Deficiency or insufficiency is "the lack of sufficiency; a shortage or inadequacy."[1]

In English, insufficiency is usually expressed using not and enough. With nouns, we use the form "not enough [noun]". With modifiers (adjectives and adverbs) we use the form "not [adjective] enough" or "not [adverb] enough".

More formal alternatives include using the adverb insufficiently, or the adverb phrase "not sufficiently".
