Content Pane

 
Cost Thresholds provide a view of the total estimated costs, funding limits, and budgets for each color of money. This view displays estimated costs only for unfunded projects. NOTE: The costs are calculated only from the filtered projects. The Content Pane of the Cost Thresholds view can provide a quick glance of estimated costs based on a set time period. Project cost details can be explored by expanding a category of money. All columns (except Cost Chart) can be sorted or filtered.
