RAW BUDGET DATA - FY 2018 4
The comparison of actual expenditures to budget may appear inconsistent. That is
because base wages for personnel are fully budgeted in the expense categories regular
wages:full-time, regular wages:part-time, or regular wages:civil service. The budget
does not assume expenditure levels for the various leave categories, such as sick pay,
vacation pay, or jury leave. However, actual expenses for various leave categories are
recorded based on timesheet coding. The result is that actual expenditures for regular wages
are spread across multiple expense categories while the budget is shown in one expense
Personnel savings is budgeted to account for the likely savings in personnel costs generated through attrition. However, the savings is realized in the expense categories regular wages:full-time, regular wages:part-time and regular wages:civil service. Therefore, the actual expenditures in the personnel savings expense category will always be zero.
