(This amendment eliminates the proposed transfer of information technology procurement functions from VITA to the Department of General Services as contained in the Governor's introduced budget. While the description provided by the administration for this transfer states that it will allow for the consolidation of common business practices, it could actually increase the time required to approve projects and procurements due to the need for the Department of General Services to now integrate procurements into the project, approval, and security oversight requirements for information technology projects. The transfer may also interfere with the contractual responsibility the Commonwealth has to use Northrop Grumman as state government's primary infrastructure services provider.)
