Variance Analysis (in thousands of dollars)

Niagara Regional Police Services (NRPS) is forecasting a year end deficit of $204. This year end projected deficit includes costs associated with the delay and transition to the new headquarters, the impact of increased WSIB costs and benefit premium rate increases, offset by expected savings resulting from a service wide freeze on all discretionary spending. The Service continues to monitor the financial position and anticipates mitigating the forecasted deficit with this strategy.

A variance explanation for the year-to-date and forecasted amounts are as follows:

Compensation

The unfavourable year-to-date and forecasted variances of $1,973 and $4,585 are mainly a result of an increased demand for Special Duty services ($1,061), the cost of back filing operationally essential civilian positions and required overtime in the preparation for the transition to the new headquarters ($675) and increased benefit premiums including WSIB premiums ($826). This is offset by lower than budgeted uniform salaries due to delays in recruitment for vacant positions and timing of promotions ($641). The salary deficit resulting from Special Duty is offset by an increase to Special Duty revenue.

Equipment, Vehicles, Technology

The favourable year-to date and forecasted variances of $277 and $475 are primarily a result of lower than budgeted fuel prices.

Total Revenues

The favourable year-to-date and forecasted variances of $1,548 and $1,510 are primarily due to the increase in the demand for Special Duty services and an increase to other revenue for recoverable services.
