Subsection 2 amended
8.36Fiscal year.The fiscal year of the government shall commence on the first day of July and end on the thirtieth day of June. This fiscal year shall be used for purposes of making appropriations and of financial reporting and shall be uniformly adopted by all departments and establishments of the government. However, the department of workforce development may use the federal fiscal year instead of the fiscal year commencing on July 1.[C35, §84-e28; C39, §84.29; C46, 50, 54, 58, 62, 66, 71, 73, 75, 77, 79, 81, §8.36; 1981 Acts, ch 19, §1]96 Acts, ch 1186, §23, 2017 Acts, ch 54, §6Referred to in 455A.19, 904.7068.36AFull-time equivalent positions.1.  For purposes of making appropriations and financial reports and as used in appropriations statutes, “full-time equivalent position” means a budgeting and monitoring unit that equates the aggregate of full-time positions, part-time positions, a vacancy and turnover factor, and other adjustments. One full-time equivalent position represents two thousand eighty working hours, which is the regular number of hours one full-time person works in one fiscal year. The number of full-time equivalent positions shall be calculated by totaling the regular number of hours that could be annually worked by persons in all authorized positions, reducing those hours by a vacancy and turnover factor and dividing that amount by two thousand eighty hours. In order to achieve the full-time equivalent position level, the number of filled positions may exceed the number of full-time equivalent positions during parts of the fiscal year to compensate for time periods when the number of filled positions is below the authorized number of full-time equivalent positions.2.a.  If a department or establishment has reached or anticipates reaching the full-time equivalent position level authorized for the department but determines that conversion of a contract position to a full-time equivalent position would result in cost savings while providing comparable or better services, the department or establishment may request the director of the department of management to approve the conversion and addition of the full-time equivalent position. The request shall be accompanied by evidence demonstrating how the cost savings and service quality will be achieved through the conversion. If approved by the director of the department of management, the department’s or establishment’s authorized full-time equivalent position level shall be increased accordingly and the revised level shall be reported to the fiscal committee of the legislative council and the legislative services agency.b.  A department or establishment shall not convert a full-time equivalent position authorized for the department or establishment to a contract position and shall not use appropriated moneys for such a contract position unless the department or establishment receives approval from the director of the department of management to convert the full-time equivalent position to a contract position. The director of the department of management shall not approve the conversion unless the department or establishment submits sufficient evidence that the conversion would result in cost savings while providing comparable or better services.90 Acts, ch 1247, §1, 2003 Acts, ch 35, §46, 49, 2003 Acts, ch 145, §122, 2010 Acts, ch 1031, §59Referred to in 455B.183C8.37Fiscal term.Repealed by 2001 Acts, 2nd Ex, ch 2, §12, 13. 8.38Misuse of appropriations.A state department, institution, or agency, or any board member, commissioner, director, manager, or other person connected with any such department, institution, or agency, shall not expend funds or approve claims in excess of the appropriations made thereto, nor expend funds for any purpose other than that for which the money was appropriated, except as otherwise provided by law. A violation of this section shall make any person committing or consenting to the violation liable to the state for the sum expended together with interest and costs, which shall be recoverable in an action to be instituted by the attorney general for the use of the state. The action may be brought in any county of the state.[C35, §84-e29; C39, §84.31; C46, 50, 54, 58, 62, 66, 71, 73, 75, 77, 79, 81, §8.38]2019 Acts, ch 59, §4

Such transfer shall be to an appropriation made from the same funding source and within the same fiscal year. The amount of a transfer made from an appropriation under this subsection shall be limited to not more than one-tenth of one percent of the total of all appropriations made from the funding source of the transferred appropriation for the fiscal year in which the transfer is made.2.  If the appropriation of a department, institution, or agency is insufficient to properly meet the legitimate expenses of the department, institution, or agency, the director, with the approval of the governor, may make an interdepartmental transfer from any other department, institution, or agency of the state having an appropriation in excess of its needs, of sufficient funds to meet that deficiency. Such transfer shall be to an appropriation made from the same funding source and within the same fiscal year. The amount of a transfer made from an appropriation under this subsection shall be limited to not more than one-tenth of one percent of the total of all appropriations made from the funding source of the transferred appropriation for the fiscal year in which the transfer is made.

For the purposes of this subsection, an entitlement appropriation is a line item appropriation to the state public defender for indigent defense or to the department of human services for foster care, state supplementary assistance, or medical assistance, or for the family investment program.3.  The aggregate amount of intradepartmental and interdepartmental transfers made from all appropriations for a fiscal year pursuant to this section is limited to not more than five-tenths of one percent of the total amount of the appropriations made from the general fund of the state for the fiscal year. The aggregate amount of the intradepartmental and interdepartmental transfers made from an appropriation for a fiscal year is limited to fifty percent of the appropriation.4.  Prior to any transfer of funds pursuant to subsection 1 or 2 of this section or a transfer of an allocation from a subunit of a department which statutorily has independent budgeting authority, the director shall notify the chairpersons of the standing committees on budget of the senate and the house of representatives and the chairpersons of subcommittees of such committees of the proposed transfer. The notice from the director shall include information concerning the amount of the proposed transfer, the departments, institutions or agencies affected by the proposed transfer and the reasons for the proposed transfer. Chairpersons notified shall be given at least two weeks to review and comment on the proposed transfer before the transfer of funds is made.5.a.  Any transfer made under the provisions of this section shall be reported to the legislative fiscal committee on a monthly basis. The report shall cover each calendar month and shall be due the tenth day of the following month. The report shall contain the following:(1)  The amount of each transfer.

