The Fiscal Services
group supports DoIT divisions in the area of budgeting and fiscal operations and administers statewide the Major Information Technology Development Project Fund (MITDPF). One of the fiscal operational functions is to bill for Private Branch Exchanges (PBX), Multi-Service Centers (MSC), and networkMaryland.
Budgeting and Fiscal Operations - These functions consist of planning, organizing and monitoring the DoIT budget and assisting DoIT Divisions in the completion of financial transactions and other fiscal support.
Major Information Technology Development Project Fund (MITDPF) is the fund that supports Major Information Technology Development projects throughout the state, except for public institutions of higher education, by transferring appropriations and funds (except moneys associated with the Department of Transportation, Maryland Transportation Authority, or Maryland Public Broadcasting Commission) to projects that have been reviewed and approved for consistency with statewide plans, policies, and standards, including a systems development life cycle plan by the Strategic Planning Division. Fiscal Services administers this fund.

PBX and MSC service includes the coordination of the acquisition, management and operation of common user telecommunications equipment, systems or services. In addition, the Networks Division coordinates the development and procurement of telecommunications equipment, systems, and services. While these services are provided through the Networks Division, appropriations are included in agencies' budgets based upon the established agency configuration and estimated costs for the services. Fiscal Services bills for the services four times each year: the first three billings to entities receiving the service occur within forty-five days after the end of each fiscal quarter; the fourth billing occurs within 45 days of the Comptroller deadline for completion of the year-end financial close by State agencies.
For additional information, please see Networks Division.
