The receipt and deposit of contributions to the trust fund;


The authorization of expenditures and disbursements from the trust fund;


The filing of quarterly statements required under ORS 244.217 (Statement of contributions received and expenditures made); and


The performance of other tasks incident to the administration of the trust fund.
