Our progress toward implementation of HB2140 has not been accomplished alone.
A new name will unite the five agencies internally as well as announce our purpose externally.
The newly consolidated Office of Enterprise and Management Services will work toward the goals of capitalizing on available resources, continuing to seek cost saving opportunities and elevating our level of service.

It projects the consolidated agency’s broader focus of administering the organization as entrepreneurially as possible where appropriate while retaining our determination to comply with the laws and regulations that govern our missions.
An annual savings of $6.5 million is estimated for 2013.

Another way we will flatten our operational structure will be to share services between the consolidating agencies.
One of the directives in the bill was to demonstrate a savings of 15 percent of 2012 appropriations to the four consolidating agencies, setting a target of approximately .1 million in savings.
