SECTION 7.   Section 4A of chapter 7 of the General Laws, as most recently amended by sections 19 and 20 of chapter 165 of the acts of 2014, is hereby amended by striking out the first paragraph and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-
The executive office for administration and finance shall include a division of capital asset management and maintenance, which shall be headed by a commissioner as provided in section 2 of chapter 7C, and a department of revenue as provided in chapter 14. In addition, the executive office for administration and finance shall include the following divisions: human resources, information technology, fiscal affairs and operational services, which divisions shall develop policy and standards to govern the conduct of commonwealth secretariats, departments, agencies, boards and commissions in each of these areas, and shall provide expertise and centralized processing to said secretariats, departments, agencies, boards, commissions and other entities of state government.
