received
a
call
from
Mike
Novakowski
(and
George
Westervelt)
from
the
Division
ofthe
Budget
with
a
request.
He
explainedthatLarry
Schwartz
andthe
Governor
want
to
create
a
specialunit
in
the
State
Inspector’s
GeneralOffice
to
focus
on
preventingfraud,
waste
and
abuse
in
state
government
(agencies
and
authorities),
buttheywant
to
keepthe
unit
positions/funding
offStateBudget.
So
they
are
askingvarious
publicauthoritiesforassistance
in
funding
certainpositions
for
theunitoneach
authority’s
payroll.We
are
beingasked
to
support
3
positions
(didn’t
tell
me
howmany
in
total
and
whatourshare
is).No
information
on
salary
leveland
therefore
what
the
cost
would
be.
Theyaskedwhat
the
processwould
beand
whether
we
see
any
limitations.
He
saidTomCongdon
is
aware
of
the
request.
 
respondedthat
 
would
discuss
withyou
andget
back
to
them
(he
saidresponse
in
next
couple
of
dayswould
be
helpful).
 
remindedthem
that
we
already
fund
5
positionsfor
the
Governor’s
Energy
and
Policy
on
payroll
 I
forgot
to
also
add
recentposition
for
FellowforCounsel’sOffice).
 
explainedthataddingadditionalpositions
withoutfunding
will
createfiscal
challengesfor
us.
 
explained
that,
if
we
proceed,
thesepositions
would
likely
be
funded
in
thesame
manner
as
other
administrative
support
positions,with
the
salary
and
fringe
benefit
costsallocated
across
all
programs
(in
proportion
to
direct
programstaffcosts),
withthe
bulk
of
thecost
being
allocated
to
the
clean
energy
programs
(EEPS,RPS,
T MD)
 
further
dilutingour
approved
program

programs.
 
explained
thatthese
budgets
are
alreadyconstrained,
and
that
we
alsoareneeding
to
address
a
number
of
uncertainties
forresources
in
the
context
of

and
