Justification
Governor's Recommendations 2022-23
The Governor's Budget Recommendation for Fiscal Year 2022-23 includes $830,456 recurring Operating Trust Fund budget authority to transfer administrative staff from the Judges of Compensation Claims budget entity to the Adjudication of Disputes budget entity. This issue is a re-approval of current year budget amendments EOG# B0144 and P0023. This issue replaces the current administrative system that internally allocates costs - position by position. The nonoperating transfer from the Workers' Compensation Appeals program to the Adjudication of Disputes program will increase in order to cover 68% of the cost of administrative services. This 68%/32% of allocation is based on each program's portion of the Division of Administrative Hearing's budget, therefore, DOAH has amended its administrative alignment. All administrative support for both program entities are now housed within the Adjudication of Disputes budget entity and not divided between 2 programs. Agency transfers into the Division are not implicated by this internal improvement and there is no fiscal impact. This issue nets to zero with issue code 1600A30. This issue was included in the Division's Legislative Budget Request.
