WVC 5 - 1 D- ARTICLE 1D. GOVERNOR'S OFFICE OF FISCAL RISK ANALYSIS AND MANAGEMENT.

WVC 5 - 1 D- 1 §5-1D-1. Findings and purposes.
The Legislature finds and declares that fiscal risk analysis and management is essential to finding practical solutions to the everyday problems of government and that the management goals and purposes of government would be furthered by the development of a consistent set of fiscal risk analysis and management principles. Therefore, it is the purpose of this article to create, as an integral part of the office of the governor, the office of fiscal risk analysis and management, with the authority to advise and make recommendations to all state spending units on fiscal risk analysis and management functions and decisions with potential long term fiscal impact of an amount of at least one million dollars: Provided, That the authority shall advise and make recommendations to the public employees insurance agency, the consolidated public retirement board, workers' compensation and the board of risk and insurance management on fiscal risk analysis and management functions and decisions with potential long term fiscal impact of any increases of program costs in excess of five percent.

As used in this article:

(a) "Chief risk officer" means the person appointed to the position created in section three of this article and who is vested with authority to assist state spending units in planning and coordinating fiscal risk analysis and management activities that serve the effectiveness and efficiency of the individual state spending units, state executive agencies and further the overall management goals and purposes of government.

(b) "Fiscal risk analysis and management" means issues that arise out of the day-to-day operations of state government that put at fiscal risk the people, property or other assets of the state, the overall operation of state government and its ability to carry and acceptance of fiscal risks on decisions with potential fiscal impact of an amount of at least one million dollars: Provided, That the authority shall advise and make recommendations to the public employees insurance agency, the consolidated public retirement board, workers' compensation and the board of risk and insurance management on fiscal risk analysis and management functions and decisions with potential long term fiscal impact of any increases of program costs in excess of five percent.

(c) "Fiscal impact" means any anticipated budgetary or other financial impact that may result from the proposed expenditure, decision, or undertaking.
