Summary of Legislation

            This bill requires each principal executive state department to prepare a 20-year plan to identify each department's priorities, anticipated personnel and infrastructure needs, and services to be provided. Each department is to submit its plan to the Office of State Planning and Budgeting (OSPB) by July 1, 2000. The bill requires the OSPB to prepare a coordinated long-range plan and submit that plan to the General Assembly by January 15, 2001.

State Expenditures

            State General Fund expenditures for FY 1999-2000 and FY 2000-01 to support the provisions of this bill are based upon the following assumptions:


               that this bill does not apply to the Judicial Branch;

               that many, but not all, departments currently prepare three-year or five-year plans but the level of development of personnel projections, infrastructure requirements, and operating budget estimates for inclusion in these plans varies by department;

               that all departments will base their long-range plans on common assumptions and a common methodology;

               that the majority of each department's plan will be accomplished within existing resources by temporarily shifting resources from other departmental functions;

               that the Department of Revenue and Department of Local Affairs may be required to absorb additional costs related to providing demographic and/or tax revenue data to other departments;

               that OSPB will employ professional consulting services to compile a standardized state-wide plan;

               that the consultant will provide guidance, database development, and possibly software to assist all departments and OSPB;

               that the total cost of consultant services is estimated to be $175,000 (1,750 hours @ $100 per hour) for the duration of the contract in FY 1999-2000 and FY 2000-01; and

               that other unforeseen costs may be realized during the plan development process.

            OSPB anticipates the annual cost for contracted services will be $87,500 for FY 1999-2000 and $87,500 for FY 2000-01.

State Appropriations

            This fiscal note would imply the Office of the Governor will require a General Fund appropriation of $87,500 and 0.0 FTE for FY 1999-2000.
