Corporate Administration is operating a year-to-date deficit before indirect allocations of $393 and forecasting a total deficit before indirect allocations of $1,308. The following factors have contributed to these variances:
The unfavourable year-to-date and forecasted variances of $588 and $1,329 is primarily the result of corporate labour relations costs, higher than anticipated health/dental benefits for retirees, and an increase in employee assistance program costs; partially offset with gapping dollars for vacant positions within the department.
The favourable year -to-date and forecasted variances of $215 and $114 is primarily due to the timing of expenditures related to the employee engagement survey; offset by higher than anticipated Bell line installations and repairs.
The unfavourable year-to-date and forecasted variance of $93 is primarily due to lower usage costs related to Regional photocopiers incurred by Information Technology Solutions.
Corporate Services includes the General Manager's Office, Corporate Information Management Services, Corporate Print & Mail Services, Information Technology Solutions and Human Resources whose main focus is the general management/support of the other Regional departments.
