16E.15 SOFTWARE SALES.

Subdivision 1.Authorization.

The chief information officer may sell or license computer software products or services developed by state agencies or custom developed by a vendor, through whatever sales method the chief information officer considers appropriate. Prices for the software products or services may be based on market considerations.

Subd. 2.Software sale fund.

(a) Except as provided in paragraphs (b) and (c), proceeds from the sale or licensing of software products or services by the chief information officer must be credited to the MN.IT services revolving fund. If a state agency other than the Office of MN.IT Services has contributed to the development of software sold or licensed under this section, the chief information officer may reimburse the agency by discounting computer services provided to that agency.

(b) Proceeds from the sale or licensing of software products or services developed by the Pollution Control Agency, or custom developed by a vendor for the agency, must be credited to the environmental fund.

(c) If the Department of Transportation develops software products or services using trunk highway funds, proceeds from the subsequent sale or licensing of the software products or services must be credited to the trunk highway fund. This paragraph also applies to software products or services custom developed by a vendor for the department using trunk highway funds.
