Is there some reason that the CICS program MUST access 3 generations of the gdg?
From what you've described, it may be more straight-forward to have a scheduled batch process that runs each quarter to create a file with the data from the needed 3 months. That file could then be used in CICS. If you made this a vsam file multiple CICS users could access it easily.
