Previous Definitions Of Funds -- Identification Or Segregation Of Money And Funds

17-2-103. Previous definitions of funds -- identification or segregation of money and funds. (1) It is the intent of the legislature that the definitions in 17-2-102 supersede all previous definitions of public funds that are inconsistent with the definitions found in this part.

(2) Any laws enacted or any contracts entered into in pursuance of law that require the segregation of money in the state treasury by means of a separate treasury fund must be interpreted as permitting the segregation of the money by means of a subfund or account within one of the funds created by 17-2-102.

(3) Each federal grant or other federal money within any subfund or account of one of the funds created by 17-2-102(1) through (3) must be identifiable as a separate accounting entity, reporting center, responsibility center, or revenue identification code, and an account must be made of each grant or other money by income and expenditure for each federal grant year or fiscal year as may be applicable.

(4) Unless otherwise specifically provided in the statutes pertaining to the tax, the portion of taxes collected by the state that, pursuant to a statute, are to be allocated or distributed to units of local government, school districts, authorities, or other local governmental entities must be accounted for in a state special revenue fund, established in 17-2-102, as prescribed by the department in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
