SECTION 2. Appropriations for fiscal year 2013 are set out herein below.

SECTION 2B. Notwithstanding any general or special law to the contrary, the agencies listed in this section may expend the amounts listed in this section for the provision of services to agencies listed in section 2. All expenditures made pursuant to this section shall be accompanied by a corresponding transfer of funds from an account listed in section 2 to the Intragovernmental Service Fund, established by section 2Q of chapter 29 of the General Laws. All revenues and other inflows shall be based on rates published by the seller agency that are developed in accordance with cost principles established by the United States Office of Management and Budget Circular A-87, "Cost Principles for State, Local and Indian Tribal Governments." All rates shall be published within 30 days of the enactment of this section. No expenditures shall be made from the Intragovernmental Service Fund, which would cause that fund to be in deficit at the close of fiscal year 2013. All authorizations in this section shall be charged to the Intragovernmental Service Fund and shall not be subject to section 5D of chapter 29 of the General Laws. Any balance remaining in that fund at the close of fiscal year 2013 shall be transferred to the General Fund.

SECTION 2D. The amounts set forth in this section are hereby appropriated from the General Federal Grants Fund. Federal funds received in excess of the amount appropriated in this section shall be expended only in accordance with section 6B of chapter 29 of the General Laws. The amount of any unexpended balance of federal grant funds received before June 30, 2012, and not included as part of an appropriation item in this section, is hereby made available for expenditure during fiscal year 2013, in addition to any amount appropriated in this section.
