Continuing Resolution Mandate to Identify Accounts for Which Apportionments Differ From the Current Rate, B-300373, December 20, 2002
B-300373, Dec 20, 2002
Current rate is defined by the continuing resolution as having the same meaning given to the term by Office of Management and Budget Bulletin No. 01-10. This amount is multiplied by the lower of. the percentage of the year covered by the continuing resolution (the prorata rate). Was not apportioned in accordance with the continuing resolution. NSF advised that this was necessary to permit them to meet payroll. For six accounts OMB provided a written higher apportionment (two of the accounts were apportioned at higher than the seasonal rate but lower than the prorata rate). For most of the other accounts the apportionments were on a prorata basis. For seven accounts the current rate is inapplicable for various reasons (see Appendix I of enclosure).
