Total obligations are always shown; activities and objects are reflected on an obligation basis where cost data are not available. Obligations refer to orders placed, contracts awarded, loan agreements made, and services received during the year, regardless of the time of payment. In the case of a few limitations which are on the basis of accrued expenditures, the detail and the totals are on that basis.

SCHEDULE OF PROGRAM AND FINANCING
This schedule consists of three parts. In the section for program by activities, costs or obligations are classified by purpose, program, or project for 1964, 1965, and 1966. This classification is individually developed for each appropriation or fund, and is not uniform on a Government-wide basis.
The financing section shows the appropriation provided and other means of financing the program, and the disposition of amounts not used during the year.
Program and Financing (in thousands of dollars)
Where cost-type budgets are presented, the relation of costs to obligations is summarized in an entry "Change in selected resources." For appropriation accounts, this entry is supported by a footnote identifying the amounts of the resources involved. For revolving funds, the items are identified on the statement of financial condition and the appended tabulation.
Where programs are financed at a "preobligation"

Analysis of Government Equity (in thousands of dollars)
1965 1966 estimate estimate
The balance sheet excludes balances of appropriations and borrowing authorizations which have not yet been paid into the revolving fund. The section on equity of the Government is divided into three subsections as appro priate: (a) interest-bearing capital, (b) non-interestbearing capital, and (c) retained earnings.
Because the balance sheet is on an accrual basis, it does not reflect the obligations incurred which have not yet matured into liabilities, nor does it reflect unfilled customer orders received and available as a basis for obligation in the case of intragovernmental revolving funds. Therefore there is normally appended to the balance sheet an "Analy sis of Government Equity" which shows obligations other than liabilities, the unobligated balance, unfilled cus tomers' orders on hand (where relevant), and invested cap ital and earnings, as in the following example:
10 1.239 146 1,385 1,395
