Budget
February 4, 2011:  Testimony before the Human and Health Services Subcommittee of the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee (http://www.msa.md.gov/megafile/msa/stagsere/se1/se14/000000/000033/pdf/budget_testimony_2012.pdf)

Capital Budget
A revised Capital Budget program will be submitted June 30.  It envisions dividing the currently submitted program into two parts, the sum of which would be less expensive.  The program document submitted this year will consist of constructing a remote storage facility in the Jessup area.  Next year, we will address the need for additional interpretation and conservation space in Annapolis.

Memorandum of Understanding with the Judiciary
A new MOU with the Judiciary will provide the Archives with the funding necessary to maintain MdLandRec.net.  We would like to thank the Clerks, the AOC, JIS, and the Chief Judge for continuing this worthwhile partnership in service to the public

Grants
Audio Archiving
Archiving of audio files presents a number of difficulties.  We will be working with other archival institutions, including the Washington State Archives, to develop the ability to convert, index and preserve audio.  A Bill last year to establish the Joint Committee on Transparency and Openness allowed public bodies to post streaming audio and video on the internet of open meetings, in lieu of written minutes of the meeting.  The Archives wants to ensure that we can successfully harvest and archive what, for many municipal and state agencies, would be considered permanent record material.  See SB 664 (http://www.msa.md.gov/megafile/msa/stagsere/se1/se14/000000/000033/pdf/ch_508_sb0644e.pdf) and HB 766 (http://www.msa.md.gov/megafile/msa/stagsere/se1/se14/000000/000033/pdf/ch_509_hb0766e.pdf)
SNAP State Historical Records Advisory Board Revitalization and Emergency Preparedness $7,658
          DOE Flight to Freedom $738,935
          NHPRC Salvaging the Records of Baltimore City $121,840
          Middendorf Washington document case $60,000
          Four Rivers Heritage Area Grant for State Art Collection booklet, $2,500
          IMLS HistoryMakers Grant -- 1 or 2 archivists placed with the Maryland State Archives for 9 months
          Other grant applications and solicitations for funding that are in the works, including our partnership with the Friends of the Maryland State Archives

Joint Chairman's Report.  The budget bill passed this past legislative session requires the Archives to undertake a study (http://www.msa.md.gov/megafile/msa/stagsere/se1/se14/000000/000033/pdf/d60a_jtchrmn_rpt.pdf) to evaluate:
Space requirements for the storage of permanent record material and recommendations for the funding of these requirements
Feasibility of funding records management and the archival program through a surcharge on existing fees generated at the creation of permanent records
Cost / benefit analysis of storing records in privately-owned facilities versus operating state-owned facilities
