User Fee Collections

Back to Table of Contents:  FY 2009 AGDUFA Financial Report


AGDUFA specifies that the user fees shall be collected for certain abbreviated applications for generic new animal drugs upon their submission, and annual fees shall be collected for certain products and sponsors.  The statute also specifies the amount FDA is allowed to collect for each of these categories, and how the fee rates should be adjusted in each fiscal year for increases in workload.

Under AGDUFA, fees collected and appropriated, but not spent by the end of a fiscal year, continue to remain available for FDA to spend in future fiscal years.  The balances carried forward from year to year are described on page 7.

The following table provides a breakout of user fees collected and receivable by fee source in FY 2009.

User fee collections are reported in the year the fee was originally due—referred to as cohort years.  For example, a fee originally due in FY 2009, even if it is received in FY 2010, is attributed to FY 2009 collections.  Since FY 2009 was the first year of AGDUFA, no collections received relate to prior cohort years.   

The receivables for FY 2009 are from uncollected product and sponsor fees.  FDA turns these receivables over to the Program Support Center (PSC) of the Office of the Secretary for collection after some time.  PSC, in turn, will assign the accounts to a collection agency under contract to them for collection.

Totals reported for each fiscal year are net of any refunds for that year.  In order to ensure the quality of the information provided in financial reports, FDA will update prior year collections and receivables each
