* These numbers may change slightly due to false negative/positive codes on AD applications. Data from Fiscal Year 2018 are shown italicized in parentheses. October 2018 data were run on 8/6/2018, January 2019 on 12/21/2018, May 2019 on 4/17/2019, and August 2019 on 8/8/2019. Applications that had been withdrawn and contracts were not included. Dollar amounts shown are the first-year total costs requested for October Council and first-year direct costs requested for January, May, and August Councils (AD application information for October Councils is generated from a database that does not display direct costs).

* Data for each Council were run prior to that Council's meeting: January 2019 on 12/21/2018, May 2019 on 4/23/2019, and October 2019 on 8/14/2019. Only applications that are normally percentiled were included. As applications in response to RFAs, and a few other applications, are not normally percentiled, the number of applications in Table 2 is usually less than the corresponding number of RPG applications in Table IA.
