HB23-1087 Fiscal Rule Advance Payment Charitable Food Grants House:

The state's fiscal rules (rules) generally prohibit payment prior to
the receipt and acceptance of goods or the completion and acceptance of
services (advance payment). However, the rules contain exceptions
allowing advance payment for certain goods and services including but
not limited to advertising services and related goods, construction
permits, catering for events at both state and non-state facilities,
formula-based federal grants for which the state acts as a fiscal agent
managing the pass-through of the money, information technology service
agreements, and purchases made with state commercial cards.
The bill creates an additional exception to the prohibition on
advance payment by directing the controller to promulgate rules
providing for advance payment for the purchase of state agricultural
products by a charitable food organization using state grant money.
