Revise FSA Administration

The Health Care Authority will bill agencies directly for the cost of negotiated health flexible spending accounts that were approved in the 2019-21 budget. Since the money will no longer move through the Office of Financial Management, this funding is removed because it is not needed in the second fiscal year. (Personnel Service Account - State)

This is a technical adjustment for budget monitoring purposes to align FTE staff with funding received through internal agency agreements.

Integrated Early Learning Options

This item funds contracts for project management and fiscal modeling to support the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction's collaboration with the Department of Children, Youth, and Families to complete a report with options and recommendations for administrative efficiencies and long-term strategies which align and integrate high-quality early learning programs administered by both agencies.

(Education Technology Revolving Acct - Non-Appropriated, Personnel Service Account - State)

Compensation Structure Proposal

This funding provides for the transition to a market-informed salary structure for all exempt employees. Following in the footsteps of the Legislature, this will enable the agency to retain key positions, recruit in hard-to-fill areas, and reduce turnover related to competitive compensation. Demand has increased for experienced professional staff in areas related to accounting, budgeting, forecasting and human resources in both the public and private sectors which respond by creating positions at higher salary levels to attract candidates.
