That error occurs when the database failed to allocate an extent of the required number of blocks for a temporary segment in the tablespace indicated.
Change the user's default tablespace to a bigger one  or get your dba to increase the size of the TEMP tablespace.

can you paste an "explain plan" for this statement..  more often than not, you have enough TEMP space and you are trying to do some BIG "sort"
plus, how big are pa_expenditure_items_all and pa_events..  if they're small,
      consider the this
   and (pa.project_id in  (select project_id
                           from pa_expenditure_items_all)
        or pa.project_id in (select project_id
                             FROM pa_events)
       )
