[atrt2] FW: Message from Brian Cute - ATRT2 Chair

Hello all,

I'm sorry, I do not understand this thread.

This year the budget process had early fast track approvals in
March/April for any projects due to take place before October 213 and
then normal track approvals which should have been adopted by end of
June but with a delayed budget got approved in August.
So SO/AC costs that come up early in the FY (in July, August &
September) already go into a fast track.

Kind regards,

There must be a better way of approving costs that are early in the FY. Alternatively, there should be an absolute "NO" to trying to do things in panic after the budget/cost is approved.
