Public Health operated at a surplus after indirect allocations of $345. The following factors have contributed to this surplus:
The favourable variance of $495 is a result of staff turnover and delays in filling vacant positions within various Public Health programs.
The favourable variance of $58 is a result of less than anticipated external legal and consulting fees in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) division
The favourable variance of $549 is a result of delays in operationalizing the new Public Health facilities, lower than anticipated external psychiatrist fees in the Mental Health division and reduced demand for medical supplies such as vaccines in the Mandatory programs. A portion of this unspent budget has been committed to consulting and architect fees and is included in the 2016 encumbrances reported in Transfers to Funds.
The favourable variance of $64 is primarily a result in fuel savings in the EMS division.
The favourable variance of $219 is a result of additional in-year funding approvals from the Ministry of Health in the EMS division and in the Mandatory and Related Programs.
The favourable variance of $118 is a result of unbudgeted revenue from the disposal of twelve ambulances which have reached the end of their useful life in 2015 and 2016, unbudgeted secondment revenue, other cost recoveries and additional project grants.
The unfavourable variance of $158 is a result of unbudgeted Public Health partnerships with other corporate departments.
The unfavourable variance of $77 is due to the return of unused funds to the Ambulance Dispatch Reserve pertaining to the Omega Project study of low acuity 911 calls in the EMS division.
The unfavourable variance of $275 relates to the 2016 encumbrances.
