820 (a) A cost-benefit analysis that compares the total
821 recurring and nonrecurring operating costs of the current agency
822 e-mail systems, including monthly mailbox costs, staffing,
823 licensing and maintenance costs, hardware, and other related e
824 mail product and service costs to the costs associated with the
825 proposed statewide e-mail service. The analysis must also
827 1. A comparison of the estimated total 7-year life-cycle
828 cost of the current agency e-mail systems versus the feasibility
829 of funding the migration and operation of the statewide e-mail
831 2. An estimate of recurring costs associated with the
832 energy consumption of current agency e-mail equipment, and the
833 basis for the estimate.
834 3. An identification of the overall cost savings resulting
835 from state agencies migrating to the statewide e-mail service

857 necessary to implement the statewide e-mail service.
858 (3) Contingent upon approval by the Legislative Budget
859 Commission, the Southwood Shared Resource Center may contract
860 for the provision of a statewide e-mail service. Executive
861 branch agencies must be completely migrated to the statewide e
862 mail service based upon the migration date included in the
863 proposed plan approved by the Legislative Budget Commission.
864 (4) Notwithstanding chapter 216, general revenue funds may
865 be increased or decreased for each agency provided the net
866 change to general revenue in total for all agencies is zero or
868 (5) Subsequent to the approval of the consolidated budget
869 amendment to reflect budget adjustments necessary to migrate to
870 the statewide e-mail service, an agency may make adjustments
871 subject to s. 216.177 , notwithstanding provisions in chapter 216
872 which may require such adjustments to be approved by the
873 Legislative Budget Commission.
874 (6) No agency may initiate a new e-mail service or execute
875 a new e-mail contract or amend a current e-mail contract, other
876 than with the Southwood Shared Resource Center, for nonessential
877 products or services unless the Legislative Budget Commission
878 denies approval for the Southwood Shared Resource Center to
879 enter into a contract for the statewide e-mail service.
