The financing section shows the fund sources, new obligational authority, appropriation, and other means of financing the program, and the disposition of amounts not used during the year.

The third section of the schedule (illustrated below) shows receipts and other offsets (if any) to total obligations shown in the program section, obligated balances at the start and end of the year, and other items which affect the relation of obligations to expenditures. In addition, expenditures are distributed between current and prior authorizations,

Several of the object classes are broken down into subclasses-personnel compensation, for example, is shown separately for permanent positions, for positions other than permanent, and for certain other payments. A third digit is therefore used in the object schedules to identify the subclasses; a zero is used for the third digit when there are no subclasses. Additional entries are shown for unvouchered obligations—those for which accountability is waived (coded 91.0); for amounts which cannot be distributed by object class (coded 92.0); and for certain other adjusting entries that are needed to reach a total which agrees with the total obligations shown in the program and financing schedule.

A personnel summary is appended to the object classification schedule, as illustrated:

For public enterprise revolving funds, there are two additional lines showing gross expenditures and applicable receipts of the fund. NARRATIVE STATEMENT OF PROGRAM AND PERFORMANCE

The work planned and services proposed to be carried out are described briefly in a narrative statement for each appropriation or fund. Where practicable the narrative statement indicates the expected accomplishment in relation to the financial estimates, and gives some measure of program and performance. SCHEDULE OF OBJECT CLASSIFICATION AND PERSONNEL

SUMMARY There is shown for each account a classification of obligations, costs, or accrued expenditures aceording to the following uniform list of object classifications:

Permanent positions are those of a full-time nature and indefinite duration. Some are filled by persons with temporary appointments. Other positions include those of a temporary nature (a year or less), part-time jobs (less than a full workweek), and intermittent employment (occasional employees).

Average grades and salaries are computed arithmetically. Thus the average salary sometimes falls outside the salary range of the average grade.
