SB664 by Gallegos (Relating to the establishment and operation of a public building mapping information system by the Texas Facilities Commission.), As Introduced
|Fiscal Year||Probable Net Positive/(Negative) Impact to General Revenue Related Funds|
|Fiscal Year||Probable Savings/(Cost) from
General Revenue Fund
|Change in Number of State Employees from FY 2009|
The bill states that the Facilities Commission would implement the program if federal funds are available. However for the purposes of the fiscal note, it is assumed that the funds would not be available and costs would be paid out of the General Revenue Fund.
The agency would have to hire staff to coordinate the federal grant applications, as well as develop and operate the statewide public building mapping information system. The agency would require five full-time equivalents (FTEs) with these skills and qualifications, and one FTE for administrative assistance purposes. The FTEs would consist of one administrative assistant with an annual salary of $35,000, one grants coordinator with an annual salary of $56,000, two program specialists with annual salaries of $53,000 each, one Web administrator with an annual salary of $79,000, and one manager with an annual salary of $79,000. The total cost of these FTEs, including benefits, is estimated to be $456,424 in General Revenue funds annually to implement the provisions of this bill.
The costs for fiscal year 2010 include $39,000 in General Revenue funds for rent, travel and other operating expenses. In fiscal year 2011, these costs are estimated to be $34,300 in General Revenue.
