59

vided by such law. If financing is provided by means other than the levy of a special tax, the method of fi­nancing shall bear a reasonable relationship to the actual costs of performing the activity or providing the service or facility, and shall not reduce, supplant, or adversely affect other state or federal revenues shared with or granted to municipalities or counties.

(3)(a)l.

The audits referred to in this subparagraph shall be made whenever determined by the Auditor General, whenever directed by the Legis­lative Auditing Committee, or whenever otherwise required by law or concurrent resolution.

3. If by July 1 in any fiscal year a local govern­mental entity has not been notified that a financial audit for that fiscal year will be performed by the Au­ditor General pursuant to subparagraph 2., each mu­nicipality with either revenues or expenditures of more than $100,000, each special district with either revenues or expenditures of more than $25,000, and each county agency shall require that an annual fi­nancial audit of its accounts and records be complet­ed, within 6 months after the end of its respective fis­cal year, by an independent certified public accoun­tant retained by it and paid from its public funds. A management letter shall be prepared and included as a part of each financial audit report. The county au­dit shall be one document which shall include a sepa­rate audit of each county agency.

72

c. The committee shall encourage firms engaged in the lawful practice of public accounting who desire to provide professional services to submit annually a statement of qualifications and performance data.

d . Any certified public accountant desiring to provide auditing services must first be qualified pur­suant to law. The committee shall make a finding that the firm or individual to be employed is fully qualified to render the required service. Among the factors to be considered in making this finding are the capabilities, adequacy of personnel, past record, and experience of the firm or individual.

e. The committee shall adopt procedures for the evaluation of professional services, including, but not limited to, capabilities, adequacy of personnel, past record, experience, and such other factors as may be determined by the committee to be applicable to its particular requirements.

f. The public shall not be excluded from the pro­ceedings under this subparagraph.

g. The committee shall evaluate current state­ments of qualifications and performance data on file with the committee, together with those that may be submitted by other firms regarding the proposed au­dit, and shall conduct discussions with, and may re­quire public presentations by, no fewer than three firms regarding their qualifications, approach to the audit, and ability to furnish the required service.

h. The committee shall select no fewer than three firms deemed to be the most highly qualified to per­form the required services after considering such fac­tors as the ability of professional personnel; past per­formance; willingness to meet time requirements; lo­cation; recent, current, and projected workloads of the firms; and the volume of work previously award­ed to the firm by the agency, with the object of effect­ing an equitable distribution of contracts among qualified firms , provided such distribution does not violate the principle of selection of the most highly qualified firms. If fewer than three firms desire to perform the services, the committee shall recommend such firms as it determines to be qualified.

i. Nothing in this subparagraph shall be con­strued to prohibit contracts for a period in excess of 1 year.

j. If the board of county commissioners receives more than one proposal for the same engagement, the board may rank, in order of preference, the firms to perform the engagement. The firm ranked first may then negotiate a contract with the board giving, among other things, a basis of its fee for that engage­ment. Should the board be unable to negotiate a sat­isfactory contract with that firm, negotiations with that firm shall be formally terminated, and the board shall then undertake negotiations with the sec­ond-ranked firm. Failing accord with the sec­ond-ranked firm, negotiations shall then be terminat­ed 1 with that firm and undertaken with the third-ranked firm. Negotiations with the other ran­ked firms shall be undertaken in the same manner. The board, in negotiating with firms, may reopen for­mal negotiations with any one of the three top-ranked firms, but it may not negotiate with more than one firm at a time. The board shall also negoti­ate on the scope and quality of services. In making such determination, the board shall conduct a de-

tailed analysis of the cost of the professional services required in addition to considering their scope and complexity. For contracts over $50,000, the board shall require the firm receiving the award to execute a truth-in-negotiation certificate stating that the rates of compensation and other factual unit costs supporting the compensation are accurate, complete, and current at the time of contracting. Such certifi­cate shall also contain a description and disclosure of any understanding that places a limit on current or future years' audit contract fees, including any ar­rangements under which fixed limits on fees will not be subject to reconsideration if unexpected account­ing or auditing issues are encountered. Such certifi­cate shall also contain a description of any services rendered by the certified public accountant or firm of certified public accountants at rates or terms that are not customary. Any auditing service contract under which such a certificate is required shall contain a provision that the original contract price and any ad­ditions thereto shall be adjusted to exclude any sig­nificant sums by which the board determines the contract price was increased due to inaccurate or in­complete factual unit costs. All such contract adjust­ments shall be made within 1 year following the end of the contract. This sub-subparagraph shall apply to audits covering the 1982-1983 fiscal year, and the procedure in this sub-subparagraph may be used by any county for subsequent audits. If there is a con­flict between this sub-subparagraph and s. 473.317, this sub-subparagraph shall prevail.

