Why can't genoeg be used instead? "De hoeveelheid is niet genoeg"

I think it is because voldoende/genoeg here are in the Complement slot, and as such they are mostly placed after niet.

Why not "De bedrag is niet genoeg"? I thought hoeveelheid as quantity, so that's why I went for bedrag. Thanks in advance!
