74-8111. Annual report, contents, presentation and distribution; program funding levels, evaluation and recommendations; appropriations below threshold levels, effect; audit. (a) The secretary shall publish an annual report which shall include an audit in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles as of June 30 of each year, and present the report to the governor and the legislature setting forth in detail the operations and transactions conducted by the secretary of commerce pursuant to K.S.A. 74-8102 through 74-8104 and 74-8107 through 74-8111, and amendments thereto, or to other legislation. The annual report shall specifically account for the ways in which the purposes and the programs described in K.S.A. 74-8102 through 74-8104 and 74-8107 through 74-8111, and amendments thereto, have been carried out, and the recommendations shall specifically note what changes in the activities of the department and the programs it administers, and of state government are necessary to better address the purposes described in K.S.A. 74-8102 through 74-8104 and 74-8107 through 74-8111, and amendments thereto. The secretary shall distribute its annual report by such means that will make it widely available to those innovative enterprises of special importance to the Kansas economy.

(b) The secretary shall annually review and prepare a report showing how and at what level other states fund the programs provided for under K.S.A. 74-8102 through 74-8104 and 74-8107 through 74-8111, and amendments thereto. The secretary shall recommend an appropriate funding level for Kansas which will make these programs nationally competitive with those of other states. The secretary's findings and recommendations shall be submitted to the governor and the legislature.

(c) The secretary shall adopt a threshold funding level for each of the programs provided for under K.S.A. 74-8102 through 74-8104 and 74-8107 through 74-8111, and amendments thereto. The threshold amount shall provide for funding that is great enough to have a significant impact and carry out the intent of K.S.A. 74-8102 through 74-8104 and 74-8107 through 74-8111, and amendments thereto. If the appropriation to fund these programs falls below the threshold, then no funding shall be provided by the department to the program funded below threshold level.

(d) The secretary and the department shall be subject to an audit by the legislative division of post audit.
