67-2739. Designation of depository — Reporting of capital and surplus. (1) The state treasurer shall designate institutions qualified under this chapter as a state depository or depositories. Such designation shall be determined by competitive bidding or by other means generally accepted as standard business practice. In no case shall the deposit or deposits of state funds in any state depository above the total covered by federal insurance exceed at any one time, in the aggregate, the total of the capital and surplus of such state depository. In the event that any bank has been designated as a depository under this chapter, such designation shall continue in force until revoked by the treasurer.
(2) Every banking corporation or national banking association designated as a state depository and holding any deposit of the funds of the state of Idaho under the provisions of this section shall, on or before beginning to hold such deposits or the effective date of this act, whichever shall be sooner, file with the state treasurer, the affidavit of one of its officers showing the amount of the capital stock and surplus of such association or corporation. In the event that such corporation or association has such an affidavit on file with the state treasurer on the effective date of this act, such affidavit or affidavits shall satisfy the requirement of this section until January 31 of the year next following the effective date of this act. Affidavits shall be effective for the purposes of this section for a period of one (1) year following the date of their filing. If such corporation or association is to continue as a designated state depository under this section, a like affidavit shall be filed in like manner for the succeeding year, on or before the date specified by the state treasurer. No such corporation or national banking association shall receive deposits from nor act as depository for the funds of the state of Idaho unless and until an affidavit as is herein required and which still continues in effect is on file with the state treasurer in accordance with this section.
(3) The state treasurer is authorized in his or her discretion and from time to time to negotiate for the payment to designated state depositories of reasonable compensation for services rendered in acting as such depositories. The method and/or rate of such compensation and the terms and conditions thereof shall be fixed by the state treasurer after such negotiation, which may include the calling for bids for specific services. All bids received, whether by a formal bidding process or by negotiation, and the compensation fixed by the treasurer, which shall be in the form of a written agreement, shall be a matter of public record.
