   11  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   13         Section 1. Subsection (2) of section 110.181, Florida
   14  Statutes, is amended to read:
   15         110.181 Florida State Employees’ Charitable Campaign.—
   17         (a) The Department of Management Services shall select
   18  through the competitive procurement process a fiscal agent or
   19  agents to receive, account for, and distribute charitable
   20  contributions among participating charitable organizations.
   21         (b) The fiscal agent shall withhold the reasonable costs
   22  for conducting the campaign and for accounting and distribution
   23  to the participating organizations and shall reimburse the
   24  department the actual cost, not to exceed 1 percent of gross
   25  pledges, for coordinating the campaign in accordance with the
   26  rules of the department. In any fiscal year in which the
   27  Legislature specifically appropriates to the department its
   28  total costs for coordinating the campaign from the General
   29  Revenue Fund, the fiscal agent is not required to reimburse such
   30  costs to the department under this subsection. Otherwise,
   31  reimbursement will be the difference between actual costs and
   32  the amount appropriated.
   33         (c) The fiscal agent shall furnish the department and
   34  participating charitable organizations a report of the
   35  accounting and distribution activities. Records relating to
   36  these activities shall be open for inspection upon reasonable
   37  notice and request.
   38         (d) A local steering committee shall be established in each
   39  fiscal agent area to assist in conducting the campaign and to
   40  direct the distribution of undesignated funds remaining after
   41  partial distribution pursuant to paragraph (e). The committee
   42  shall be composed of state employees selected by the fiscal
   43  agent from among recommendations provided by interested
   44  participating organizations, if any, and approved by the
   45  Statewide Steering Committee.
   46         (e) Participating charitable organizations that provide
   47  direct services in a local fiscal agent’s area shall receive the
   48  same percentage of undesignated funds as the percentage of
   49  designated funds they receive in the campaign. The payment of
   50  each charity’s share of undesignated funds shall be distributed
   51  in the same manner as the designations. The undesignated funds
   52  remaining following allocation to these charitable organizations
   53  shall be distributed by the local steering committee.
   54         Section 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2010.