k. Should the board be unable to negotiate a sat­isfactory contract with any of the selected firms, the committee shall select additional firms, and the board shall continue negotiations in accordance with this subsection until an agreement is reached.

l. At the conclusion of the audit field work, the independent certified public accountant shall discuss with the head of each county agency and the chair­man of the board of county commissioners or his des­ignee all of the auditor's comments which will be in­cluded in the report containing the auditor's com­ments for the areas within their responsibility. If the officer is not available to discuss the auditor's com­ments, their discussion is presumed when the com­ments are delivered in writing to his office.

m. The officer's written statement of explanation or rebuttal concerning the auditor's comments, in­cluding corrective action to be taken, shall be filed with the governing body of the county and with the Auditor General within 20 days of the delivery of the financial audit report.

n. The Auditor General, in consultation with the Board of Accountancy, shall adopt rules for the form imd conduct of all local governmental entity audits. Such rules shall include, but not be limited to, re­quirements for the reporting of information neces­sary to carry out the purposes of the Local Govern­ment Financial Emergency and Accountability Act, chapter 79-183, Laws of Florida.

The procedures under sub-subparagraphs a.-k. do not apply to audit agreements or contracts entered into before July 1, 1983.

4. Any financial audit report required under sub-

73

paragraph 3. shall be submitted to the Auditor Gen­eral no later than 7 months after the end of the fiscal year of the governmental entity. If the Auditor Gen­eral does not receive the financial audit within such period, he shall notify the Legislative Auditing Com­mittee that such governmental entity has not com­plied with this subparagraph. Following notification of failure to submit the required audit, the Legisla­tive Auditing Committee may:

a. In the case of a city or county, notify the De­partment of Revenue and the Department of Bank­ing and Finance that the local unit of government has failed to comply. Upon notification, the department shall withhold any funds payable to such governmen­tal entity until the required financial audit is re­ceived by the Auditor General.

b. In the case of a special district, notify the De­partment of Community Affairs that the special dis­trict has failed to provide the required audits. Upon notification, the department shall proceed pursuant to ss. 189.008 and 189.009.

5. The Auditor General, in consultation with the Board of Accountancy, shall review all audits com­pleted for local units of government by an indepen­dent certified public accountant.

The su­pervisor of elections of the county in which the mu­nicipality is located shall certify whether or not the petition contains the signatures of at least 20 percent of the electors of the municipality. The expenses of such audit shall be paid by the municipality and, in the event the municipality fails to pay the cost of the audit, the Department of Revenue shall, upon certifi­cation of the Auditor General, withhold from that portion of the municipal financial assistance trust fund for municipalities which is derived from the cig­arette tax imposed under chapter 210, and which is distributable to such municipality, a sum sufficient to pay the cost of the audit and shall deposit that sum into the General Revenue Fund of the state.

(c) The Auditor General shall exercise any power and duty which by any law, general or otherwise, is now vested in the state auditor or the legislative au­ditor. The Auditor General shall make an annual fi­nancial audit of accounts and records of any other public body or political subdivision when required by law or concurrent resolution to do so.

(d) The Auditor General shall at least every 2 years make a performance audit of the local govern­ment financial reporting system required by this sub­section; ss. 23.0115, 165.091, and 189.001-189.009; and part VII of chapter 112 and part III of chapter 218. The performance audit shall analyze each com­ponent of the reporting system separately and ana­lyze the reporting system as a whole. The purpose of such an audit is to determine the efficiency and effec­tiveness of the reporting system in monitoring and evaluating the financial conditions of local govern­ments and to make recommendations to the local governments, the Governor, and the Legislature as to

When the Auditor General is required by law to make a financial audit of the whole or a portion of a fiscal year of a political subdivision and his current work­load of audits of state agencies and political subdivi­sions is so great that it is not practicable within the required time to perform such audit and also to make financial audits of that political subdivision as to any other period not previously audited by him, then in his discretion he may temporarily or indefinitely postpone his audits of such other period or any por­tion thereof unless otherwise directed by the commit­tee.

(5) The Legislative Auditing Committee may at any time, without regard to whether the Legislature is then in session or out of session, take under investi­gation any matter within the scope of an audit either completed or then being conducted by the Auditor General, and in connection with such investigation may exercise the powers of subpoena by law vested in a standing committee of the Legislature.

(6)(a) The Auditor General may, when in his judgment it is necessary, designate and direct any au­ditor employed by him to audit any accounts or rec­ords within the power of the Auditor General to au­dit. The auditor shall report his findings for review by the Auditor General, who shall prepare the audit report.

(b) The audit report when final shall be a public record. The audit work papers and notes shall not be a public record; however, those work papers neces­sary to support the computations in the final audit report may be made available by a majority vote of the Legislative Auditing Committee after a public hearing showing proper cause. The audit work papers and notes shall be retained by the Auditor General until no longer useful in his proper functions, after which time they may be destroyed.

