Issue:            TRANSFER FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTION TO OFFICE OF THE STATE CHIEF INFORMATION OFFICER - ADD

Justification
Governor's Recommendations 2020-21
The Governor's Budget Recommendation for Fiscal Year 2020-21 includes a transfer of three positions, $247,015 in budget authority ($246,028 in Salaries and Benefits and $987 in HR Services) and the associated salary rate of 184,565, from the Executive Direction and Support Services budget entity within the Administrative Trust Fund to the Office of the State Chief Information Officer budget entity within the Working Capital Trust Fund. This transfer will better align the roles and responsibilities of the positions with the division served. The three positions are the billing section for the State Data Center and solely serve to bill customers of the State Data Center. Housing the positions within the Office of the State Chief Information Officer is more appropriate as the functions of the Executive Direction and Support Services budget entity are used for administrative services. This issue nets to zero with 2008720. This issue was included in the department's Legislative Budget Request.
