WSR 11-23-093



[ Filed November 17, 2011, 2:30 p.m. ]

During the 2011 legislative special session, the legislature passed, and the governor signed, ESSB 5931, consolidating and creating central service agencies. As part of that legislation, the department of enterprise services (DES) was created. This new agency consists of the department of general administration (GA), the state printer, and parts of the department of information services (DIS), department of personnel (DOP) and office of financial management (OFM). As part of the legislation, the rules for the affected agencies are transferred to DES, along with future rule-making authority.

Currently, GA enacted rules are in TITLE 236 WAC. Except for the public records chapter (chapter 236-56 WAC), all GA rules will be transferred to DES. DES will begin the rule-making process to repeal chapter 236-56 WAC and enact a new public disclosure chapter in TITLE 200 WAC for the new agency. In addition, five DOP enacted rules in TITLE 357 WAC and three OFM enacted chapters in TITLE 82 WAC will be transferred to DES.

Based on the above-referenced legislation, I request the code reviser's office decodify the GA, DOP and OFM rules listed below and recodify these rules as DES rules under the chapter/sections listed in TITLE 200 WAC, as shown below.
