"D. The Information Technology Investment Board, in addition to the responsibilities as set forth in the 9th Enactment Clause of Chapter 981 of the Acts of Assembly of 2003, shall have the authority to postpone the implementation schedule of any state agency by a vote of the majority of members.  The members may consider the following reasons for postponement:  security and sensitivity of information, adverse economic effects on participants’ benefits, unusual effects on the impacted agency’s budget, or other matters that could adversely effect the Commonwealth’s operations in the opinion of the Chief Information Officer."

(This amendment authorizes the Information Technology Investment Board to delay the consolidation of any agency into the Virginia Information Technologies Agency. This language clarifies that along with its authority to speed up implementation, the Board also has the authority to delay consolidation of specific agencies.)
