  • agency use

(1) Pursuant to ORS 291.252 (Modifying allotment previously made), if the Oregon Department of Administrative Services certifies agency savings due to agency actions rather than changes in service demands and such actions do not materially reduce legislatively authorized programs, 50 percent of the savings shall be credited to the General Fund or, if the agency’s funds originated as dedicated funds or federal funds, to the fund or account of the agency to be used for purposes of the fund or account.

(2) The remaining 50 percent shall be continuously appropriated to the agency for enhancing professional development, including employee training projects related to productivity, technology enhancement and related expenditures that have a long term benefit. A productivity improvement project may be for research and development intended to lead to improved productivity. [1993 c.724 §2]
