Question description

An agency has single-year, multi-year and no-year appropriations.  On October 15, 2014, the agency tried to create several transactions.  Is the agency authorized (allowed legally) for the following?  Why or why not?  Please list YES or NO for each of the following item, and then list your reasons.  (e.g., YES, this is allowable because XYZ...)

(25 POINTS)

1) For a single year appropriation from 2014 (Beginning Budget Fiscal Year 2014), could the agency enter into a new obligation starting on October 20, 2014?  The appropriation has sufficient funding to pay for the obligation, and the expense is for a category listed in the appropriation. 

2) For a multi-year appropriation, 2014 – 2015 (Beginning Budget Fiscal Year 2014, Ending Budget Fiscal Year 2015), could the agency start a new obligation starting on October 20, 2014?  The obligation would be for goods/services that would cost more than the amount remaining in the appropriation. 

3) For a no-year appropriation, could the agency start a new obligation starting on October 24, 2014?  The obligation would be for goods/services that would be a use listed in the appropriation, and would not be above the amount remaining on the appropriation. 

4) For a single-year appropriation, could the agency pay for an invoice dated October 5, 2014, for an obligation that had been signed on September 20, 2014?  The obligation would be for goods/services that would be a use listed in the appropriation, and would not be above the amount remaining on the appropriation. 

5) For a no-year appropriation, could the agency start a new obligation starting on October 24, 2014?  The obligation would be for goods/services that would not be for an item listed in the appropriation (e.g., the appropriation is for new technology services, and the expenses is for new vehicles that will not help the technology services), and would not be above the amount remaining on the appropriation.
