Justification
Governor's Recommendations 2022-23
The Governor's Budget Recommendation for Fiscal Year 2022-23 includes $77,350 in nonrecurring State Risk Management Trust Fund authority to allow the Department of Financial Services to continue Planning, Accounting, and Ledger Management (PALM) transition projects within the Division of Risk Management. The Division of Risk Management maintains a contractual agreement with Origami Risk, LLC to provide for the annual operation and maintenance of an Insurance Management System (IMS) used to manage program claims. Currently, the IMS utilizes a Florida Accounting and Information Resource (FLAIR) interface that allows the Division to process claim payments directly through Central FLAIR. Before implementation of PALM, the Division will need additional spending authority to purchase any additional integration and support hours required to modify the current IMS interface from FLAIR to PALM. This issue was requested in the department's Legislative Budget Request.
