Article 3. Virginia Technology Infrastructure Fund.

§ 2.2-2022. Definitions; purpose.

A. As used in this article, unless the context requires a different meaning:

"Costs" means the reasonable and customary charges for goods and services incurred or to be incurred in major information technology projects.

"Technology infrastructure" means telecommunications, automated data processing, word processing and management information systems, and related information, equipment, goods and services.

B. In order for the Commonwealth to take advantage of technological applications in providing services and solving problems of Virginia's citizens, there is a need to reinvest savings that accrue from increased usage of technology into new and emerging technologies that will provide for both greater efficiencies and better responsiveness. The purpose of this article is to create the Virginia Technology Infrastructure Fund (the Fund). The Fund shall make moneys available to state agencies and institutions of higher education for major information technology projects.

§ 2.2-2023. Virginia Technology Infrastructure Fund created; contributions.

A. The Virginia Technology Infrastructure Fund (the Fund) is created in the state treasury. The Fund is to be used to fund major information technology projects or to pay private partners as authorized in subsection C of § 2.2-2007.

B. The Fund shall consist of: (i) the transfer of general and nongeneral fund appropriations from executive branch agencies which represent savings that accrue from reductions in the cost of information technology and communication services; (ii) the transfer of general and nongeneral fund appropriations from executive branch agencies which represent savings from the implementation of information technology enterprise projects; (iii) funds identified pursuant to subsection C of § 2.2-2007; (iv) such general and nongeneral fund fees or surcharges as may be assessed to executive branch agencies for enterprise technology projects; (v) gifts, grants, or donations from public or private sources; and (vi) such other funds as may be appropriated by the General Assembly. Savings shall be as identified by the CIO through a methodology reviewed by the ITAC and approved by the Secretary of Finance. The Auditor of Public Accounts shall certify the amount of any savings identified by the CIO. For public institutions of higher education, however, savings shall consist only of that portion of total savings that represent general funds. The State Comptroller is authorized to transfer cash consistent with appropriation transfers. Appropriated funds from federal sources are exempted from transfer. Except for funds to pay private partners as authorized in subsection C of § 2.2-2007, moneys in the Fund shall only be expended as provided by the appropriation act.

Interest earned on the Fund shall be credited to the Fund. The Fund shall be permanent and nonreverting. Any unexpended balance in the Fund at the end of the biennium shall not be transferred to the general fund of the state treasury.

§ 2.2-2024. Annual plan; allowable uses of Fund.

The CIO shall prepare a plan that identifies the projects in which the Fund will participate. The plan shall be consistent with the statewide plan for information technology and shall consider the use of existing resources and long-term operation and maintenance costs. Projects having the greatest benefit to state government as a whole shall have the highest priority in the plan.
