Reductions to Baseline Request The Governor's Office of Budget, Planning & Policy and the Legislative Budget Board instructed each state agency to limit its 2006-2007 baseline request for general revenue-related funds to 95 percent of the sum of amounts expended in fiscal year 2004 and budgeted in fiscal year 2005. Under these instructions, the baseline request for fiscal year 2006 and 2007 for the Department of State Health Services must be $107.5 million less than its 2004-2005 spending levels.
Reductions to Baseline Request – Guiding Principles The following options are being considered to achieve the reductions to the baseline request: Maximize the potential savings of DSHS consolidation Maximize the use of federal funds Minimize impact to services
Options for Consideration for Exceptional Items – LAR 2006-07 2006-2007 funding requests for amounts that exceed 95 percent of the baseline spending level may be submitted as Exceptional Items. DSHS program staff have developed options for consideration for Exceptional Items [See ATTACHMENT B] in the following categories: –Restoration –Prevention –Infrastructure –Expansion
