Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact



                          STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

                                 RS 17374

The Idaho Career Information System has operated continuously under 
Executive Orders since 1980 as a cooperative venture between the Idaho 
Department of Commerce, the Idaho Department of Labor, the Idaho State 
Board of Education, the Idaho Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, 
the Office of the Governor, and the Division of Professional-Technical 
Education. The purpose of the Idaho Career Information System is to 
provide current and accurate occupational, educational and related 
career information to help Idaho citizens understand the link between 
educational preparation and work, explore education and career 
alternatives, and successfully seek work. The primary subscribers of 
the products and services provided by the Idaho Career Information 
System include 93% of secondary schools, colleges, universities, Idaho 
Department of Labor local offices, Vocational Rehabilitation local 
offices, and correctional facilities.

This legislation establishes the Idaho Career Information System 
within the Idaho Department of Labor because the services and products 
provided by the Idaho Career Information System are critical 
components of the Departmentís employment service and its workforce 
development programs. Having the Idaho Career Information System 
administered by the Department will create efficiencies and reduce the 
systemís costs because the Department will update the Idaho Career 
Information Systemís computer technology and improve its access to 
information available through the Departmentís Research and Analysis 
Bureau. Locating the Idaho Career Information System within the 
Department of Labor will allow the Department to promote the system 
through Department initiatives, thereby providing better public access 
to career related information at the Departmentís 24 statewide local 
offices.


                               FISCAL NOTE

The Idaho Career Information System is included in the appropriated 
budget for the Division of Professional-Technical Education for State 
Fiscal Year 2008. The enactment of this legislation will have a 
positive fiscal impact of $213,900 on the State General Fund. The 
Idaho Career Information System will be funded by moneys generated by 
the Idaho Career Information System and, if necessary, by the 
Departmentís Special Administration Fund, Section 72-1347A, Idaho 
Code.
