party, the Secretary shall pay to such candidates out of the Fund the amount certified
by the Commission. Amounts paid to a candidate shall be under the control of that candidate.
(b)(1) If at the time of a certification from the Commission under 11 CFR 9005.1, the Secretary determines that the monies in the Fund are not, or may not be, sufficient
to satisfy the full entitlements of the eligible candidates of all political parties,
he or she shall withhold an amount which is determined to be necessary to assure that
the eligible candidates of each political party will receive their pro rata share.

a deficiency in the Fund as provided under 11 CFR 9005.2(b)(1). In the case of a deficiency, the candidate may establish a separate account for
payments from the Fund or may deposit such payments with contributions received pursuant
to 11 CFR 9003.3(b). The account(s) shall be maintained at a State bank, federally chartered depository
institution or other depository institution, the deposits or accounts of which are
insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

generated through use of public funds in accordance with 11 CFR 9004.5, shall be deposited in the account described in 11 CFR 9005.2(c). “Reimbursements” shall include, but are not limited to, refunds of deposits, vendor
