Funding Decisions

A-Board can choose to make the following decisions on funding:

A-Board can allocate money to each individual item (Requested Allocation Item or RA Item), or allocate as a “lump sum” for an entire event or project (Requested Allocation or RA).

Approve partial funding

A-Board can partially fund items. It can also approve certain items and deny other specific items within a Requested Allocation. A-Board can choose to allocate funds to individual items or to grant a lump sum.
