(This amendment eliminates the absorbtion of ongoing reduction included in the Governor's introduced budget of $1.3 million for VITA. In the current fiscal year, VITA reduced its administrative costs by $1.3 million as a one-time action to provide rebates to state agencies and assist them with their budget reduction needs. The expectation contained in the Governor's introduced budget is that VITA can and will offer similar rebates to those employed in the current year even though those rebates were tendered as a good faith effort to contribute to state budget cost-cutting efforts above and beyond VITA's 5 percent budget reduction. The Governor's introduced budget would essentially require VITA to overcharge state agencies in order to rebate the required savings.)
