"G. The Director, Department of Planning and Budget, shall withhold and transfer to this item, amounts estimated at $13,033,020 the first year and $13,033,020 the second year from the general fund appropriations of state agencies representing savings from administrative efficiencies.  These savings shall be implemented as an across-the –board reduction based upon general fund salaries in Executive Department agencies. Agencies shall be encouraged to maximize savings that can be realized through the electronic distribution of information, through email or internet, in place of printed materials.  The Secretary of Finance shall establish the procedures to be used in determining the amounts to be reverted from impacted agencies."

(This amendment would require agencies to implement administrative efficiencies in order to produce additional savings. The estimated savings are based upon the general fund salary base in executive branch agencies. The required savings can be achieved by agencies using any efficiency-driven methodology including efforts to maximize the use of electronic distribution of information in place of printed materials; however, it is anticipated that most agencies will achieve these savings from strategic management of agency turnover and vacancy. The amounts to be reverted represent slightly less than one percent of the total general fund salary base statewide.)
