"This final report provides the results of our audit of unobligated balances of funds awarded under the Public Health Preparedness and Response for Bioterrorism Program (Bioterrorism Program). From August 31, 1999, to August 30, 2005, when the Bioterrorism Program ended, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded almost $3 billion to States and major local health departments (awardees). To monitor the expenditure of these funds, CDC required awardees to submit financial status reports within 90 days after the end of each budget period. The reports showed such information as the amounts expended, obligated, and unobligated."
