In order to maintain an operating reserve not less than 3 and not more than 6 months, FGIS reviewed the value of the operating reserve at the end of FY2019 to ensure that an operating reserve of 41⁄2 months is maintained. The program operating reserve at the end of fiscal year 2019 was $15,543,893 with a monthly operating expense of $3,159,182. The target of 4.5 months of operating reserve is $14,216,321. Therefore, the operating reserve is greater than 4.5 times the monthly operating expenses by $1,327,572. For each $1,000,000, rounded down, above the target level, all Schedule A fees must be reduced by 2 percent. The operating reserve is $1.3 million above the target level resulting in a calculated 2 percent reduction, as required by 800.71(b)(2)(ii). Therefore, for 2020, FGIS is reducing all the 2019 Schedule A fees for service in Schedule A in paragraph (a)(1) by 2 percent. All Schedule A fees for service are rounded to the nearest $0.10, except for fees based on tonnage or hundredweight. The fee Schedule A has been published on the agency’s public website.
