18A:72A-68 Financing of matching amounts.
10. a. To finance the matching amounts for institutions of higher education which have received grants from the technology fund, the authority may from time to time issue bonds or notes in an amount sufficient to finance the purchase of higher education technology infrastructure pursuant to agreements with public and private institutions of higher education and to finance the administrative costs associated with the issuance of bonds or notes. The authority shall issue the bonds or notes in such manner as it shall determine in accordance with the provisions of P.L.1997, c.238 (C.18A:72A-59 et seq.) and the "New Jersey educational facilities authority law," N.J.S.18A:72A-1 et seq. The bonds or notes issued pursuant to this section shall be repaid by the institutions of higher education from any available funds, except grant funds provided to the institution of higher education pursuant to this act.
b. The authority shall require that if an institution of higher education fails or is unable to pay to the authority in full, when due, any obligation of the institution to the authority, an amount sufficient to satisfy the deficiency shall be retained by the State Treasurer from State aid or an appropriation payable to the institution and paid to the authority. As used in this subsection, "obligation of the institution" means any amount payable by the institution for technology infrastructure pursuant to an agreement with the authority.
c. The amount retained by the State Treasurer shall be deducted from the corresponding appropriation or apportionment of State aid payable to the institution of higher education and shall not obligate the State to make, nor entitle the institution to receive, any additional appropriation or apportionment.