An appropriation shall be made in accordance with subsection 4 only for the fiscal year in which the appropriation is made. The moneys shall only be appropriated by the general assembly for nonrecurring emergency expenditures and shall not be appropriated for payment of any collective bargaining agreement or arbitrator’s decision negotiated or awarded under chapter 20. Except as provided in section 8.58, the cash reserve fund shall be considered a special account for the purposes of section 8.53 in determining the cash position of the general fund of the state for the payment of state obligations.4.a.  Except as provided in subsection 1, an appropriation shall not be made from the cash reserve fund unless the appropriation is in accordance with all of the following:(1)  The appropriation is contained in a bill or joint resolution in which the appropriation is the only subject matter of the bill or joint resolution.(2)  The bill or joint resolution states the reasons the appropriation is necessary.b.  In addition to the requirements of paragraph “a”, an appropriation shall not be made from the cash reserve fund which would cause the fund’s balance to be less than three and three-fourths percent of the adjusted revenue estimate for the year for which the appropriation is made unless the bill or joint resolution is approved by vote of at least three-fifths of the members of both chambers of the general assembly and is signed by the governor.1992 Acts, ch 1227, §6; 1994 Acts, ch 1181, §9; 1995 Acts, ch 214, §14; 2001 Acts, ch 6, §29-31; 2002 Acts, ch 1001, §27,33; 2003 Acts, ch 179, §40Referred to in 8.54, 8.628.57Annual appropriations — reduction of GAAP deficit — rebuild Iowa infrastructure fund sports wagering receipts fund.1.a.  The “cash reserve goal percentage” for fiscal years beginning on or after July 1, 2004, is seven and one-half percent of the adjusted revenue estimate. For each fiscal year in which the appropriation of the surplus existing in the general fund of the state at the conclusion of the prior fiscal year pursuant to paragraph “b” was not sufficient for the cash reserve fund to reach the cash reserve goal percentage for the current fiscal year, there is appropriated from the general fund of the state an amount to be determined as follows:(1)  If the balance of the cash reserve fund in the current fiscal year is not more than six and one-half percent of the adjusted revenue estimate for the current fiscal year, the amount of the appropriation under this lettered paragraph is one percent of the adjusted revenue estimate for the current fiscal year.(2)  If the balance of the cash reserve fund in the current fiscal year is more than six and one-half percent but less than seven and one-half percent of the adjusted revenue estimate for that fiscal year, the amount of the appropriation under this lettered paragraph is the amount necessary for the cash reserve fund to reach seven and one-half percent of the adjusted revenue estimate for the current fiscal year.(3)  The moneys appropriated under this lettered paragraph shall be credited in equal and proportionate amounts in each quarter of the current fiscal year.b.  The surplus existing in the general fund of the state at the conclusion of the fiscal year is appropriated for distribution in the succeeding fiscal year as provided in subsections 2 and 3.

As used in this paragraph, “surplus” means the excess of revenues and other financing sources over expenditures and other financing uses for the general fund of the state in a fiscal year.c.  The amount appropriated in this section is not subject to the provisions of section 8.31, relating to requisitions and allotment, or to section 8.32, relating to conditional availability of appropriations.2.  Moneys appropriated under subsection 1 shall be first credited to the cash reserve fund. To the extent that moneys appropriated under subsection 1 would make the moneys in the cash reserve fund exceed the cash reserve goal percentage of the adjusted revenue estimate for the fiscal year, the moneys are appropriated to the department of management to be spent for the purpose of eliminating Iowa’s GAAP deficit, including the payment of items budgeted in a subsequent fiscal year which under generally accepted accounting principles should be budgeted in the current fiscal year. These moneys shall be deposited into a GAAP deficit reduction account established within the department of management. The department of management shall annually file with both houses of the general assembly at the time of the submission of the governor’s budget, a schedule of the items for which moneys appropriated under this subsection for the purpose of eliminating Iowa’s GAAP deficit, including the payment of items budgeted in a subsequent fiscal year which under generally accepted accounting principles should be budgeted in the current fiscal year, shall be spent. The schedule shall indicate the fiscal year in which the spending for an item is to take place and shall incorporate the items detailed in 1994 Acts, ch 1181, §17. The schedule shall list each item of expenditure and the estimated dollar amount of moneys to be spent on that item for the fiscal year. The department of management may submit during a regular legislative session an amended schedule for legislative consideration. If moneys appropriated under this subsection are not enough to pay for all listed expenditures, the department of management shall distribute the payments among the listed expenditure items. Moneys appropriated to the department of management under this subsection shall not be spent on items other than those included in the filed schedule. On September 1 following the close of a fiscal year, moneys in the GAAP deficit reduction account which remain unexpended for items on the filed schedule for the previous fiscal year shall be credited to the Iowa economic emergency fund.3.  To the extent that moneys appropriated under subsection 1 exceed the amounts necessary for the cash reserve fund to reach its maximum balance and the amounts necessary to eliminate Iowa’s GAAP deficit, including elimination of the making of any appropriation in an incorrect fiscal year, the moneys shall be appropriated to the Iowa economic emergency fund.4.  As used in this section, “GAAP” means generally accepted accounting principles as established by the governmental accounting standards board.5.a.  A rebuild Iowa infrastructure fund is created under the authority of the department of management. The fund shall consist of appropriations made to the fund and transfers of interest, earnings, and moneys from other funds as provided by law. The rebuild Iowa infrastructure fund shall be separate from the general fund of the state and the balance in the rebuild Iowa infrastructure fund shall not be considered part of the balance of the general fund of the state. However, the rebuild Iowa infrastructure fund shall be considered a special account for the purposes of section 8.53, relating to generally accepted accounting principles.b.  Moneys in the rebuild Iowa infrastructure fund are not subject to section 8.33.
