"C.  The Virginia Information Technologies Agency, in consultation with the state agencies that rely upon the products of the Virginia Base Mapping Program (VBMP), shall develop an internal service fund providing for an equitable rate structure supporting updates to the Commonwealth’s base map and digital centerline files, the updates to which are to be undertaken every four years, beginning with the next scheduled update in fiscal year 2010.  The Virginia Information Technologies Agency shall report on the development of this internal service fund rate structure and the agency’s plans to fully fund the acquisition of all work products directly related to digital orthophotography to the Governor, the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees, and the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission by October 1, 2006.  It is the intent of the General Assembly that the new internal service fund be effective by July 1, 2008."

(This amendment provides authorization for the Virginia Information Technologies Agency to develop an internal service fund to finance future updates to the Virginia digital base map and centerline files used for the provision of E-911 services, state and local economic development efforts, state and local emergency management planning, and other services. The internal service fund is to be developed by VITA in consultation with the state agencies that rely on these digital orthophotographic files. Prior to the internal service fund's operation, the agency must report on the development of the internal service fund as well as its plans to acquire the needed work products and files.)
