Capital Funds Request Prioritization
Notice of Proposed Rule
DAR File No.: 32936
Filed: 09/02/2009 08:35:31 AM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
The purpose of this rule is to establish the procedure regarding annual capital grant request prioritization by the State Library Division within the Department of Community and Culture.
Summary of the rule or change:
This rule implements the provisions of Section 9-7-205, as amended by H.B. 236 2009 General Session, by establishing submission requirements and review criteria related to applications for capital facilities grants. (DAR NOTE: H.B. 236 (2009) is found at Chapter 62, Laws of Utah 2009, and was effective 05/12/2009.)
State statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Section 9-7-205
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
State Library Division: potential cost may approximate 100 man-hours = $3,000
Local Library Staff potential cost may approximate 5 man-hours per agency = $600. Other Agencies: Local legal representative (i.e., city or county attorney) potential cost may approximate 5 man-hours per agency = $1,250
Small Business potential costs may approximate 5 man-hours = $500
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
Only municipal and county libraries may apply to the State Library Division for capital facilities grants. Therefore, this rule does not apply to persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local government entities.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
Since this capital facilities grant applicant program is new, directed impact on participants is difficult to determine. However, tasks required to complete a grant application form include, but are not necessarily limited to: expend time answering questions on the form related to the specific capital project in terms of basic applicant information; project details including plan of work and supplies; labor costs; and funding sources. Total time to complete the application form by just the applicant may approximate 5 man-hours.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
The cost of compliance with the new rule is in terms of man-hours of labor for the State Library Division, and local library staff required to review and prepare the documentation for compliance with the rule. Participation in this grant program is voluntary; therefore compliance costs are not mandated by the state statute upon any agency or entity, except the State Library Division, and Department of Community and Culture, thus there is no directed impact on private businesses resulting from this rule.
