On or about Tuesday, February 9, the Executive Office for Administration and Finance will process the seventh periodic allotment of FY2021 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 FY21 has been published on the A&F intranet.

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 and 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.
