307.47  Materials and equipment revolving fund--annual purchase report.

1.  The highway materials and equipment revolving fund is created from moneys appropriated out of the primary road fund. From this fund shall be paid all costs for materials and supplies, inventoried stock supplies, maintenance and operational costs of equipment, and equipment replacements incurred in the operation of centralized purchasing under the supervision of the department's administrator of highways. Direct salaries and expenses properly chargeable to direct salaries shall be paid from the fund. For each month the director shall render a statement to each unit under the supervision of the administrator of highways for the actual cost of materials and supplies, operational and maintenance costs of equipment, and equipment depreciation used. The expense shall be paid by the administrator of highways in the same manner as other interdepartmental billings are paid and when the expense is paid by the administrator of highways, the sum paid shall be credited to the highway materials and equipment revolving fund.

2.  If surplus accrues to the revolving fund in excess of one hundred thousand dollars for which there is no anticipated need or use, the governor shall order that surplus reverted to the primary road fund.

3.  When the units under the supervision of the administrator of highways share equipment with other administrative units of the department, the director shall prorate the costs of the equipment among the administrative units using the equipment.

4.  The department shall present a purchase report to the legislative fiscal bureau prior to the beginning of each regular annual session of the general assembly. The report shall cover all equipment and vehicle purchases through the highway materials and equipment revolving fund during the preceding fiscal year.
