|Statement of Purpose|
This is the Fiscal Year 2001 appropriation for the State Controller.
No Bill Type Selected
This appropriation funds six program enhancement requests. The first provides funding for a new position in the Division of Statewide Payroll. The second provides $60,000 for above-CEC pay increases for employees of the Division of Statewide Payroll. The third funds a new position and provides consultant contracting funds for the Division of Statewide Accounting. This will help the State Controller implement the new reporting model developed by the Government Accounting Standards Board. This project will cost an additional $200,000 in FY 2002. The fourth and fifth enhancements provide additional operating funds for the Divisions of Statewide Payroll and Statewide Accounting. These increases are being driven by the proposed 20% rate increase for programming service fees that the State Controller’s Computer Center charges state agencies, including the other divisions within the State Controller’s Office. The sixth enhancement provides $100,000 to begin upgrading the Statewide Payroll to an online system. This project will cost an additional $1,540,000 in FY 2002 and FY 2003. This appropriation bill removes standard classification control from this budget by granting these funds as a lump sum appropriation. The bill also grants the State Controller the ability to carry forward unspent funds from the current fiscal year.
