1 Energy Saved/Created represents actual and estimated amounts. Budget Activity: A180 ARRA SEP (Energy Efficiency / Renewable Energy Loan & Grant Program) Purpose: Provides interim financing to renewable energy projects, to assist innovative companies that have commercial or near commercial energy technologies, and to support cost-effective energy efficiency projects. Priority of Government: Improve the quality of Washington's natural resources Agency Priority: Sector Focus and Competitiveness Analysis: Jobs reported this quarter (April thru June 2012): FTE Each recipient is being monitored (onsite and desk). All projects are on track to complete within the funding window. We have received an extension from US DOE to September Budget spent reflects total grants and loans paid out. Energy savings are calculated at contract closure and, therefore, are lower than originally projected. A risk assessment tracking system is in place as part of monitoring.

8 Budget Activity: A182 Municipal Research Services (MRSC) Purpose: Build community capacity by providing local government officials with research, information and advice Priority of Government: Strengthen government's ability to achieve results efficiently and effectively Agency Priority: Efficient and Effective Regulation and Rural Focus Background: The MRSC is a nonprofit agency that provides local government officials with research, information and advice through a contract with the state pursuant to RCW MRSC’s consolidated services reduce local staffing needs and are particularly critical for smaller jurisdictions, providing affordable and timely expertise on a wide range of issues. Analysis: Inquiry volume is returning to pre-recession levels (next slide), however MRSC website usage is not growing as projected. MRSC indicates that upgrades are needed to improve website performance and have put forward a decision package to request funding. MRSC has responded to requests for other services by expanding offerings such as trainings and webinars, which have been well received by local governments. MRSC is beginning a strategic planning process, which will likely result in new performance measures for FY 14. The Legislature adopted HB 2823, changing the MRSC’s funding source from the city and county research accounts to the liquor revolving fund. In the course of this change, some FY 12 funding was inadvertently swept. This issue can be addressed through the supplemental budget.

10 Budget Activity: Innovation and Policy Priorities – Local Government Fiscal Note (LGFN) Program Purpose: Perform analyses on legislation affecting local governments and prepare fiscal notes used in legislative deliberations Priority of Government: Strengthen government’s ability to achieve results efficiently and effectively Agency Priority: Supports all agency priorities Analysis: The average working days per note request dropped to 4.28 from 4.35 in Notes are expected within five days of assignment from the Office of Financial Management; our average turnaround time has been less than five days every year since Despite extreme weather shutting down many agencies during the height of session, our timeliness rate improved to 83.3 percent from 80.6 percent in However, perceived timeliness in our annual customer satisfaction survey dropped. Customers may be more focused on fiscal note completion by legislative hearings rather than by the statutory deadline. A lower volume of notes likely helped our timeliness rate requests compared to 527 in the previous short session. However, we received an unusually large number of complex bills that significantly restructured the relationship between state and local governments. This year’s revision rate was 4.3% -- slightly less than 2011’s record- breaking 4.4%. The statewide average for 2012 is 12.3%. The low revision rate, which is one proxy for fiscal note quality, reflects the experience level of our seven staff, who entered this session with 24 sessions of local government fiscal note experience.
