If provision is made by law of the United States for the administration by public agencies of this state of federal appropriations for the welfare of the Indians in this state, such state agencies may administer the expenditure of such federal appropriations within the scope of their legal powers.

The State Department of Health Services shall administer the expenditure of all such federal appropriations for the care and hospitalization of, and for medical attention to, sick or injured Indians and for the control and prevention of communicable and infectious diseases and general sanitation among the Indians in this state.

The State Department of Education shall administer the expenditure of such federal appropriations for the construction and maintenance of schools and the education of the Indians in this state.

The State Department of Social Services shall administer the expenditure of such federal appropriations for the relief of aged, infirm, and indigent Indians in this state.

Subject to such limitations as the law of the United States or the Secretary of the Interior lawfully imposes upon the administration of such funds, the state departments above mentioned may expend the same for the purposes within their respective jurisdictions which the respective heads of the departments deem best to conserve the interests and welfare of all the Indians residing within the state.

8201.
  

If the law of the United States requires the submission of budgets to the Secretary of the Interior or to any other federal agency before federal funds may be expended the state agencies may prepare budgets showing the amounts necessary during each year to carry out the purposes for which such federal appropriations are made, and shall submit such budgets when prepared to the State Department of Finance, who shall coordinate the same so far as possible and approve them before they are forwarded to the federal agency charged with receiving them. Thereafter the state agencies shall account directly to the federal disbursing and auditing officers for the expenditures of federal funds made subject to their administration, and the officers and employees of each department shall be responsible upon their official bonds to the federal disbursing and auditing officers for a proper accounting for all funds so disbursed.
