Unexpended monies from contracts in the previous fiscal year (2001-02) are totaled and presented to the Council for reallocation. These funds are often derived from unfilled staff positions or other types of savings left uninvoiced in contract allocations. The Council and SFDPH HHS make an annual request to HRSA to apply these funds to contracts/projects in the current fiscal year; HRSA mandates that approval of the request is dependent on the funds being expended in the current year (2002-03).
