Recommended Operating Budget Addenda
Distribute Central Appropriations amounts to agency budgetsAdjusts the agency budget to reflect amounts moved from Central Appropriations to cover the cost of items such as the continuation of 2007 and 2008 salary and health insurance premium increases, as well as changes in retirement and disability contribution rates and other centrally funded items. For each year, $213,754 (GF) and $290,381 (NGF).
Eliminate the Virginia Information Providers Network appropriationRemoves the Virginia Information Providers Network appropriation as it is no longer needed as presented. Management of this service, which provides electronic government oversight, has been outsourced. The Virginia Information Technologies Agency continues to receive a nominal amount of revenue that is recorded as part of the agency’s internal service fund. For each year, a reduction of $6.3 million (NGF).
Increase nongeneral fund appropriation for the geographic information programAdjusts the dedicated special revenue fund appropriation for the Virginia Geographic Information Network program to account for an approved rate structure for base mapping and other geospatial information services. Previously, these services were funded by general fund dollars. For each year, $769,163 (NGF).
Eliminate obsolete special fund appropriationRemoves a special fund appropriation was originally established to collect and expend revenue associated with workshops offered by technology planning. The services are now inactive. Remaining cash balances were transferred to the general fund by the Department of Accounts in December 2006. For each year, a reduction of $21,609 (NGF).
Increase special fund appropriation supporting special fund activitiesAdjusts the Acquisition Services Special Fund appropriation to align it with projected revenues and expenses in the next biennium. The fund is used to finance procurement and contracting activities and costs unallowable for federal fund reimbursement. For each year, $1.7 million (NGF).
Eliminate information technology related operating efficiencies savings assessmentReduces the impact of a previously enacted savings requirement for information technology related operational efficiencies within the Virginia Information Technologies Agency. This action will protect the agency against the loss of unattainable savings required in Item 422 of Chapter 847, 2007 Acts of Assembly. The savings are factored into the public-private agreement with Northrop Grumman, Inc., thus the agency no longer has control over these savings. For each year, $4.9 million (GF).
Implement previously approved fee structureReplaces the previous general fund appropriation for oversight of the Virginia Geographic Information Network (VGIN) with new fees for these services as instructed by the 2007 Acts of Assembly, Chapter 847. The new fees are effective July1, 2008. For each year, a reduction of $344,334 (GF).
