  2.  Notwithstanding the provisions of section 33.080 to the contrary, any moneys remaining in the fund at the end of the biennium shall not revert to the credit of the general revenue fund.

  3.  The state treasurer shall invest moneys in the fund in the same manner as other funds are invested.  Any interest and moneys earned on such investments shall be credited to the fund.

  4.  The Show-Me MyRetirement Savings administrative fund shall consist of:

  (1)  Moneys appropriated to the administrative fund by the general assembly;

  (2)  Moneys transferred to the administrative fund from the federal government, other state agencies, or local governments;

  (3)  Moneys from the payment of application, account, administrative, or other fees and the payment of other moneys due to the board;

  (4)  Any gifts, donations, or grants made to the state of Missouri for deposit in the administrative fund;

  (5)  Moneys collected for the administrative fund from contributions to, or investment returns or assets of, the plan or other moneys collected by or for the plan or pursuant to arrangements established under the plan to the extent permitted under federal and Missouri law; and

  (6)  Earnings on moneys in the administrative fund.

  5.  To the extent consistent with ERISA, the tax qualification rules, and other federal law, the board shall accept any grants, gifts, appropriations, or other moneys from the state; any unit of federal, state, or local government; or any other person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other entity solely for deposit into the administrative fund, whether for investment or administrative expenses.

  6.  To enable or facilitate the start-up and continuing operation, maintenance, administration, and management of the program until the plan accumulates sufficient balances and can generate sufficient funding through fees assessed on program accounts for the plan to become financially self-sustaining:

  (1)  The board may borrow from the state of Missouri; any unit of federal, state, or local government; or any other person, firm, partnership, corporation, or other entity working capital funds and other funds as may be necessary for this purpose, provided that such funds are borrowed in the name of the plan and board only and that any such borrowings shall be payable solely from the revenues of the plan; and

  (2)  The board may enter into long-term procurement contracts with one or more financial providers that provide a fee structure that would assist the plan in avoiding or minimizing the need to borrow or to rely upon general assets of the state.

  7.  Subject to appropriation, the state of Missouri may pay administrative costs associated with the creation, maintenance, operation, and management of the plan and trust until sufficient assets are available in the administrative fund for that purpose.  Thereafter, all administrative costs of the administrative fund, including any repayment of start-up funds provided by the state of Missouri, shall be repaid only out of moneys on deposit therein.  However, private funds or federal funding received in order to implement the program until the administrative fund is self-sustaining shall not be repaid unless those funds were offered contingent upon the promise of such repayment.

  8.  The board may use the moneys in the administrative fund solely to pay the administrative costs and expenses of the plan and the administrative costs and expenses the board incurs in the performance of its duties under sections 285.1000 to 285.1055.

  9.  The state treasurer's office shall follow the competitive bids procedure adopted by the office of administration for the following:

  (1)  The contracting or hiring of a contractor with the relevant skills, knowledge, and expertise determined by the board for managing the program, every five years; and

  (2)  At the state treasurer's discretion, the contracting or hiring of a contractor who has qualified staff with the relevant skills, knowledge, and expertise as determined by the state treasurer's office when the number of the participants in the plan reaches fifty thousand participants.



The office of administration is authorized to provide the state treasurer's office with the necessary assistance and services as may be needed.