(c) The audit report shall make special mention of:

1. Any violation of the laws within the scope of the audit; and

2. Any illegal or improper expenditure, any im­proper accounting procedures, all failures to properly record financial transactions, and all other inaccura­cies, irregularities, shortages, and defalcations.

(d) At the conclusion of the audit, the Auditor General or his designated representative shall discuss the audit with the official whose office is subject to audit and submit to him a list of his adverse findings which may be included in the audit report. If the offi­cial is not available for receipt of the list of adverse audit findings, clearly designated as such, then deliv­ery thereof is presumed to be made when it is deliv­ered to his office. The official shall submit to the Au­ditor General or his designated representative, within 20 days after the receipt of the list of findings, his written statement of explanation or rebuttal concern-

74

ing all of the findings, including therein corrective ac­tion to be taken to preclude a recurrence of all ad­verse findings.

(7) A copy of the audit report shall be submitted to each member of the Legislative Auditing Commit­tee, to the Governor, to the Comptroller, and to the officer or person in charge of the state agency or po­litical subdivision audited. One copy shall be filed as a permanent public record in the office of the Audi­tor General. In the case of county reports, one copy of the report of each county office, school district, or other district audited shall be submitted to the board of county commissioners of the county in which the audit was made and shall be filed in the office of the clerk of the circuit court of that county as a public re­cord; when an audit is made of the records of the dis­trict school board, a copy of the audit report shall also be filed with the district school board, and there­upon such report shall become a part of the public records of such board. Copies of such reports may also be furnished such other persons as in the opinion of the Auditor General may be directly interested in the audit or who may have some duty to perform in connection therewith.

(8) If the Auditor General discovers any errors, unusual practices, or any other discrepancies in con­nection with his audits of a state agency or state offi­cer, the Auditor General shall, as soon as practicable, notify in writing the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, respective­ly, who, in turn, shall promptly thereafter forward a copy thereof to the chairmen of the respective legisla­tive committees, which in the judgment of the Presi­dent of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, respectively, are substantially con­cerned with the functions of the state agency or state officer involved. Thereafter, and in no event later than the lOth day of the next succeeding legislative session, the person in charge of the state agency in­volved, or the state officer involved, as the case may be, shall explain in writing to the chairmen of the re­spective legislative committees and to the Legislative Auditing Committee the reasons or justifications for such errors, unusual practices, or discrepancies and the corrective measures, if any, taken by the agency.

(9) All agencies, other than state agencies as de­fined herein, and all district school boards and dis­trict boards of trustees of community colleges shall have the power to have a performance audit or finan­cial audit of their accounts and records by an inde­pendent certified public accountant retained by them and paid from their public funds.

'11.611 Legislative review of advisory bod­ies, commissions, and boards of trustees adjunct to executive agencies.-

(1) This section may be cited as the "Sundown Act."

(2) The Legislature finds it to be in the public in­terest to conduct a periodic and systematic review of the need for, and the benefits derived from, advisory bodies, commissions, and boards of trustees created by specific statutory enactment as adjuncts to execu­tive agencies. The Legislature declares this act to be supplemental to the Regulatory Sunset Act. The Leg­islature finds that:

(a) New advisory bodies, commissions, and boards of trustees adjunct to executive agencies should be created only when they are determined to be essential to the furtherance of public purposes, and their number should be kept to the minimum necessary to achieve those purposes.

(b) Advisory bodies, commissions, and boards of trustees adjunct to executive agencies should be ter­minated by the Legislature when they are no longer essential to the furtherance of public purposes. It is, therefore, incumbent upon the executive agency to

which an advisory body, commission, or board of trustees is adjunct to advise the Legislature at the time the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees ceases to be essential to the furtherance of a public purpose.

(c) The Legislature and the public should be kept informed of the number, purposes, members, activi­ties, and expenses of committees as defined in s. 20.03(8), advisory bodies, commissions, and boards of trustees adjunct to executive agencies.

(d) If a provision of the Florida Statutes sched­uled for repeal by ' s. 1 of chapter 82-46, Laws of Flor­ida, is subsequently amended or transferred, such subsequent amendment or transfer, unless otherwise expressly provided in the act amending or transfer­ring such provision, shall not affect the scheduled re­peal by 2s. 1 of chapter 82-46 of the provision of the Florida Statutes; and such provision, as amended or transferred, shall stand repealed on the date speci­fied in ' s. 1 of chapter 82-46.

(e) If a provision of the Florida Statutes repealed pursuant to this act is also included for repeal pursu­ant to the Regulatory Sunset Act, the Legislature shall conduct a Sundown review of the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees created or reestab­lished by that provision at the same time it conducts the Sunset review of the regulatory function, not­withstanding the date of repeal of the provision cre­ating or reestablishing the advisory body, commis­sion, or board of trustees.

