Effective Date of Delegation/Designation

The date from which the Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) calculates the period (normally two years) until the delegation or designation expires. It is the latter of the effective date requested by the agency on the form or the date Fiscal Service accepts the form. For example, if the agency requests an effective date of March 5, 2020, and Fiscal Service actually accepts the form on March 9, 2020, the effective date would be March 9, 2020. If the agency requests an effective date of May 20, 2020, and Fiscal Service accepts the form on May 5, 2020, the actual effective date would be May 20, 2020.
