OIT has incorporated a number of changes based the results, and now it is time to bring the information directly to departments.

OIT submitted the Common Policy Portfolio Request to OSPB on November 1, 2014. This request has made its way through the budget process although the JBC made several changes to FY16 Common Policy throughout the process. OIT has created a detailed spreadsheet to show the build up from what was requested, what changes the JBC made,and what the final appropriation reflects. Please note that this is not the final FY16 Billing Portfolio. OIT will calculate and publish each Department’s Annual Billing Portfolio after the conclusion of legislative session to include any special bill appropriations. FY16 Appropriated Payments to OIT.
