Item 434 #2h

Item 434 #2h

Virginia Information Technologies Agency

Page 472, line 33, strike "F" and insert "H".
Page 472, after line 38, insert:
"I. The Information Technology Investment Board shall work to close any projected differences between budgeted funds and projected costs by reducing costs within affected agencies for decentralized services through changes in transformation planning, applications services, and information technology contractor support.  The Information Technology Investment Board shall report to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees on their efforts by October 1, 2009."

(This amendment affects language changes requiring the Information Technologies Investment Board to find ways to reduce information technology costs in fiscal year 2010, whether through negotiations with Northrop Grumman, working with agencies, or internal changes within the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA). Currently, there is gap between information technology funding and the rates VITA has set to satisfy the Northrop Grumman infrastructure contract.)
