Periodic and ad hoc allotments

Periodic allotment On or about February 10, 2020, the Executive Office for Administration and Finance (A&F) processed the fifth periodic allotment of FY2020 to increase the expenditure ceiling in budgetary accounts to 83.33% (a two-month allotment) for all accounts that are subject to the Governor's allotment authority. The periodic allotment calendar for FY2020 will run bi-monthly and has been published on the A&F intranet. Ad hoc allotment As outlined in the calendar, A&F will also continue to run ad hoc allotments every other Tuesday if necessary. Please also be sure to email your A&F analyst upon submission of ad hoc requests. Please allow time as needed for Secretariat approval of all submissions. Ad hoc allotment requests that are approved at the Secretariat level and visible to A&F in MMARS by the Wednesday prior to the ad hoc run will be reviewed by A&F analysts for the following Tuesday.
