Generally speaking, it also means at the appropriate (scheduled) time, especially in business correspondence.
Anonymous:It is a wordy way of saying "timely" or "in good time" meaning "by the time I requested." The word "timely" means the same, but takes fewer words. I call this "bureaucrat-ese" because this sort of bloviating seems to proliferate in governmental or quasi-governmental environments.
