3. Written Apportionments. If a program requires an amount different from the total amount automatically apportioned, you must request a written apportionment
Calculating the Automatic Apportionment
Calculate the amount automatically apportioned through the period ending October 16, 2001 (and any extensions of that period) by multiplying the rate (amount) provided by the CR by the lower of:
1. What is the rate (amount) provided by the CR? The rate (amount) provided by the CR could be one of the following annual amounts:
2. Which of the annual amounts do I use?
project or activity meets all the following criteria:
||FY 2001 (the current rate)|
|All other cases||The rate of operations not exceeding the current rate.|
3. Does the continuing resolution affect the availability of funds that would be available if H. J. Res. 65 had not been enacted?
No. The availability of any part of the budgetary resources for an account that is not determined by current action of the Congress (such as permanent appropriations, public enterprise and other revolving funds, reimbursements and other income, and balances of prior year budget authority) are not affected by H. J. Res. 65.
Most of these budgetary resources must be apportioned by OMB before obligation. This Bulletin does not apportion those budgetary resources, except unobligated balances on October 1, 2001, from amounts transferred from the Emergency Response Fund to individual agency accounts pursuant to the determination of the President on September 21, 2001.
