arnvncbl asked: Any money not spent by the end of this fiscal year (FY13) does not carry over to the next (FY14) so the organization loses the money. Not only that, but they will end up getting less money the following year since not spending the money means not needing it. Which is why come August/September, everyone goes nuts trying to spend the remainder of their money. However the money does not need to be actually spent, rather just obligated. October 1st is not as significant as September 30th.
Couple that with the military trying to pawn off as much stuff as possible at a steep discount to local and domestic entities and you’ll quickly figure out that it’s not a conspiracy, it’s just a giant warehouse sale.
