Recommended Operating Budget Addenda
Reduce funding for research, analysis, and reporting of major information technology projectsReduces funding for the activities involved in researching, analyzing, preparing and reviewing the agency's major information technology report, known as the Recommended Technology Investment Projects (RTIP) report. These tasks consume a great deal of effort, and the agency has found that the need for this information has decreased, particularly with the disbandment of the Information Technology Investment Board. The report will continue on a smaller scale with more targeted research and analysis.

Revise sum sufficient appropriations for information technology development and operationsUpdates the sum-sufficient appropriation language for VITA's information technology development and operations program, such that amounts listed in the appropriation act will conform to current projections of revenues and expenses. The increased amounts reflect growth in services, new services for workplace productivity and workplace collaboration, additional revenue from the provision of Medicaid related information technology services, and the cost of living adjustment in the Northrop Grumman Comprehensive Infrastructure Agreement.
Adjust budget detail related to centrally distributed fundingThis technical amendment aligns funding for Department of General Services rent charges and workers' compensation premiums to the proper program.
