(This amendment provides $588,000 in nongeneral fund appropriation and 3.0 FTE positions the first year and $1,176,000 in nongeneral fund appropriation and 6.0 FTE positions the second year to strengthen information security staffing at the Virginia Information Technologies Agency (VITA). These positions are provided at the recommendation of the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, which directed VITA to submit a report by December 2021 stating the additional security positions needed to remain on the forefront of industry standards. This amendment addresses half of the position need presented by VITA. As these position costs are supported by rates paid by participating customer agencies, a companion amendment in Central Appropriations provides the estimated general fund impact of these additional staff.)
