Pooled cash is greater than the previous year as cash generated from operations (General, Designated, Auxiliary and Expendable Restricted Funds)
 was conservatively managed (e.g. hiring freeze), held in reserves and slowly spent on projects due to uncertainty with the State
 economic situation and appropriate funding levels. In addition, $2.7 million ESA Project funds in pooled cash are not yet expended.
Endowment is greater than the previous year primarily because investment earnings exceeded distributions, and the transfer of OUF Endowment funds
  to the University books and investment accounts. Transferred Foundation investments currently in the Equity Index Fund are being averaged into
  the equity and bond funds. Additions due to gifts for the 12-month period to OU Endowment funds amounted to $357,812.
