DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDATION AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

 

 

 

 

 

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 99.8% of the existing operating budget. It represents 84.9% of the total request ($33,133,787) for this program. Most of the difference between the existing operating budget and the amount recommended is accounted for by the non-recurring $458,718 of federal funds carried forward from FY 1997-1998 for acquisitions and major repairs. Full funding has been provided for salaries, forty-one (41) vacant positions have been eliminated, and additional interagency transfer means of financing has been added in order to provide the necessary funding adjustments needed in the salaries and related benefits categories. All positions authorizations remaining after the position reductions specified above for this and the other HCSD hospitals have been combined in the Administration program to provide additional management flexibility in determining individual hospital manpower needs.

The Total Recommended amount above includes $19,456,256 of Supplementary Recommendations of which $0 is State General Fund for 70% of the budget of this program. Funding of this Supplementary Recommendation is dependent upon renewal of the current sales tax rate of 3% on the sales tax suspension of exemptions base.
