B. The appropriate agency head shall have the authority to adopt a program of the temporary interchange of state employees not classified, between any other state and its agencies and departments, counties, municipalities and the federal government and its agencies.

C. The interchange of any employees from the sending agency to the receiving agency shall be subject to the prior approval of the sending agency and no employee shall be so interchanged without the approval of the sending agency.

D. No detail of an employee under the provisions herein shall be in excess of twenty-four months in any forty-eight month period and must be with the employee's consent.

E. Any employee who is on detail shall receive such salary and expenses as may be fixed by the receiving agency and shall be under the supervision of the receiving agency. Any employee so detailed shall for the purposes of retirement benefits, insurance coverages, and other employee benefits continue to be considered as an employee of the sending agency provided he elects to do so. In case of such election, his contributions to the state retirement system, insurance programs and other such employee annuities shall be on the same basis as any other state employee of like status. The receiving agency or the employee shall be responsible for all such contributions to the appropriate agency of the sending state for which the sending agency would normally be responsible.
