law prohibits agencies from paying its employees less than the prevailing wage for similar positions.
It also prohibits agencies that receive a federal grant from paying employees below that rate.
This year, the FBI was hit with a budget shortfall.
It announced it was cutting its workforce by about 13 percent in 2017 and 2018, though the bureau has not released the numbers.
The bureau announced it would cut its workforce in February, but only after it announced that it would continue to spend millions on recruiting.
The bureau also has a history of using public money to pay people above the federal minimum wage, which makes the federal government’s salary payments look relatively generous.
The Bureau of Prisons, for example, is required to pay employees at least $9.70 per hour, which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says is more than the average federal salary of $7.85.
And the Bureau’s Inspector General’s Office, which conducts audits of agencies, was required to spend $1.2 million last year to pay overtime to a total of 10 employees.
As of mid-January, the bureau had more than $7 billion in its payroll and another $3 billion in debt, according an estimate by the nonpartisan Center for Public Integrity.
It is currently facing a shortfall of $1 billion in the 2018 fiscal year.
The report estimates the bureau could save $3.3 billion by raising salaries.
