Allocation Account

This is a type of Treasury Account Symbol that is used to receive (and subsequently obligate and disburse) allocations treated as non-expenditure transactions. These accounts carry symbols identified with the original appropriation from which monies were advanced. An allocation account is symbolized by adding the receiving agency's two-digit department regular code to the original appropriation or fund account symbol. A bureau suffix identifies that the transfer is to a particular office or bureau within the receiving department. For example, 14 20X1234.010 represents a transfer of funds that was initially appropriated to Department 20 (Department of The Treasury) and allocated to Bureau 10 (National Park Service) within Department 14 (Department of The Interior).
