WHEREAS, the State of Illinois is confronted with an unprecedented fiscal crisis;

    1. All agencies to which Executive Order 10 applies will report to GOMB the amount of reductions they have implemented or realized or which they will be able to implement or realize, on a quarterly basis, for the entirety of Fiscal Year 2011, in accordance with the provisions of this administrative order.
    2. On October 8, 2010, each agency shall report to GOMB the total amounts of spending reductions they realized in the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2011 (July 1, 2010 through September 30,2010), by reduction category. For purposes of this Administrative Order, "reductions" shall have the same meaning as provided in Executive Order 10.
    3. GOMB will make an intranetlSharePoint site available to all agency Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) on or before October 8 to serve as an interface into which all data required by this Administrative Order may be entered.
    4. For purposes of the reporting required in this Administrative Order, "reduction" is the amount of money equal to the difference between the amount appropriated within a reduction category for the reporting period and the amount spent within the reduction category for the reporting period.
    5. GOMB shall assemble all data reported by agencies as required by this Administrative Order and by Executive Order 10. GOMB will make the following information available publicly on the website http://accountability.illinois.gov not later than noon on October 18, 2010:

      3. All unique spending reductions, as required below; and
      4. One or more succinct narratives summarizing in plain language the reductions and amounts saved. Agencies should report savings in narrative form in the case where the Agency wants to specifically highlight a reduction of particular significance or magnitude, where the true reductions are not readily apparent from raw numerical data, or where the achievement is more readily described as an operational or functional innovation that enhances efficiency. When applicable, agencies shall post, in the "Cost Savings Suggestions" field, practical ideas for reducing spending that have been implemented successfully or which are being implemented.

    8. Agencies shall, to the best of their ability, provide their original estimates for the amounts they had expected to save, by reduction category, for the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2011, to enable GOMB and the agency to jointly analyze the progress the agency made in meeting its spending reduction goals.
