Can we award a contract citing two or more of those appropriations for the same end item?
A review of Public Law relating to Coast Guard Acquisition, Construction, and Improvements (AC&I) found that unspecified (not more than $1,000,000) AC&I appropriations are current, "good" for 5 (five) years. Therefore, it appears that any "leftover" funds from previous projects using this appropriation can be used on other unspecified AC&I projects as long as the total does not exceed the $1,000,000 maximum limit for unspecified AC&I appropriations.

We suggest that any questions on the proper use of these funds be coordinated with the appropriate Coast Guard's fiscal management office and legal office.
