A.1. There is hereby created on the books of the State Comptroller the Commonwealth Charge Card Rebate Fund. Rebates earned in any fiscal year on the Commonwealth's statewide charge card program shall be deposited to the Commonwealth Charge Card Rebate Fund.  The cost of administration of the program as well as rebates due to political subdivisions and payments due to the federal government are hereby appropriated from the fund. All remaining rebate revenue in the fund shall be deposited to the general fund by June 30 of each year.


2. The Department of Accounts is authorized to include the administrative costs estimated at $80,000 per year for executing entries in the Commonwealth's accounting system for Level III institutions as defined in Chapter 675, 2009 Acts of Assembly, in the program costs appropriated from the fund.


B. The department shall coordinate records management and reporting requirements pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Agencies receiving funds pursuant to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 shall: (i) comply with the financial or other data reporting requirements set forth by the State Comptroller or the Director, Department of Planning and Budget, and shall compile and maintain all records necessary to fulfill such reporting requirements and to meet any subsequent audit of the expenditure of such federal funds; (ii) comply with all federal reporting requirements for the receipt of any funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and shall compile and maintain all records necessary to fulfill such reporting requirements and to meet any subsequent audit of the expenditure of such federal funds; and (iii) comply with any requirements established to ensure the transparency of the use or expenditure of such federal funds.


C. Notwithstanding the provisions of §§ 17.1-286 and 58.1-3176, Code of Virginia, the State Comptroller shall not make payments to the Circuit Court clerks on amounts directly deposited into the State Treasury by General District Courts, Juvenile and Domestic Relations General District Courts, Combined District Courts, and the Magistrates System.  The State Comptroller shall continue to make payments, in accordance with §§ 17.1-286 and 58.1-3176, Code of Virginia, to the respective clerks on those amounts directly deposited into the state treasury by the Circuit Courts.


D. There is hereby created in the state treasury a special nonreverting fund that shall be known as the Federal Repayment Reserve Fund. The Fund shall be established on the books of the Comptroller and shall consist of such moneys as the State Comptroller determines will be required to repay the federal government its share of any rebates, Internal Service Fund profits, transfers to the general fund or amounts arising from other sources. Interest earned on the moneys in the Fund shall remain in the Fund and be credited to it. Any moneys remaining in the Fund, including interest thereon, at the end of the fiscal year shall not revert to the general fund but shall remain in the Fund. The Comptroller shall hold all moneys in this Fund until such payment is required by the federal government.


Effective upon creation of Federal Repayment Reserve Fund, any agency with cash balances held in reserve for the anticipated federal repayment shall transfer the estimated amount determined by the State Comptroller prior to June 30. On an ongoing basis, agencies shall coordinate with the State Comptroller to identify amounts due to be returned to the federal government. The State Comptroller shall transfer those amounts to the Fund on or before June 30 of each year.
