*Comptroller General Decision:
The requirements for the use of end-of-year funds are provided in the Federal Acquisition Regulation Section 52-216-22 (1997). As outlined by the Comptroller General Decision B-238940, “Proper Fiscal Year Appropriation to Charge for Expenses Relating to Nonseverable Training Course (February 25, 1991),” training is an appropriate use for these end-of-year funds. The Comptroller General allows current-year funds to pay for a current year need even if it is “delivered” (completed) in the following fiscal year.
