Provide supplemental funding for the general fund share of state agency Cardinal costsProvides funding for the general fund share of state agency Cardinal operating costs. These costs will be paid by agencies through premium charges based on each agency’s share of total statewide financial transactions as applied to the agency’s fund split in the 2012 Appropriation Act. The recommended amount for FY 2014 represents the general fund share for the agencies expected to be phased onto Cardinal in FY 2014. Throughout FY 2015, the remaining state agencies will be transferred onto Cardinal and the total costs will increase accordingly.
FY 2013 FY 2014 General Fund $ 0 $ 215,101
Establish retail maintenance network for maintenance drugsProvides for the establishment of a retail maintenance network for maintenance drugs that includes penalties for non-use of the retail maintenance network. Total cost savings are projected to be approximately $10.4 million annually, of which just under half ($4.875 million) would be general fund savings.

Provide funding to maintain the Time, Attendance, and Leave system (TAL)Provides funding for the general fund share of charges to state agencies for the maintenance of the Department of Human Resource Management's (DHRM's) new Time, Attendance, and Leave system (TAL). TAL is DHRM’s automated solution for the state’s labor-intensive time, attendance, and leave process that most agencies continue to use. The new system will eliminate unnecessary data entry and streamline human resource management and payroll-related business processes across state agencies. The funding will be for staff (manager, senior systems analyst, programmer, and help desk support), software tools, hardware, disaster recovery, and other related costs. The maintenance costs for TAL will be paid out of an internal service fund administered by the Department of Accounts, similar to the process used for maintenance costs for both Cardinal (the state's new accounting system) and the Performance Budgeting system.
FY 2013 FY 2014 General Fund $ 0 $ 340,934
