Assignment Exercise 15–3: Transactions Outside the Operating Budget
Review Figure 15–2 and the accompanying text.
Metropolis Health System (MHS) has received a wellness grant from the charitable arm of an area electronics company. The grant will run for 24 months, beginning at the
first of the next fiscal year. Two therapists and two registered nurses will each be spending half of their time working on the wellness grant. All four individuals
are full-time employees of MHS. The electronics company has only recently begun to operate the charitable organization that awarded the grant. While they have gained
all the legal approvals necessary, they have not yet provided the manuals and instructions for grant transactions that MHS usually receives when grants are awarded.
Consequently, guidance about separate accounting is not yet forthcoming from the grantor.
How would you handle this issue on the MHS operating budget for next year?
Assignment Exercise 15–4: Identified Versus Allocated Costs in Budgeting
Review Figure 15–3 and the accompanying text.
Metropolis Health System is preparing for a significant upgrade in both hardware and software for its information systems. As part of the project, the Chief of
Information Operations (CIO) has indicated that the Information Systems (IS) department can change the format of the MHS operating budgets and related reports before
the operating budget is constructed for the coming fiscal year. The Chief Financial Officer (CFO) has long wanted to modify what costs are identified and what costs
are allocated (along with the method of allocation). This is a golden opportunity to do so. To gain ammunition for the change, the CFO is preparing to conduct a
survey. The survey will obtain a variety of suggestions for potential changes in allocation methods for the new operating budget report formats. You have been selected
as one of the employees who will be surveyed.
