    (a) Every pension fund that is required to file an annual statement under Section 1A-109 shall pay to the Department an annual compliance fee. In the case of a pension fund under Article 3 or 4 of this Code, (i) prior to the conclusion of the transition period, the annual compliance fee shall be 0.02% (2 basis points) of the total assets of the pension fund, as reported in the most current annual statement of the fund, but not more than $8,000 and (ii) after the conclusion of the transition period, the annual compliance fee shall be $8,000 and shall be paid by the Consolidated Fund. In the case of all other pension funds and retirement systems, the annual compliance fee shall be $8,000.
    (b) The annual compliance fee shall be due on June 30 for the following State fiscal year, except that the fee payable in 1997 for fiscal year 1998 shall be due no earlier than 30 days following the effective date of this amendatory Act of 1997.
    (c) Any information obtained by the Division that is available to the public under the Freedom of Information Act and is either compiled in published form or maintained on a computer processible medium shall be furnished upon the written request of any applicant and the payment of a reasonable information services fee established by the Director, sufficient to cover the total cost to the Division of compiling, processing, maintaining, and generating the information. The information may be furnished by means of published copy or on a computer processed or computer processible medium.
    No fee may be charged to any person for information that the Division is required by law to furnish to that person.
    (d) Except as otherwise provided in this Section, all fees and penalties collected by the Department under this Code shall be deposited into the Public Pension Regulation Fund.
    (e) Fees collected under subsection (c) of this Section and money collected under Section 1A-107 shall be deposited into the Technology Management Revolving Fund and credited to the account of the Department's Public Pension Division. This income shall be used exclusively for the purposes set forth in Section 1A-107. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 408.2 of the Illinois Insurance Code, no surplus funds remaining in this account shall be deposited in the Insurance Financial Regulation Fund. All money in this account that the Director certifies is not needed for the purposes set forth in Section 1A-107 of this Code shall be transferred to the Public Pension Regulation Fund.
    (f) Nothing in this Code prohibits the General Assembly from appropriating funds from the General Revenue Fund to the Department for the purpose of administering or enforcing this Code.
