REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics (OPP) requests Controlling Board approval to increase FY 2018 appropriation authority in the amount of $46,036.00 for Fund 4K90, line item 973609.

 
  The Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics Board will be abolished pursuant to Am. Sub. H.B. 49 of the 132nd General Assembly and the duties transferred to the Ohio Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Athletic Trainers Board effective January 21, 2018. Section 515.32 of H.B. 49 authorizes OPP, with the approval of the Office of Budget and Management (OBM), to establish an early retirement incentive plan (ERI) for eligible employees. An ERI helps mitigate the potential for an excess number of employees when OPP is transferred to the Ohio Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Athletic Trainers Board. OPP received OBM's approval to offer a one-year ERI.

OPP has one eligible employee and expects the employee to take the ERI offered. The cost to purchase one year of retirement service credit with the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System for the employee is $46,036.00, which will exceed OPP's available appropriation. As a result, the Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics Board requests Controlling Board approval to increase FY 2018 appropriation authority by $46,036.00 to pay this cost.
