Expiration Date. September 30, 2013

The review of obligations open as of December 31, 2012 is scheduled to begin January 28, 2013 for obligations with no activity since December 31, 2011, or if they were identified for deobligation in previous reviews but are still recorded in FMMI.

Please conduct your review and complete the Obligation Checklist and Determination for each obligation selected for your county/office and listed in ROOT at by Wednesday, February 20, 2013. As part of this review, the Obligation Checklist must be completed for each new obligation as it is created in ProTracts and a hard copy placed in the file.

The action to cancel or terminate contracts listed in ROOT that are invalid should be initiated as soon as possible.
