Policy Changes

Continue IT Position

The Public Dislosure Commission was provided two IT staff positions over a three-year period to meet the demands of maintaining online filing and disclosure systems. With these two positions, the agency has been able to work continuously toward replacing components of its electronic filing and disclosure systems at an acceptable pace. At the end of the 2019-21 biennium, the temporary funding provided for these positions will lapse. Funding is provided to retain these positions using the Public Disclosure Transparency Account established in 2018. (Public Disclosure Transparency Acct - State)

Training and Outreach Position

In the 2019-21 biennium, one-time funding was provided for a training and outreach specialist position to develop course materials and facilitate the creation of an expanded filer training program. Continued development of filer assistance materials and the full operation of the agency's training program depends on this staff position. This funding will retain the position through the Public Disclosure Transparency Account established in 2018. (Public Disclosure Transparency Acct - State)

Pension Adjustments, nonrate

This funds the potential impact of Department of Retirement Systems request legislation on pension service credit and benefit calculation. It will prevent budget reductions such as temporary layoffs from negatively affecting employee retirement benefits. (General Fund - State)

State Employee Benefits

Health insurance funding is provided for state employees who are not represented by a union, who are covered by a bargaining agreement that is not subject to financial feasibility determination, or who are not part of the coalition of unions for health benefits. The insurance funding rate is $988 per employee per month for fiscal year 2022 and $1,018 per employee per month for fiscal year 2023. (General Fund - State)

Audit Services

Adjustments are made for each agency’s anticipated cost of audits performed by the State Auditor’s Office. (General Fund - State)

Legal Services

CTS Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges for Microsoft 365 G5 licenses contracted for state agencies by the Consolidated Technology Services agency. This contract allows the state to achieve economies of scale and administrative efficiencies in the management of licenses. (General Fund - State)

DES Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges from the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) for campus rent, utilities, parking, and contracts; capital project surcharges; financing cost recovery; public and historic facilities; real estate services; risk management services; personnel service rates; the Perry Street child care center; small agency services; and the department’s enterprise applications.
