1 The fringe benefit costs for most state employees are budgeted centrally in accounts administered by the Comptroller. The estimated non-pension fringe benefit cost associated with personnel changes is 23.76% of payroll in FY 12 and FY 13. In addition, there could be an impact to potential liability for the applicable state pension funds.

2 A “good time” credit program was terminated, effective with convictions after 9/30/94 (PA 93-219). 4/1/06 is the date upon which the DOC instituted an offender accountability plan system that monitors an inmate's compliance with program, treatment and behavioral expectations.
