The Executive will now discuss the Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI) at Wednesday's meeting.
The UUP accused officials of a "head in the sand" approach after it emerged the controversy over the RHI was not on the formal agenda on Tuesday night, sparking fears it would be January before the matter would be discussed.
However, The Executive Office now says the matter will be discussed at its final meeting before Christmas.
It is likely the matter will be raised under 'any other business'.
The RHI was meant to cut the cost of environmentally friendly energy to encourage people to move away from fossil fuels. Instead, it ended up landing ministers with an enormous overspend.
The scheme incentivised the installation of costly eco-friendly heating systems by paying a tariff per kilowatt of heat burned over a 20-year period. But unlike in the rest of the UK, no cap or tiered payment system was placed on the money that could be claimed.
The result was the RHI tariff paid out more than the cost of fuel needed to run boilers, meaning that the more fuel businesses burned, they more they earned in return.
Thousand of applicants signed up to the RHI in a deluge that ultimately forced its closure, but not before Stormont had been left with a huge future bill.
Overall, more than £1bn of public money will be paid by 2036 to Northern Ireland-based businesses that signed up to the scheme.
A DUP special advisor is facing calls to quit after the party revealed to Sunday Life that his farmer brother is benefiting from the disastrous Renewable Heat Initiative (RHI) which is set to cost local taxpayers £400m.
Arlene Foster has pledged "100% inspections" of those claiming from the botched Renewable Heating Incentive to ensure they operated within "the spirit of the scheme" saying she has nothing to hide over her role in the development of the project.
Northern Ireland's block grant could be hit for hundreds of millions of pounds over the next 20 years because of Stormont's failure to control a renewable energy scheme, it has been revealed.
The establishment of a renewable heat scheme was the right thing to do. Supporters of renewable energy and others were telling me at that time it did not go far enough.
One of the whistleblowers at the centre of the botched £400m renewable heating scheme has said it was obvious to her and many others that the programme was "too good to be true" and asked how government officials could not see it.
Northern Ireland's reputation as a place that enjoys a huge benefits culture, largely thanks to its disproportionate level of DLA claims, suffers another blow in a damning Audit Office report which revealed that fraudsters cheated the public purse out of a staggering £45m last year.
