"It is the intent of the legislature that the Department of                                         
Administration, Office of the Governor, and other state agencies                                    
actively pursue implementation of the state procurement pilot program                               
authorized by ch. 51, SLA 2003 (HB 313, Twenty-Third Alaska State                                   
Legislature).  It is essential that state policy makers show strong                                 
leadership in reducing the cost of government at a time when the State                              
of Alaska is facing a fiscal gap.  The procurement pilot program                                    
provides an opportunity to address the fiscal condition of the state in a                           
way that does not reduce program delivery.  The procurement pilot                                   
program will reduce the costs associated with procurement and supply

chain management, which are significant areas of the state's                                        
administrative costs and represent an area of potentially substantial                               
cost savings in the future.  As a basic administrative function,                                    
procurement and supply management represent appropriate                                             
opportunities for achieving cost savings through the use of process                                 
management specialists from the private sector and, when combined                                   
with electronic commerce tools, offer opportunities to reduce the                                   
amount of back-office overhead resources required to requisition,                                   
procure, and otherwise administer the acquisition of goods and                                      
services, as well as to reduce the actual costs of goods and services.                              
Given the early indications of large potential cost savings to the state                            
from the procurement pilot program, the legislature encourages the                                  
executive branch to actively pursue full implementation authorized by                               
ch. 51, SLA 2003."

It is the intent of the legislature that the Department of Health and Social Services               
collaborate with the Alaska Court System and ASAP providers to devise a system                      
of centralized revenue collection from those persons assigned to ASAP screening                     
and evaluation as a condition of their sentence in DWI and alcohol and drug                         
related misdemeanors. The Department is directed to prepare a comprehensive                         
plan to address the deficiencies in the current ASAP system, including a cost-                      
benefit analysis of transitioning the Anchorage ASAP to a local nonprofit                           
provider, an evaluation of which agency should logically manage the program, and                    
a review of other states' ASAP programs. This report is to be provided to the                       
legislature by January 10, 2005.

It is the intent of the legislature that the Human Services Community Matching                      
Grant funding will be phased out in equal reductions over a period of three year                    
beginning in FY05. This phased reduction is to facilitate development of                            
community focused initiatives to supplant dependency upon direct State funding.                     
Community focused initiatives are most appropriate to direct specific resources to                  
particular community needs, complementing the concentration of State resources                      
on core public health and social services needs."
