DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 98.8% of the existing operating budget. It represents 87.6% of the total request ($1,362,420) for this program. The changes are partly due to an increase in risk management premiums, a decrease in funding for acquisitions and major repairs and an increase in salaries due to a technical adjustment to provide sufficient funding of salaries in this program. The remaining difference is due to statewide adjustments.

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

This program does not have funding for Professional Services for Fiscal Year 1999-2000.
