Story Behind the Curve

The administrative budget is for the costs of how DVHA does business, staff, contracts, and grants. The performance measure for the administrative budget is to show where DVHA’s actual spend is to where we should be in our budget.

Contracting

This area is underspent to-date as the major IT project timelines expect much of the invoicing to occur in the second half of the fiscal year.   The adjusted budget for this area is $110,643,179.  Based on available information, DVHA projects to underspend in this area by $8,551,350.  This underspending will mostly occur in IT projects and thus will not result in much general fund savings.

 

Operating

General Operating:

DVHA has a general operating budget of $5,947,085.  Based on current spending and projected future costs, DVHA projects that we will be closing the year close to budget. 

 

ADS MOU Operating:

The DVHA budget has $27,281,016 for the ADS MOU to support IT projects.  DVHA rolled forward over an additional $3M related to PY invoices.  This has mostly been liquidated but we do estimate that ADS has not invoiced $148,249 for the PY.

The lack of timely invoices does create significant uncertainty but based on known factors we believe that we will be underspent by $6,779,003 by closeout.

 

Grants

Grants are underspent to-date as there are continuing invoicing issues and timely filing delays on the part of the vendors.  DVHA continues to work with these vendors on education and compliance and has drafted formal instructions. This work has led to more error-free invoices
