GUSD Input Conduit Management

If this executive proposal passes, the following actions will be taken to push the remaining GUSD out of the PSM_GUSD_INPUT_CONDUIT_JAR, exchange it for Dai, and add it to the Surplus Buffer:

  1. Raise Debt Ceiling of PSM_GUSD_A to 597,660 DAI - accounting for the GUSD rewards and the remaining 0.91 DAI debt still present in the vault.
  2. Call push(uint256 amt) on the PSM_GUSD_A_INPUT_CONDUIT_JAR contract with an amt of 597,659, depositing the contents of the contract to the PSM and receiving an identical amount of Dai into the PSM_GUSD_A_JAR contract.
  3. Call void on the PSM_GUSD_A_JAR contract to deposit the Dai to the Surplus Buffer.
  4. Decrease Debt Ceiling of PSM_GUSD_A back to 0 DAI.

This will have the following net results:

  1. Debt Ceiling remains at 0 after the transaction has executed.
  2. Dai minted from PSM_GUSD_A increases to 597,659.91 DAI.
  3. GUSD balance of MCD_JOIN_PSM_GUSD_A increases to 597,659.91 GUSD.
  4. GUSD balance of PSM_GUSD_A_INPUT_CONDUIT_JAR decreases to 0 GUSD.
  5. Surplus Buffer increases by 597,659 DAI.
