(1) The provisions of ORS 291.234 (Department to make allotments to state officers and agencies of appropriations and funds) to 291.260 (Approving, modifying or disapproving requests and budgets to be submitted to the federal government) relating to the allotment system shall apply to all appropriations for state officers and agencies. For this purpose "appropriation" includes standing, continuing and annual appropriations, and dedicated funds. In those cases where periodical allotments are impracticable, the Oregon Department of Administrative Services may dispense therewith and prescribe such regulations as will insure proper application and encumbering of funds.
