Virginia Information Technologies Agency

Page 303, following line 22, insert:
"H. The Chief Information Officer shall analyze and compare the costs of IT goods purchased through the Comprehensive Infrastructure Agreement to costs the Commonwealth would otherwise pay if comparable IT goods were purchased directly by VITA, excluding any goods for which there is an existing internal service fund rate approved by the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, or an approved contractual resource unit.  In addition, this analysis shall focus on the status of any outstanding deliverables under the Comprehensive Infrastructure Agreement; including but not limited to the establishment of a service catalog.  The analysis shall include the cost of the goods plus all taxes, including sales and personal property taxes, and all applicable overhead rates.  If goods were purchased by VITA, identify all required changes to the contract, specific installation procedures and ongoing support requirements including any cost to be charged by the vendor for installation and support of goods purchased by the Commonwealth. VITA shall submit a report of this analysis and comparison to the Chairmen of the Senate Committees on Finance and General Laws and Technology and the House Committees on Appropriations and Science and Technology by December 31, 2010."

(This amendment directs VITA to report to the Senate and House technology and budget committees on an analysis of potential efficiencies or improvements to the procurement of IT goods that are not specifically covered under the Comprehensive Infrastructure Agreement.)
