The sponsor's administrative fee does not include costs incurred in delivering services that a charter school may purchase at its discretion from the sponsor, however, a sponsor is prohibited from selling services to schools over which the sponsor has oversight. This does not prohibit a school or a sponsor from purchasing services from a statewide contract or any other approved collective purchasing agreement. A sponsor shall post on its website, in a conspicuous location, any services that may be purchased by schools and the cost of the services. The sponsor's fee is not applicable to federal money or grants received by the charter school. The sponsor shall use its funding provided pursuant to this proviso exclusively for the purpose of fulfilling sponsor obligations in accordance with applicable charter school law./
