acronym XYZ is generic for a place, a site like a central office for a city, so there could be an XYZ in Columbus, Oberlin, Dublin Ohio.

In the sentence:

You can set guidelines for XYZs with...

How do you actually write it out? (as in any or all XYZ) or how do you write out a plural acronym if its not possessive. IS that possessive?.

How would you say: the budget for the XYZs

or - the XYZ's budgets ?

any of those correct usage incorrect - is there a guideline?
