Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM)

The Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) Grid System divides the earth into 60 zones, running north and south, each 6' wide. Each zone is numbered, beginning with zone 1 at the 180th meridian near the International Date Line, with zone numbers increasing to the east. Most of the United States is included in Zones 10 through 19, as shown below. On a map, each zone is flattened, and a square grid is superimposed upon it. Any point in the zone may be referred to by citing its zone number, its distance in meters from the equator ("northing"), and its distance in meters from a north‐south reference line ("easting"). These three figures‐the zone number, easting, and northing‐make up the complete UTM Grid Reference for any point, and distinguish it from any point on earth.

Unliquidated Financial Obligations

For financial reports prepared on a cash basis, financial obligations incurred by the non-Federal entity that have not been paid (liquidated). For reports prepared on an accrual expenditure basis, these are financial obligations incurred by the non-Federal entity for which an expenditure has not been recorded.

Unobligated Balance

The amount of funds under a Federal award that the non-Federal entity has not obligated. The amount is computed by subtracting the cumulative amount of the non-Federal entity's unliquidated financial obligations and expenditures of funds under the Federal award from the cumulative amount of the funds that the Federal awarding agency or pass-through entity authorized the non-Federal entity to obligate.

Unused Balance

Any portion of funds remaining after the final reimbursement is made on a grant and the grant is closed.
