3. Commitments: The following directions apply:
A. It is the responsibility of each unit to provide a complete,
actionable PR package to the procurement and contracting officer.
B. Each unit must review each commitment that is over 30 days old for
validity; commitments no longer needed must be de-committed.
C. It is the Program Manager's responsibility to contact the appropriate
contracting officer to ensure a contract/order/MIPR is obligated prior
to the end of the fiscal year.
D. Open commitments will be systematically canceled/reversed on
30 SEP 22 at 2400 EDT.
4. Unfunded Order Requirements: If a reimbursable agreement will not
be in place prior to the beginning of new fiscal year, Programs must
submit a temporary use of fund request via memorandum to the CG-835
Reimbursable Program Manager for approval. The memo must request
budget authority for distribution to required R-POETs in the absence
of a funding document (from a customer). Programs should encourage
the ordering agency/customer to provide Funded Orders (FS Form 7600-B)
as soon as possible in the first quarter or soon after the ordering
agency Departmental Appropriations Act becomes Public Law. Regardless
of a Funded Order or an Unfunded Order, all commitments, obligations
and expenses shall be recorded in appropriate reimbursable accounts

30 SEP 22 at 2359 HRS EDT.

(4) Initial obligations determined to be invalid.

centralized holding account and/or centralized obligation document
(common in BPR Tier I units) shall reduce associated obligations in
CLM appropriately prior to FY closeout in order to prevent redundant
D. In an effort to clear any outstanding obligations and finalize
all open items, it is the responsibility of the field units or
servicing BPR Regional Support Team (as appropriate) to contact
vendors and request submission of all outstanding invoices.
6. Per REF D, Units and Allotment Code Holders should target the
following spenddown rates by 15 SEP 22: at 100% for all allotment
codes facilitated by CG-83.
7. The Project and Task Status of Funds report will be used to
determine spend down rates. During previous FYs, CG-83 has
demonstrated a willingness to be flexible with units not meeting
spend down targets providing an adequate plan was in place to
execute funding. Due to the nature of FSMS and budgetary constraints,
the 15 SEP 22 cutoff date will be strictly enforced. The below
link is a helpful tool that will consolidate all projects under a
chosen allotment code:
8. The above discussion does not apply to energy distributions.
Due to energy price fluctuations, energy distributions will be on a
monthly basis beginning in Q4 (REF D).
9. Allotment code budget officers should coordinate directly with
PPA managers to ensure any needed balances are available in cases
of known balance errors in the new system. While the spending cutoff
dates will be strictly enforced this year, allotment code budget
officers can contact their PPA manager if they have exceptional
circumstances that are impacting their balances. CG-83 worked in
conjunction with FINCEN to ensure that utility obligations and GV
obligations are sufficient to cover the remainder of the FY prior
to the 25 JUL 22 cutoff date. If these efforts are not effective,
remaining required balances for utilities and GVs will be taken
into account prior to funds being swept (REF D).
10. If you are aware of any unneeded funds, please work with your
respective financial managers to facilitate returning the funds
11. ETS/E2 Solutions Travel Authorizations & Travel Vouchers:
For deferred travel or travel which starts in FY22, travelers
should submit a travel voucher for FY22 expenses incurred as
soon as possible. The deadline for entering travel
authorizations/obligations in ETS is 15 SEP 22. Travelers and
approving officials are responsible for verifying that
claimed expenses are posted to the proper FY POET based
on the following guidance:
A. Airfare - post to FY in which travel began
B. Rental Car - post to FY in which travel began

D. Parking - post to FY in which charges were incurred

(O&S) appropriation, purchase card purchases will be charged
to the FY based on the purchase or order date of the transaction.
13. Utilities: Utility costs are charged to the FY in which the

01 OCT 22 or later, then FY23 funds should be charged.

should be charged to FY23. The units will have to follow
guidance to establish FY23 obligations for services.

the FY in which the purchase is approved.
