Explanation:
"Et regnskapsmessig mindreforbruk er de midlene som er til overs etter at netto driftsresultat er disponert i tråd med kommunestyrets budsjettvedtak."

"However, some Head Start grantees, as expected, did not spend all of their program funds and carried these unspent funds forward for use in subsequent years. "

Perhaps one might write "unspent budget funds" to match "regnskapsmessig" better. Several hits on that too. It also seems that unspent funds which have been approved for spending in the following fiscal period are called "carry-forward funds".

During my investigations, I've also seen that "surplus funds" and "unspent balances" are common terms, also in connection with "carry forward".
