FY2016 Feb BUDG25 Reports Posted (DAA note)

The FY 2016 February BUDG25 reports are posted and the Adjusted DAA includes the final DAA reductions.  Disregard the DAA adjustment and Total DAA Allocation on page 5 of the currently posted APOR 55-1 (run date 1/21/2016)

There was a quirk in the DAA calculations on the APOR 55-1. This will be corrected on the March 1st payment, as it was too late to correct the February payment.  HOWEVER, preliminary March APOR 55-1 were ran but not posted in order that the Budget Capacity on the February BUDG25 accurately reflects the adjusted DAA for the district
