1 The agency rountinely closes out awards that are past the expiration date. Several awards including $4 million in BIO were terminated in FY 2000 due to incorrect award expiration dates. The expiration dates on these awards were corrected later in the year and the awards were reopened and the balances restored. The closing of the awards are reported as recoveries and the reopening of the awards are accounted for as upward adjustments to prior year obligations. This causes obligations to be technically correct but overstated by the amount of the upward adjustments. In the case of BIO, $4 million resulting in a net funding level of $414.33 million in FY 2000 for an increase of $71.09 million in FY 2001.
