Denali Commission--Amounts Available for Bulk Fuel Storage Tanks
B-323365: Aug 6, 2014
- Full Report:
The Denali Commission (Denali) receives an annual lump-sum appropriation to be used for expenses to carry out its energy-related mission. Denali also receives statutorily directed annual transfers from the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund (OSLTF) to repair and replace bulk fuel storage tanks, as well as grants from the Rural Utility Service (RUS) to acquire, construct, upgrade, and otherwise improve energy generation, transmission and distribution facilities. The statutorily directed transfers from the OSLTF and grants from the RUS supplement Denali's annual lump-sum appropriation. Where an appropriation is available for a particular purpose and additional amounts are statutorily transferred from other accounts to assist in carrying out that same purpose, the additional amounts are treated as supplementing the agency's appropriation absent language to the contrary.
