Modifying provisions concerning the general administration services account.  

    AN ACT Relating to consolidating funds within the general administration services account; amending RCW 39.35.060, 43.19.025, and 43.19.1923; and repealing RCW 39.35C.110.




    Sec. 1.  RCW 39.35.060 and 1996 c 186 s 404 are each amended to read as follows:

    The department may impose fees upon affected public agencies for the review of life-cycle cost analyses.  The fees shall be deposited in the ((energy efficiency services account established in RCW 39.35C.110)) general administration services account.  The purpose of the fees is to recover the costs by the department for review of the analyses.  The department shall set fees at a level necessary to recover all of its costs related to increasing the energy efficiency of state-supported new construction.  The fees shall not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total cost of any project or exceed two thousand dollars for any project unless mutually agreed to.  The department shall provide detailed calculation ensuring that the energy savings resulting from its review of life-cycle cost analysis justify the costs of performing that review.


    Sec. 2.  RCW 43.19.025 and 1998 c 105 s 1 are each amended to read as follows:

    The general ((services)) administration (([general administration services])) services account is created in the custody of the state treasurer and shall be used for all activities previously budgeted and accounted for in the following internal service funds:  The motor transport account, the general administration management fund, the general administration facilities and services revolving fund, the central stores revolving fund, the surplus property purchase revolving fund, ((and)) the risk management account, and the energy efficiency services account.  Only the director or the director's designee may authorize expenditures from the account.  The account is subject to the allotment procedures under chapter 43.88 RCW.


    Sec. 3.  RCW 43.19.1923 and 1998 c 105 s 6 are each amended to read as follows:

    The general administration services account shall be used for the purchase of supplies and equipment handled or rented through central stores, and the payment of salaries, wages, and other costs incidental to the acquisition, operation, and maintenance of the central stores, and other activities connected therewith, which shall include utilities services.  ((Disbursements from the account for the purchasing and contract administration activities of the division of purchasing within the department are subject to appropriation and allotment procedures under chapter 43.88 RCW.  Disbursements for all other state purchasing activities within the general administration services account are not subject to appropriation.))  The account shall be credited with all receipts from the rental, sale, or distribution of supplies, equipment, and services rendered to the various state agencies.  Central stores, utilities services, and other activities within the general administration services account shall be treated as separate operating entities for financial and accounting control.  Financial records involving the general administration services account shall be designed to provide data for achieving maximum effectiveness and economy of each individual activity within the account.


    NEW SECTION.  Sec. 4.  RCW 39.35C.110 (Energy efficiency services account--Fees) and 1996 c 186 s 415 & 1991 c 201 s 12 are each repealed.
