Unexpended (Uncosted) Balances


Budget authority obligated but not costed representing a portion of contract obligations for goods and services that have not yet been received. Unexpended obligations are part of doing business and play a key role in budget formulation and execution cycles supporting continuity of operations at the beginning of the year. Unexpended balances must be reviewed thoroughly to ensure that they remain at levels consistent with sound fiscal management. See the DOE Accounting Handbook, Chapter 5.
