California Government Code
(a) Within 30 days after the Administrative Office of the Courts has mailed the county the approved county facilities payment, pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 70363, the county may submit a declaration to the Court Facilities Dispute Resolution Committee, with the mailing of copies to the other parties, that the amount is incorrect for one or more of the following reasons:
(1) Expenditure data is reported incorrectly or calculated incorrectly and causes an approved county facilities payment amount that is higher than the payment should be.
(2) The approved county facilities payment includes amounts that were specifically appropriated, funded, and expended by the county to fund extraordinary one-time expenditures. Extraordinary one-time expenditures do not include periodic major facility repair or maintenance including, but not limited to, reroofing or replacement of a major system component. Extraordinary one-time expenditures do include, but are not limited to, abatement of asbestos and seismic structural upgrades.
(3) The approved county facilities payment includes expenses funded from grants or subventions that would not have been funded without these grants or subventions.
(b) The Administrative Director of the Courts shall mail comments to the Court Facilities Dispute Resolution Committee on the county’s declaration within 30 days of the mailing of the county’s declaration, with the mailing to the other parties.
(c) Within 90 days of receipt of comments pursuant to subdivision (b), the Court Facilities Dispute Resolution Committee shall review the declarations and comments received, and make its recommendation to the Director of Finance concerning correction of any errors and, if necessary, adjustment of the amount of the county facilities payment. The Court Facilities Dispute Resolution Committee shall mail a copy of its recommendation to all the parties.
(d) The Director of Finance or his or her designee shall review the recommendations of the Court Facilities Dispute Resolution Committee and make his or her determination concerning any correction of errors and, if necessary, adjustment of the amount of the county facilities payment.
