FY 2011 FY 2012 General Fund $ 0 $ 50,000,000
Provide a potential bonus for state employeesProvides the authority to award a bonus payment for state employees of up to two percent in FY 2012 provided that the general fund balance recommended for reversion at the end of FY 2011 meets certain criteria. This bonus payment is intended to share the results of operational efficiencies and other efforts to reduce spending with state employees.
Provide additional funding for Line of Duty ratesProvides additional funding to aid state agencies and institutions of higher education with Line of Duty Act costs. Preliminary estimates provided by the Virginia Retirement System estimate approximately $3.4 million will be needed in FY 2012 to cover state agency costs for the Line of Duty program.
FY 2011 FY 2012 General Fund $ 0 $ 400,000
Provide additional funding for state employee retirement contributionsIncreases the employer contribution paid on behalf of state employees for defined benefit retirement programs by four percent effective July 1, 2011.

Provide funding for increased information technology costs due to new rate structureTransfers funding to and from impacted agencies to cover unbudgeted changes in costs resulting from a new information technology rates structure implemented on July 1, 2010. Statewide, the new rates result in an increase in costs though some agencies will experience savings. These increases reflect the persistent disparity between information technology costs and budgets, attributable to the implementation of decentralized rates as well as historical underfunding of agencies' information technology requirements. With some exceptions, agencies will receive no more than 97 percent of their share of identified general fund impact in the second year and will be guided by language in the Appropriation Act to participate in a savings incentive program that can reduce their costs by at least three percent through a comprehensive information technology assessment.
