Rounding out the top five are the Nuclear Regulatory Commission ($130,076), NASA ($122,767), and the Department of Energy ($115,600).

The bottom of the list is comprised of the Social Security Administration ($79,505), the Department of the Army ($78,278), the Department of Veterans Affairs ($77,525), and the Department of Agriculture ($76,144), with the Department of the Air Force ($75,897) taking the last spot.
