My 3.5-year project has already passed a year; there are two and a half more years.
This afternoon, there was a budget inspection of the university; two officers from the main office came to our institute, and one officer in our institute and I welcomed them in a room.
The two officers asked how I am choosing items to buy and how the officers of the institute are ordering them.
Then they came to the lab to check what I had bought.
It was not a national inspection, but I was a bit worried and relieved when they told me things seemed OK.
