AN ACT IMPLEMENTING THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM REVIEW AND INVESTIGATIONS COMMITTEE CONCERNING MAXIMIZING ALTERNATIVE REVENUE

SUMMARY: This act requires the Office of Policy and Management (OPM), within available resources, to (1) develop a system for tracking the state's federal and alternative grant funding and (2) work with state agencies to maximize federal revenue. The OPM secretary must identify the agencies that should designate a federal and alternative funding liaison to OPM. These liaisons must ensure OPM has access to any grant application information needed to track grant funding.

The act also requires OPM to report, by November 15, 2014 and annually thereafter, on its efforts to maximize alternative revenues to the Finance, Revenue and Bonding and Appropriations committees. OPM must also annually submit this report to the Program Review and Investigations Committee and post it on OPM's website.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2013
