The State Information District boundaries shall coincide with

(2) all organized boroughs; and
(3) all rural educational attendance areas.
Census subarea 1783 (Skagway) shall be used as a boundary
until such time it is subsumed within one of the above categories.
By June 30, 1981, the Department of Natural Resources shall
issue a map at a scale which accurately depicts these boundaries
and also provide a metes and bounds description, utilizing latitude
and longitude as points to the extent practicable.
To the extent that the use of State Information Districts
for reporting purposes will result in significant expense or
inefficiency within state government, their use will be excused
by the Division of Budget and Management.
The Division of Policy Development and Planning is designated
the lead agency to implement this order, and to ensure that the
system for developing and reporting information is consistent
throughout the executive branch, it is authorized and directed
to supervise the development of the system in each agency and
coordinate the development of the system between agencies, beginning
no later than May 1, 1981, and ending no later than May 1, 1982.
Beginning with the budget for fiscal year 1983, agency program
and financial plans prepared under AS 37.07.050 and agency performance
reports prepared under AS 37.07.090 shall be prepared so as to
locate programs and expenditures with reference to the boundaries
established by this order; however, except as they would otherwise
do so, agencies are not required to prepare budgets, programs,
or objectives on the basis of these boundaries.
This administrative order takes effect immediately.
