  Overall Project Budget: The amount that you (or another member of your organization) entered as the total budget for the project.

  Forecast: The amount that you are anticipating to spend. Forecast amounts are calculated as Committed Costs plus (+) Pending Change Orders plus (+) Holds.

  Committed Costs: Costs you are committed to spending. Committed Costs amounts are calculated as Awarded Contract Amounts plus (+) Approved Change Orders.

  Invoiced: The total amount of approved invoices.

  Remaining Costs: The remaining amount to be invoiced. Remaining Costs are calculated as Forecast minus (-) Invoiced.
