These funds may also be used to prepare any assessment of hardware and software needs prior to purchase. The Commission may not retain any fees under this section unless they are in excess of the current two-hundred-dollar ($200.00) fee charged by the Commission for filing a compromise settlement.

            SECTION 12.6C.(b) Nothing in this section shall be deemed to limit or restrict the Commission's authority to increase fees for purposes other than those indicated in subsection (a) of this section.

            SECTION 12.6C.(d) All plans and purchases by the Commission utilizing fees retained under subsection (a) of this section are subject to project certification by the Information Resources Management Commission, and the Commission in making purchases under subsection (a) of this section must follow the procurement process outlined in accordance with the provisions of 09 NCAC 06B. 0300. The Commission shall report its plans to replace existing computer hardware and software to the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations and the Fiscal Research Division prior to issuing any requests for proposals.
