Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 39, September 30, 2021

(a) Funding for the estimated cost of investigative, expert, and other services shall be approved by the board before any appointed attorney submits the order to the court for authorization of the services. Funding shall not be approved until the board signs a contract with the service provider for the approved cost as specified in the contract. The contract form provided by the board shall be used. Attorney time spent preparing a contract other than that approved by the board shall not be compensable.

The original contract signed by the service provider and the board shall be maintained by the board. A fully executed copy of this contract shall be returned to the attorney requesting defense services.

(b) Each court order authorizing investigative, expert, or other services for an indigent defendant shall be made on a form approved by the board and shall include an estimate of the cost of those services. Attorney time spent preparing an order form other than that approved by the board shall not be compensable.
(c) If the district court finds, on the record, that timely procurement of necessary services could not await prior authorization by the court, then funding for those necessary services already provided shall be approved by the board.

A copy of the court order shall be sent to the board promptly, after being signed by the judge.
