SB 3 allows deviations from the established schedule of minimum wages increases, based on economic conditions. The primary possible changes are potential “off-ramps” if and when the economy performs poorly in the next several years. Under SB 3, on or before July 28 of each year, the state Director of Finance is required annually to determine, based on certain factors, whether economic conditions can support the scheduled minimum wage increase and to certify that determination to the Governor and the Legislature. SB 3 also requires the State Board of Equalization to publish specified retail sales and use tax information on its Internet Web site to be used by the Director of Finance in making that determination.
In order for Enveloped Public Key Encryption to be as secure as possible, there needs to be a "gatekeeper" of public and private keys, or else anyone could create key pairs and masquerade as the intended sender of a communication, proposing them as the keys of the intended sender. This digital key "gatekeeper" is known as a certification authority . A certification authority is a trusted third party that can issue public and private keys, thus certifying public keys. It also works as a depository to store key chain and enforce the trust factor.
I have worked in both sectors, although would class myself as a “private sector” procurement professional.
From what I have seen in more than one area of the public sector, is the big difference seems to be the lack of drive and ability to deliver. It often seems that in the public sector there hasn’t been a need to perform as funding just keeps coming, whereas within the private sector, businesses and hence procurement have to perform and constantly improve or they don’t survive. I’m sure I’ll get some flack for these comments, but the public sector really need to improve now funding is being cut and they/we are more under the spotlight than ever. Procurement in the public sector do however, need to start taking some responsibility and making things happen rather than looking to someone else to do it. Lets stop bleating about how hard it is (It isnt!) and lets get on with it.
