SB 14 - Fiscal Note 2
This legislation establishes a temporary and voluntary retirement incentive program (RIP) for public employers including
state agencies. The legislation requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) review each RIP proposed by a state
agency and determine whether the program will result in a net reduction to the operating costs of the agency for fiscal
years 2024 through 2028. The Office of Management and Budget will report these findings to the Commissioner of the
Department of Administration before a state agency RIP is approved.
The OMB does not currently have the in‐house expertise to evaluate RIPs and will hire a qualified contractor to evaluate
the net impact of the proposed programs to each agency's budget. Each evaluation is expected to cost $5.0, and there are
a 16 executive branch agencies plus the legislature. If all agencies, including the legislature, propose a RIP, the total cost
would be $85.0 unrestricted general funds. Because other small public employers may elect to partner with OMB and
utilize the same contract to evaluate the efficacy of a RIP, the cost estimate includes contracting services for an additional
$25.0 that would be funded by the respective public employer (statutory designated program receipts fund source). This
estimate is variable and depends on the established contract and number of other public employers who elect to partner
with OMB for RIP assessments. This fiscal note assumes that all RIPs are established and evaluated in fiscal year 2024.
This legislation also requires OMB submit an annual report to the legislature on the RIPs established by all public
employers under this legislation. The report must include, for each program,
(1) the designated employee categories;
(2) the employer's cost for each participant;
(3) the actual annual cost to the state;
(4) for state agencies, the budgeted annual cost;
(5) the cost paid by each participant;
(6) the number of positions that became vacant as a result of the program and how many of those
positions remain vacant;
(7) for the relevant three‐year period, the projected net savings and the actual net savings resulting for
the program.
The first report will be due January 15, 2024. The workload resulting from this new reporting requirement is anticipated to
be absorbed by existing staff.
