What does a $119k shortfall mean for the program? SHUTTING DOWN ~6 sites OR SHUTTING DOWN the entire network for ~2 additional weeks per year OR EPA money expected in March; to ensure contractors are paid on time, contracts/task orders are offset to May/June timeframe (exact dates vary by contractor). By funding all contractors through the 1 st week of May next year (i.e. less than 12 months), we can save: ~$120k THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE ONCE! There is a chance that payment will be delayed. 10/16/2014 IMPROVE Steering Committee Meeting 7
