Variance table



From the variance table above, the revenue side shows that the collected budget is out of
the estimated budget. We find that the total aid is $117, 00,000 during the first month and
considering three months, the total aid is up to $41,400,000. This is a clear indication that the
State aid collection is much far from the planned collection. From this 37% is collected coming
from the State Aid after three months instead of 25 % of the budget. During the first month only
7.63% had been spend, and after the three months we have 19.25% expenditure spent, this is a
clear demonstration of a sizable surplus. A deeper though demonstrates that the source of the
problem is the transportation department spending....
