HHS Reference Tool for Contract Funding, Formation and Appropriations Law Compliance
Potential Appropriations Law Violation
Because an annual appropriation is being used, the contract modification to continue the performance of severable services by providing incremental funding can only cover a period of one year or less. To fund a longer period is improperly extending the life of the appropriation.
REMINDER:FAR 32.703-3(b) allows the period being funded to cross fiscal year lines, provided an annual appropriation is used and the period funded does not exceed one year.
