Summary of the rule or change:
This amendment adds language requiring Schedule AB, AC, AD, and AR appointees to complete disclosure statements and undergo reference and background checks.
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Section 67-19-6
- Section 67-20-8
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
There may be minimal costs associated with the newly required checks. These costs will be primarily absorbed by the Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM).
This rule only affects the executive branch of state government and will have no impact on local government.
This rule only affects the executive branch of state government and will have no impact on small businesses.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
This rule only affects the executive branch of state government. No significant cost impact is expected on other persons. This rule does not directly impact costs or savings to state employees.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Minimal cost associated with processing increased volume of the required checks will be absorbed by DHRM. No other compliance costs are expected.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
Rules published by DHRM have no direct effect on businesses or any entity outside state government. DHRM has authority to write rules only to the extent allowed by the Utah Personnel Management Act, Title 67, Chapter 19. This act limits the provisions of career service and these rules to employees of the executive branch of state government. The only possible impact may be a very slight, indirect effect if an agency passes costs or savings on to business through fees. However, it is anticipated that the minimal costs associated with these changes will be absorbed by agency budgets and will have no effect on business.
