ECONOMIC IMPACT STATEMENT:



i. Estimate of cost and paperwork to implement:

The procedure of submitting rules typed in OCR readable format

will eliminate the need for retyping all submissions to the

Florida Administrative Weekly (FAW) and the Florida Administrative

Code (FAC). This time savings, along with faster correction and

update capability afforded by associated OCR equipment, will

reduce unit workload by approximately 50 percent, permitting

faster supplementing of the Code and eliminating the need for

more positions to meet current backlogs. The Department estimates

no cost or paperwork increase to implement this action.


2. Cost or benefit to persons directly affected:

The proposed process would require the forty filing agencies to

type their submitted copy exactly as it is to appear in the FAW

or FAC, in addition to, the copy already prepared with strike

through and additions. This will require these agencies to

acquire OCR elements for typewriters. Estimating that each

Division in the forty (40) filing agencies would require two

elements this would cost approximately $8,676.00.


3. Estimate of effect on competition and open market:

None


4. Data and method used in above estimates:

Estimated cost to agencies directly affected:

Cost of OCR Elements

Number of filing agency Divisions 241

Estimating two elements for each

Division (2 x 241) 482

Total cost ($18 x 482) $8,676


Cost of preparing an additional copy:

Unknown
