include written findings and conclusions on the applicant's eligibility and status
as a prevailing party, and an explanation of the reasons for any difference between

issue, findings on whether the agency's position was substantially justified,
whether the applicant unduly protracted the proceedings, or whether special
circumstances make an award unjust.
