Page 596, after line 51, insert:
"2. The Department of Information Technology has entered into a state government-wide contract for the provision of computer services at each state employee's desk or seat through a private sector contract for seat management services.  Under the seat management contract, the customer agency pays one fixed fee for all desktop or laptop personal computing services including hardware, software, maintenance, and help desk.  Other benefits include a reduction in the total cost of ownership, standardization, enhancement of productivity, elimination of obsolescence, accurate asset management, and a single source of accountability.  All Executive Branch agencies and institutions of higher education are directed to implement seat management and take advantage of these benefits unless Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) studies show such alternative is not cost effective."
