Capitol Buildings Salaries and Expenses Capital Budget Projects Funded in the Base

Fiscal Year 2001 Budget Estimate

$800,000 of which $670,000 is for the roof itself, $100,000 for gutters and $30,000 for a new exhaust system for the emergency diesel generator. The work will be performed by in-house labor supplemented by temporary labor over a period of 5 years starting with the most critical areas first. Funds were provided in fiscal year 1999 for the first increment of this program. It is planned to leave the $160,000 in the base through fiscal year 2003.

Implementation of AOCNET

Increase Requested:

Category:

Technology / Management Systems

$700,000 $450,000 Priority: 1-B

In 1991 the Architect of the Capitol's 5-year Information Resources Management (IRM) plan called for improving agency-wide information systems and implementing an agency-wide communications network called AOCNET. Specifically the plan called for the review of all agency legacy systems and AOC-wide data sharing via AOCNET. In fiscal year 1996 funds were requested and appropriated to begin this process. IRM is overseeing the re-engineering all legacy information systems. IRM also plans to complete the implementation of AOCNET and improve current connections in previously wired buildings to improve durability, capability, and performance. Funding is requested on a "No Year" bases.

Funding is requested in fiscal year 2001 to purchase communications hardware as described below. The request of $700,000 is an increase of $450,000 over fiscal year 2000.

Hardware will be purchased to provide high speed uplinks to workgroup switches throughout the complex. This equipment will also implement asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switching for wide area communications to the Botanic Garden, Fort Meade, P Street, D.C. Village, Agency Internet access and for video conferencing. The upgrade to highspeed workgroup switches will provide the network speed to the desktop with the addition of any new application or network service ($450,000). ATM for the wide area network and selective ATM to the desktop for video conferencing rooms or workstations will provide wide area network access to remote AOC sites, allowing access to network services at the same rate as LAN computers ($200,000). ATM access to the Internet will be provided by hardware and installation for a redundant, high speed network connection to the Internet. The Internet will grow in use and functionality as E-Commerce

Major network upgrades are required because the life cycle of network communications equipment tend to advance in three year

This technology will be replaced with equipment that will meet or exceed 10 times the current transmit speed or 10,000,000,000 bits per seconds. The speed at which equipment transmits is called bandwidth. As new applications are added to the network, additional bandwidth is required. At the rate the AOC deploys new applications we will need a major upgrade in fiscal year 2003 which is estimated to costs $1,000,000. Continued expansion during the interim years is anticipated and is estimated to cost approximately $200,000 per year.

Financial Management System (FMS) Increase Requested: Category:

Technology - Management Systems

$1,475,000

becicy pe$975,000

Priority: 1-A

The Financial Management System (FMS) project is an effort to acquire and implement a financial system that is compliant with the Joint Financial Management Improvement Program (JFMIP) standards. During fiscal year 1999, the system requirements were documented and refined, the support requirements were determined and a project team was organized. A steering committee was organized and an alternatives analysis was prepared evaluating the many alternatives for implementing a new financial management system. It was concluded that the AOC should implement American Management System's Momentum financial management product through a crossservicing agreement with the Department of Interior (DOI). Cross-servicing significantly reduces the cost and risk of implementing new financial systems. Another reason for cross-servicing a product is because the new system may serve as an interim financial system for the AOC. The Legislative Branch Financial Managers Council (LBFMC) is pursuing a long-term initiative to have all Legislative Branch agencies eventually implement the same financial management software. The AOC will use the AMS-Momentum software to perform core financial management activities until a new common system is procured and made available.

Fiscal Year 2001 Budget Estimate

The FMS system will be performed in four phases. Phase 1, which is currently funded will implement the General Ledger module.

"No Year" funding in the amount of $1,475,000 is requested in fiscal year 2001 for Phase 2 implementation. This will include Budget Execution, Purchasing, Accounts Payable, Disbursements and Accounts Receivable modules. Phase 3 (FY 2002 projected funding $1,475,000) will implement the Itemized Purchasing module. Phase 4 (FY 2003 projected funding $650,000) will implement the Fixed Assets module.

Estimates include initial software license fees, initial cross-servicing hardware fees, and contractor implementation support fees. The estimates are based on estimates from the Department of Interior (DOI) (cross-servicing agency). The DOI estimates were compared to in-house developed estimates and determined to be reasonable and accurate for the software fees and support required to implement the Momentum software.

The above estimates does not include implementation of an Inventory module or a Contracting Procurement module. The costs for implementing these modules may be added to a future funding request. At this point, these modules are expected to be implemented implementation of a new common Legislative Branch system in the future. The costs for integrating FMS with the Facilities Management System (CAFM) are not included. The cost for the FMS/CAFM integration may be included in a future funding request, once the integration requirements have been determined and refined. Also not included in the estimates are the recurring operational costs such as software license maintenance fees, cross-servicing hardware fees, and contractor technical and functional production support. The recurring costs will be included in the Annual Operating Budget request.
