BU41.2 - Operating Variance Report for the Year Ended December 31, 2012
- Decision Type:
The Budget Committee deferred consideration of the item to a special meeting of the Budget Committee to be held prior to the July 3, 2013 Executive Committee meeting, for public presentations and debate.
The purpose of this report is to provide Council with the City of Toronto Operating Variance for the year ended December 31, 2012 and allocation of the 2012 year-end under-spending.
The preliminary 2012 year-end operating position for Tax Supported Operations resulted in a net favourable variance of $248.183 million available for distribution after Council/Legislative Requirements are met. Consistent with the City Council's approved Surplus Management Policy, at least 75 percent of the surplus or $186.116 million of the 2012 final year-end operating results will be allocated to the Capital Financing Reserve and $62.067 million will be allocated to underfunded liabilities and/or reserve funds. In addition, Rate Supported Programs reported a year-end net favourable variance of $63.186 million.
It should be noted that the audit of the 2012 financial statements is not complete. As a result, there is a possibility that changes to the final surplus amount could occur but staff anticipate that any further adjustments will be minor in nature.
