"M.1. The Department of Human Resource Management shall convene a workgroup to develop a methodology that can be used to determine (i) the amount of funding that should be appropriated for state employee salary increases each year and (ii) how to distribute that funding to address state agencies' most significant workforce challenges.

2. The methodology should be data-driven and include (i) recruitment and retention trends for each job role in the state workforce, (ii) how salaries and total compensation for each job role compare to similar jobs at other employers, (iii) the extent to which recruitment and retention challenges can be addressed by salary increases, and (iv) the impact of recruitment and retention challenges in each job role on state agency operations.

3. In developing the methodology, the workgroup shall incorporate data from the Personnel Management Information System, the Department of Human Resource Management's employee exit survey, and data from Occupationally Based Data Services.

4. The workgroup shall include representatives from the Department of Human Resource Management, the Department of Planning and Budget, House Appropriations Committee staff, Senate Finance Committee staff, and human resources staff from multiple state agencies.

5. The methodology developed by the workgroup shall be used to develop the biennial report required by House Bill 2055 of the 2019 General Assembly Session. Notwithstanding the provisions of House Bill 2055, the first biennial report using this methodology shall be due by December 1, 2019."
