The Center of Disease Control ordered $11 million worth of antibiotics. Where are they going? FEMA Region lll. When are they due? October 1st.

I have a question, regarding the Financial year end, that is also in October.
People are saying that is why the government is spending all the money now, with everything to be delivered by October first. Ok, I get that and yes it makes sense.
But why are they spending so much money on things, and sending the majority of it to Region III?
Why wouldn't you divide it between all the regions?
