CHAPTER 777

HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION No. 5

REQUIRING ALL STATE AGENCIES AND DEPARTMENTS TO RECEIVE REIMBURSEMENT FOR THE FULL COST OF GOODS AND SERVICES PROVIDED.

WHEREAS, it has come to the attention of the members of the 125th General Assembly that various State agencies and departments have not been reimbursed for the full cost of providing goods and services; and

WHEREAS, it is the desire of the members of the 125th General Assembly that all State agencies and departments receive reimbursement for the full cost of goods and services provided, when it is in the best interest of the State of Delaware.

NOW, THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED, by the members of the 125th General Assembly of the State of Delaware, that all State agencies and departments which provide goods and services to any State agency, State department, subdivision of the State, or to any corporation, partnership or similar business organization, shall be reimbursed a sum which shall be not less than the full cost of such goods and services provided.

"Full cost" is defined as purchase or "out-of-pocket" cost plus overhead cost plus capital investment cost computed in accordance with accepted business practice.

This Resolution shall not be construed to require any State agency or department to be reimbursed for the full cost of any goods or services provided if the Governor shall indicate to the said agency or department that such reimbursement for the full cost of goods and services provided is not in the best interest of the State of Delaware.

Approved May 15, 1969.
