I got the impression at the call we had with Ruth that there's also a
half-year checkpoint now where things should be spent by the end of
August. Did I misunderstand that?
That said, we _don't_ want to lose it when we get to the either that
point or the end overall, so the quarterly checkpoints give us an
opportunity to re-allocate. If the region doesn't have a specific good
use for unspent funds at that point, we can apply it to somewhere that
does (either a need in another region or a non-regional request).
