Capitol Buildings Salaries and Expenses

Fiscal Year 2001 Budget Estimate

OPERATING BUDGET

In fiscal year 2001 the budget request for the Architect of the Capitol is presented again as an Operating Budget and a Capital
Budget. The Operating Budget for this appropriation is comprised of all costs associated with the daily care, maintenance and operation
of the facilities and activities under the jurisdiction of the Architect of the Capitol. The budget justification for the Operating Budget
includes a summary schedule explanatory statement and the associated schedule, followed by the Operating Allotment narratives. The
narratives describe the purpose of all operating allotments funded in this appropriation. When changes have been requested for fiscal year
2001, the amount and justification for those changes appear in italics.

For the fiscal year 2001 budget justifications, detailed narrative descriptions and other information are provided for all annual
operating budget allotments. This narrative is supported by a table that includes the following data: the allotment code number (Object
Code), allotment title (Item), and the last funding level before that allotment was increased or decreased to the fiscal year 1999 level
(Allotment before FY 99). A two-column designation follows that indicates in the first column a letter code whether that amount was
initiated (I), the year changed to the fiscal year 1999 level (C), has been continued at that base amount since 1991 (B), or a reorganization
of funding allotments has taken place (R). The second column will indicate for those allotments that have changed before fiscal year 1999
the year of that change. The next several columns will indicate funding levels for fiscal years 1999, 2000 and 2001, as well as the
obligations for fiscal year 1999. In accordance with sound financial management practice, these allotments are reviewed and adjusted to
reflect changing needs. Increases that cannot be absorbed from other operating areas are requested through the budget process.

This allotment provides for salaries and wages paid directly to employees including paid leave and lump sum annual leave payments
upon separation. This allotment also provides for compensation above basic rates including overtime, holiday pay, Sunday pay, night work
differential, supervisory differential, and hazardous duty pay. The increase consists of cost of living adjustments (COLA's) for fiscal year
2001 including the annualization of the January, 2000 COLA for general schedule employees; the COLA for general schedule employees
in January, 2001; and the October, 2000 COLA for wage-board employees; and within-grade increases and other pay adjustments.
Increase Requested, New Positions (21):

$1,172,000
Over the past seven years, the Architect's Office has realized an agency-wide reduction in staffing in actual FTE's of nearly 23
percent. In part, this reduction was in response to the mandated legislative branch-wide reductions in staffing, as well as an internal effort
to trim costs and manage staff more effectively. This agency has been in transition over the past few years. As a result of the additional
staffing reductions, coupled with increased requirements to comply with life and safety issues and an effort to catch up on deferred
maintenance and projects, staffing levels have now reached a critical level. In addition to specific needs on the Superintendent's staffs,
the workload for central staff has increased dramatically. Most significantly, these requirements are realized in the areas of Life and
Safety, Engineering and Architecture.

The following positions have been identified as most crucial to the operations of the Architect's Office: 13 positions for the Life
Safety Program Division including 5 Safety Specialists (Program/Policy) ($223,000) and 8 Program Development Engineers ($510,000).
Four additional positions are also required in the Engineering Division (225,000); 2 in the Office of the Assistant Architect ($107,000);
and 2 in the Architecture Division ($107,000).
