The net increase in expenditure authority for this program is primarily due to risk management premiums increasing by $87,459 in interagency transfer means of financing. Interagency transfer means of financing also increased by $14,352 to reflect an increase in the expected number of retirees. Full funding has been provided for all 50 recommended positions.
