Andrew M. Cuomo
Robert L. Megna
Director of the Budget
September 17, 2012Dear Agency Commissioners:Over the past 21 months and with your help, Governor Cuomo eliminated acumulative budget gap of $77 billion without raising taxes. He accomplished this bytaking a series of difficult but necessary actions that have kept spending growth understrict control while delivering the quality core services that New York’s citizens demand.The Governor is committed to keeping spending growth to two percent or less over thecourse of his Administration as we continue the difficult task of eliminating our remainingstructural deficit and providing the strong fiscal framework that will return New York toeconomic preeminence.Continuing efficiencies in government operations will be achieved throughongoing measures, originally recommended by the SAGE Commission, to streamlineand consolidate government operations through a range of Enterprise Shared Servicesinitiatives including the Business Services Center, strategic sourcing procurementreform, consolidation of information technology services, and the restacking of our realestate assets. Significant programmatic improvement will be accomplished throughinitiatives like the Justice Center, enacted this year, to implement uniform safeguards forpeople with special needs and to prosecute cases of abuse and neglect.As we begin the important work of developing the 2013-14 Executive Budget,Governor Cuomo remains committed to holding the line on State spending whilemaintaining his pledge to increase support for schools and health care in a sustainablemanner. Accordingly, your 2013-14 budget request for State Operations and Aid toLocalities (excluding School Aid and Medicaid, which are subject to different growthcaps) must assume zero growth from your 2012-13 cash ceiling for the 2013-14 and2014-15 fiscal years for both General Fund and State Operating funds spending. Inother words, 2013-14 budget requests cannot achieve zero growth through fiscalgimmicks or one-time actions. Funding requests for new initiatives must be offset bycorresponding reductions elsewhere in your budget. Maximization of your agency’s useof Enterprise Shared Services will assist in achieving this objective.We must approach next year’s Budget as we have the past two years: as ameans of achieving the Governor’s vision of making government work better for thepeople of this State. Agencies must work together across functional areas and adoptsmarter, more efficient practices to achieve their core missions. Your budget request
