I was reading
and specifically that this particular ticket was discussed at FAmSCo.
What is the SOP that is in place for APAC and who is the point person
for approval of monies related to budget requests?

Do you need a SOP for this? I am not aware if there is any SOP in other
regions, I know EMEA has a sort of guideline to handle budget request based
on the amount requested, but there is not much more.
Normally it's up to the Region to handle funding requests, this can be done
during meetings or, if there are not enough regional ambassadors around, by
voting in the ticket. This is enough in mostly all situations.
It seems this time APAC was not able to hold any meeting for some time and
even ticket voting was not successful. FAmSCo has been asked exceptionally
to chime in and to discuss the ticket by approving or rejecting it, as
there were only a few days left until the event.
That is was happened, and it has been done to make the Release Party
happen, despite any SOP or whatever. Sometimes rules are good, sometimes
they will block us from making good things. And I think it was worth to
make this RP happen, there was budget for it and the location was good.
