Notes:
1. In the normal course of business, total obligations for a fiscal year originally include an estimate of actual costs that will materialize for contracts and agreements that have been programmed to occur by the end of the fiscal year. As performance is completed and invoices received , validated and paid, an adjustment is made to obligations totals for the year. Adjustments are made on a monthly basis. Total obligations for fiscal year 2001 were originally estimated at $544.0 million. As of September 30, 2004, adjustments based on cancellations and actual performance have changed the original estimated amount to this revised total. Approximately $2 million has yet to be validated.

2. The majority of spending from the Assets Forfeiture Fund occurs for normal operating expenses of the asset forfeiture program and for certain expressly authorized investigative expenses. Authorization legislation for the Fund also permits the Attorney General to use excess balances, if any, that accrue in the Fund from the prior fiscal year operations, for any federal law enforcement, litigative/prosecutive, and correctional activity, or any other authorized purpose of the Department of Justice. Excess balances are not guaranteed every year. Also, such use of excess balances is subject to notification to Congress.
