The department may use interentity loans in accordance with 17-2-107 to pay planning and design costs incurred before the receipt of funding from another funding source.

 

     Section 6.  Capital projects -- contingent funds. If a capital project is financed in whole or in part with appropriations contingent upon the receipt of funding from another funding source, the department of administration may not let the project for bid until the agency receiving funding has submitted a financial plan for approval by the director of the department of administration.

Agencies must be notified of potential funding after the review.

     (3)(4) The department of administration is authorized to transfer the appropriations in subsections (1) and (2) among the necessary fund types for this project."

 

     Section 10.  Coordination instruction. If [LC 681] is not passed and approved containing a transfer from the consumer protection account to the long-range building program account, then the appropriation to the department of administration for the Montana law enforcement academy project in [section 2] is void.
