Data processing revolving fund — Created — Use.
There is created a revolving fund to be known as the data processing revolving fund in the custody of the state treasurer. The revolving fund shall be used for the acquisition of equipment, software, supplies, and services and the payment of salaries, wages, and other costs incidental to the acquisition, development, operation, and administration of information services, telecommunications, systems, software, supplies and equipment, including the payment of principal and interest on bonds issued for capital projects, by the department, Washington State University's computer services center, the department of enterprise services' personnel information systems group and financial systems management group, and other users as determined by the office of financial management. The revolving fund is subject to the allotment procedure provided under chapter 43.88 RCW. The chief information officer or the chief information officer's designee, with the approval of the technology services board, is authorized to expend up to one million dollars per fiscal biennium for the technology services board to conduct independent technical and financial analysis of proposed information technology projects, and such an expenditure does not require an appropriation. Disbursements from the revolving fund for the services component of the department are not subject to appropriation. Disbursements for the strategic planning and policy component of the department are subject to appropriation. All disbursements from the fund are subject to the allotment procedures provided under chapter 43.88 RCW. The department shall establish and implement a billing structure to assure all agencies pay an equitable share of the costs.
During the 2011-2013 and the 2013-2015 fiscal biennia, the legislature may transfer from the data processing revolving account to the state general fund such amounts as reflect the excess fund balance and may use the data processing revolving account for information technology projects.
As used in this section, the word "supplies" shall not be interpreted to delegate or abrogate the division of purchasing's responsibilities and authority to purchase supplies as described in *RCW 43.19.190 and 43.19.200.
