(1) In addition to the other purposes for which the Oregon Department of Administrative Services Operating Fund established under ORS 283.076 may be used, the fund hereby is appropriated continuously for and may be used for the purposes of this section and ORS 279A.260. All claims approved by the Oregon Department of Administrative Services for the purposes of this section and ORS 279A.260 shall be paid as provided in ORS 293.295 to 293.462. The department shall draw warrants on the State Treasurer for the payment thereof payable out of the fund. All moneys received under ORS 279A.260 shall be paid by the department to the State Treasurer for credit to the fund.
(2) The Director of the Oregon Department of Administrative Services may distribute in the form of cash dividends accumulated surpluses in the fund that arise because the charges collected from donees are in excess of the amount necessary to keep the activities under this section and ORS 279A.260 on a self-sustaining basis. The director shall pay the cash dividends to the donees referred to in ORS 279A.260 (1). Any dividend paid under this subsection shall be based on the ratio of the charges collected from each donee during the preceding fiscal year to the total charges collected from all donees for the fiscal year immediately preceding the fiscal year in which the dividend is authorized to be paid.
(3) Upon termination by the Governor of the functions of the department under ORS 279A.260, any balance remaining in the fund that is attributable to the activities under this section and ORS 279A.260 shall be refunded pro rata to the donees referred to in ORS 279A.260 (1) upon the basis of the total charges collected from each donee during the preceding fiscal year, unless the director determines that the cost of making the refund is excessive, in which case the unrefunded moneys shall be paid to the Treasurer of the United States.
