So the government has entered into an agreement with a private organization to pay money on its behalf. The government will pay back the money when it gets the authorization to do so. In the meantime, it is, in effect, borrowing the money.

I thought only congress can incur debts on behalf of the government?

But they close privately owned businesses that pay for themselves on federal land.

You are right. Beck brought this up today, and to this laymen, it seems he has a point. This is a TERRIBLE precedent for the Executive to be incurring debt. How Congress can let this stand is unbelievable.
