BY STATE AFFAIRS COMMITTEE
1 A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
2 STATING LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND DIRECTING THE DIRECTOR OF THE DEPARTMENT OF
3 ADMINISTRATION TO PROVIDE THE LEGISLATURE A REPORT OF ALL STATE BUILDING
4 FACILITY LEASES AND RECOMMENDATIONS REGARDING THOSE LEASES.
5 Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
6 WHEREAS, Section 67-5708A, Idaho Code, requires all state agencies to per-
7 form a comprehensive analysis of their building facility lease(s) and evaluate
8 all viable alternatives to meet long-term facility needs including acquiring
9 facilities with appropriated funds and leasing facilities from the state
10 building authority; and
11 WHEREAS, agencies, with assistance from the Director of the Department of
12 Administration, are required to select the lease or purchase alternative that
13 provides suitable facilities at the lowest responsible cost to the taxpayer,
14 including residual value; and
15 WHEREAS, the Legislature desires the Director of the Department of Admin-
16 istration to annually provide a report on building facility leases, the course
17 of action on each lease recommended, the timeline in which the recommended
18 action is to be taken and the estimated long-term savings of taxpayer dollars
19 expected, measured in both historical and present value dollars; and
20 WHEREAS, the Legislature desires the Legislative Services Office to inde-
21 pendently review the purchase or lease alternatives recommended by the Direc-
22 tor of the Department of Administration; and
23 WHEREAS, to the extent the recommended course of action is to lease from
24 the Idaho State Building Authority, a Concurrent Resolution is required.
25 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the Second Regular Ses-
26 sion of the Fifty-fifth Idaho Legislature, the Senate and the House of Repre-
27 sentatives concurring therein, that the Director of the Department of Adminis-
28 tration shall provide to the First Regular Session of the Fifty-sixth Idaho
29 Legislature and annually thereafter a report of all state building facility
30 leases. The report shall include the course of action and timeline recommended
31 for each lease that will provide the lowest responsible cost to the taxpayer,
32 including residual value, measured over the time the facilities are expected
33 to be needed. If the recommended course of action is to lease from the Idaho
34 State Building Authority, the report shall provide a suggested Concurrent Res-
35 olution for each facility or appropriate combination of facilities recom-
37 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Legislative Services Office shall indepen-
38 dently review all leases recommended by the Director of the Department of
39 Administration as described in Section 67-5708A, Idaho Code. For all leases
40 not recommended, the Legislative Services Office shall establish a plan to
41 review and make periodic reports regarding such leases by July 1, 2002.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This concurrent resolution is a key "next step" in improving
the state's management of its building facilities as required
under Section 67-5708A, Idaho code.
This resolution directs the Director of the Department of
Administration to provide the 2001 legislature with a report
of all state building leases. The report will include the
course of action and time line recommended for each lease
or group of leases that will provide the lowest responsible
cost to the taxpayer, including residual value, measured
over the time the facilities are expected to be needed.
If the recommendation is to lease from the State Building
Authority, the Director shall provide a suggested concurrent
resolution for legislative approval.
This resolution also directs the Legislative Services Office
to independently review and report on the recommendations of
the Director and, over the next twenty seven months as part of
its routine audit of agencies, review all other state leases
and report to the legislature.
No negative fiscal impact. The scope of work contemplated by
this concurrent resolution will be preformed with existing
staff and resources.
There will be a huge positive fiscal impact resulting from
this work as the state's facility management plan focuses on
building occupancy cost options and alternatives. Particularly
from the standpoint of choosing the alternative or option
that provides the least responsible cost to the taxpayer,
including residual values, measured over the time the building
facility is expected to be needed.