(f) If a provision of the Florida Statutes creating or reestablishing an advisory body, commission, or board of trustees is adjunct to a regulatory function in sections or chapters of the Florida Statutes re­pealed pursuant to the Regulatory Sunset Act, that provision shall be repealed at the same time as the section or chapter relating to the regulatory function to which it is adjunct, notwithstanding the date of the repeal of the provision creating or reestablishing the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees.

(3) As used in this section: (a) "Advisory body" means any entity defined in

s. 20.03(7) or s. 20.03(9), or any group, by whatever name, created by specific statutory enactment as an adjunct to an executive agency to provide advice or recommendations and policy alternatives.

(b) "Commission" means any entity defined in s. 20.03(10), or any group, by whatever name, created by specific statutory enactment within a department, the Office of the Governor, or the Executive Office of the Governor, that exercises limited quasi-legislative or quasi-judicial powers, or both, independently of the head of the department or the Governor.

(c) "Board of trustees" means any entity defined in s. 20.03(12), or any group, by whatever name, cre­ated by specific statutory enactment as an adjunct to a department, the Governor, or the Executive Office of the Governor to administer public property or a public program.

(4) Each provision of the Florida Statutes sched­uled for repeal by 's. 1 of chapter 82-46, Laws of Flor­ida, shall be reviewed pursuant to this section prior to the date scheduled for repeal of the provision. Any act which, as a result of such review, continues or re­establishes an advisory body, commission, or board of trustees established by a provision of the Florida

80

Statutes repealed by ' s. 1 of chapter 82-46 shall schedule the provision of the Florida Statutes estab­lishing such advisory body, commission, or board of trustees for subsequent repeal and for review within 10 years after the effective date of the act which con­tinues or reestablishes such advisory body, commis­sion, or board of trustees.

(5) Any act which creates an advisory body, com­mission, or board of trustees as an adjunct to an exec­utive agency and which is enacted after the effective date of chapter 82-46, Laws of Florida, shall schedule the provision of law establishing such advisory body, commission, or board of trustees for repeal and for review pursuant to this section within 10 years after the effective date of the act which creates such advi­sory body, commission, or board of trustees.

(6) In determining whether to reestablish an ad­visory body, commission, or board of trustees, the Legislature shall consider the following:

(a) Was the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees created to resolve a problem or provide a service?

(b) Has the problem been solved or the service provided?

(c) What has the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees done and what is it doing?

(d) Is the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees operating efficiently and effectively to per­form its task?

(e) Would there be a significant and discernible adverse effect on the executive agency if the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees were abol­ished?

(f) Would there be a significant and discernible adverse effect on the public if the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees were abolished?

(7) An advisory body, commission, or board of trustees shall not be created or reestablished unless:

(a) There is a statutorily defined purpose for the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees.

(b) The powers and responsibilities assigned to the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees conform with the definitions for governmental units ins. 20.03.

(c) All members, unless expressly provided other­wise in the State Constitution, are appointed for 4-year staggered terms.

(d) All members, unless expressly provided oth­erwise by specific statutory enactment, serve without additional compensation or honorarium and are au­thorized to receive only reimbursem*nt for per diem and traveling expenses as provided in s. 112.061.

(8)(a) The private citizen members of an advisory body which is adjunct to an executive agency shall be appointed by the Governor, the head of the depart­ment, the executive director of the department, or a Cabinet officer.

(b) The private citizen members of a commission or board of trustees which is adjunct to an executive agency shall be appointed by the Governor or a desig­nated Cabinet officer, shall be confirmed by the Sen­ate, and shall be subject to the dual officeholding prohibition of s. 5(a), Art. II of the State Constitu­tion.

(10) Within 30 days after the date of repeal by 's. 1 of chapter 82-46, Laws of Florida, of a provision of the Florida Statutes, the records of the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees abolished by such repeal shall be appropriately stored by the exec­utive agency to which the advisory body, commission, or board of trustees was adjunct, and any property assigned to such abolished advisory body, commis­sion, or board of trustees shall be reclaimed by the executive agency. An advisory body, commission, or board of trustees which has been abolished by the re­peal of a provision of the Florida Statutes may not perform any activities after the date of such repeal.

(ll)(a) This act shall not affect the right to insti­tute or prosecute any cause of action by or against an advisory body, commission, or board of trustees abol­ished pursuant to this act if the cause of the action accrued prior to the date the advisory body, commis­sion, or board of trustees was abolished. Any cause of action pending on the date the advisory body, com­mission, or board of trustees is abolished, or institut­ed thereafter, shall be prosecuted or defended in the name of the state by the Department of Legal Af­fairs.

(b) Any repeal or amendment of any statute or rule pursuant to this act shall not affect any prosecu­tion, investigation, or disciplinary action for any act committed before such repeal or amendment.
