Financial Management for HHS

What are the most important issues for a human service agency to address? What issue is least important? Explain
In the reading material I have it says the most important issues for a human service agency to address are direct and indirect costs, depreciation and use allowance, unallowable costs, profit margins, fixed and variable costs, break-even points, market prices and variable fee and sliding fee schedules. I can not find anywhere in the reading where it talks about the least important. Can someone help me please?
I don't see why most of the items on that list would apply to a Human Services Agency. Most are agencies of government that are there to provide services and not to make a profit.
I would say break-even points and profit margins are unimportant.
