Capital and Leased Needs
TDLR's headquarters is in the E.O.Thompson Building, a state-owned building
managed by the Texas Facilities Commission (TFC). During fiscal year
- 2008, the agency incurred additional facility costs because of the increased
I> responsibilities given to it by the 2007 Legislature. As the agency's staff grew,
r 1 additional space was needed to accommodate them. Although TDLR obtained
additional space in the state-owned William Hobby Building, more was needed.
f r 1 Since adequate state-owned facilities were not available, we leased space in
L- __ fthe Twin Towers Building, and relocated our Enforcement division there. The
- y _i f Twin Towers Building will also provide a large meeting room that will be used
S[K .for Commission and Advisory Board meetings and the Architectural Barriers
4111- E "Texas Accessibility Academy." The building is surrounded by free parking that
- - will make meetings more accessible to the public and our licensees.
Renovations were completed at the Thompson Building, providing appropriate
the E.O.Thompson building isTDLR's space for the customer service contact center. Additional renovation is
headquarters underway to accommodate added staff.
The agency leased two 2004 4WD Chevrolet Tahoes and, at the end of the
lease in January 2007, took advantage of the $1.00 per unit bargain purchase
option. We will monitor the condition of the vehicles, but current plans are
to replace them during fiscal year 2009. There are no plans to lease additional
vehicles at this time.
During 2008 and 2009, the increase in staffing will require TDLR to order
computers and software licenses to accommodate the new employees. Also,
TDLR's four year computer replacement schedule will require the replacement
of forty-eight computers during fiscal year 2008; sixteen computers in fiscal
year 2009; fifty-five computers in fiscal year 2010 and sixty-six in fiscal year
The Network Systems and Maintenance section is also considering the
purchase of a network access control device to verify and check incoming data
to further protect against viruses and intrusions. With an increasing number
of staff located outside of agency headquarters, the Austin agency personnel
operating from three locations and access by the Team for Texas as part of
the data center and disaster recovery services, the security environment must
continue to be strengthened.
