11:10 AM -- HB16-1281
Senator Tate, prime sponsor, presented House Bill 16-1281, which modifies the implementation of the state's twice monthly payroll system authorized through House Bill 15-1392. The bill allows the State Personnel Director within the Department of Personnel and Administration (DPA) to determine when to begin paying salaries twice a month, if it is determined that it is necessary to delay until after July 1, 2017, due to the implementation of the Human Resources Information System (HRIS). Additionally, the bill eliminates one of the options an employee may use to repay a one-time loan authorized through HB 15-1392.
11:12 AM -- Mr. Bob Jaros, State Controller, representing the Department of Personnel and Administration, testified in support of the bill. Mr. Jaros responded to questions about the request for proposals recently issued for the HRIS project. Discussion ensued about the HRIS project budget.
The bill was laid over until a later date.
The committee adjourned.
