All funds recovered from the federal government to offset statewide indirect costs shall be transferred to the Central Service Cost Recovery Fund or to the General Fund in a manner prescribed by the Department of Finance, unless expenditure of the funds is authorized by the Department of Finance. No authorization may become effective sooner than 30 days after notification in writing of the necessity therefor to the chairperson of the committee in each house that considers appropriations and the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, or not sooner than whatever lesser time the Chairperson of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee, or his or her designee, may in each instance determine. If in the judgment of the Director of Finance, a state agency has not transferred the funds on a timely basis, the Department of Finance may certify to the Controller the amount that the agency should have transferred to the Central Service Cost Recovery Fund or the General Fund, and the Controller shall transfer the funds to the Central Service Cost Recovery Fund or the General Fund.
