(b) During the period from July 2003, to June 2007, inclusive, on a monthly basis, the department shall provide the Administrative Office of the Courts with a forecast of the monthly inflation index figures specified in Section 70355, using a methodology mutually agreed upon by the department, Administrative Office of the Courts, and California State Association of Counties. This forecast may be used to make a preliminary determination of the county facility payment based on the proposed and final month of transfer.
(c) The department shall provide the Administrative Office of the Courts with the final revised inflation index figures specified in Section 70355 when the final data is available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index.

(d) Notwithstanding subdivision (c) of Section 70353, any change in the final county facilities payment made pursuant to subdivision (c) shall be reflected as an adjustment to the schedule of county facilities payments at the beginning of the next fiscal year. In addition, any over or underpayment resulting from the difference between the final calculation made pursuant to subdivision (c) and the county facility payment calculation made at the time of transfer shall be reflected as a one-time adjustment to the amount of the first county facility payment owed at the beginning of the next fiscal year.
