Observed Relationships Between Economic And Technical Receipts Revisions In Federal Budget Projections

Observed Relationships Between Economic And Technical Receipts Revisions In Federal Budget Projections

Budget and tax analysts are familiar with the regular process of publication of revised budget projections on the part of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), as well as the accounting for revisions to outlays and receipts projections on the basis of changes in policy, economic assumptions, and technical factors. 1 OMB and CBO also regularly publish estimates of the sensitivity of budget projections to changing economic assumptions, illustrating implied rules of thumb for how a change to the economic outlook would change the budget outlook. What is not well understood, however, is the relationship that exists between economic and technical revisions. It has been recognized that changing technical tax receipts relationships were responsible for significant receipts gains in the mid- to late-1990s – that is, that the identified effects from the cyclical surge in the economy explained only part of the sharp rise in tax receipts (Kasten, Weiner, and Woodward, 1999). Similarly, the fiscal year 2001 results showed large negative technicals for receipts coinciding with the economy being in recession.

Towards Effective Infrastructure  Development in Nigeria: Theoretical  Considerations from a Project Management Perspective

Towards Effective Infrastructure Development in Nigeria: Theoretical Considerations from a Project Management Perspective

Although the numerous benefits of infrastructure and the huge resources committed to infrastructural devel- opment are recognized, there are still some factors that militate against the early completion and at times suc- cessful execution of these projects. In Nigeria, Budget Office of the Federation (BOF), through its budget moni- toring exercises, has identified some poor project portfolio management practices across Ministries, Depart- ments and Agencies (MDAs), culminating in delayed compensations to local communities (with attendant dis- ruptions to work), delayed payments to, and mobilization of contractors, delays in due process procurement and other approvals, among other factors that negatively impact on capital project execution in Nigeria. The budget implementation reports released by the BOF show that cost over-run, stalled projects, delayed approval for vari- ations (in scope, design, duration, and cost), faulty design, inappropriate or delayed funding, poor stakeholder management (such as in management of compensations issues), are some of recurring factors that affect capital project execution in the country [9]-[12]. These are suggestive of poor project prioritization and conceptualiza- tion, as well as distortion of project implementation plans. These, individually or collectively, are inimical to successful project implementation.

tests are easier to incorporate into a usual family prac- tice visit. The reach test measures how far patients can lean forward and extend their hands while standing, without losing their balance (healthy patients can reach 10 or more inches), and the TUG test consists of tim- ing patients while they stand from a seated position, walk 3 m, turn around, walk back, and sit back down. Although a healthy patient takes 10 or fewer seconds to complete this task, the clinician will need to budget about 5 to 10 minutes to conduct the TUG test.

Demand and Price Dynamics within the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme

Demand and Price Dynamics within the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme

In its analysis of drug prices in the USA, 13 the Congressional Budget Office found that there is significant price competition in the USA among suppliers of different versions of drugs within a given therapeutic class, even though each holds a patent. This competition often took the form of discounts being offered to those purchasers that were members of pharmacy benefit managers or similar bulk purchasing organisations with standard formularies that can significantly influence a drug’s market share. Consumers purchasing drugs through retail pharmacies would not generally receive these discounts.

Obamacare: Coverage without Cost Containment

Obamacare: Coverage without Cost Containment

Any discussion about healthcare cost containment is necessarily also a conversation about entitlement reform, the federal budget and the national debt. In 2016 to 2026, according to the CBO, mandatory federal outlays are forecast to increase from $2.5 to $4.1 trillion compounded annual growth rate (CAGR: 5.3%), discretionary outlays from $1.2 to $1.4 trillion (CAGR: 1.8%) and interest from $255 to $830 billion (CAGR: 12.5%). Medicare ($596 billion) and Medicaid ($261 billion) alone account for 51% of the federal increase in mandatory outlays, whereas Social Security accounts for 42%. A deficit of -$544 billion in 2016 is forecast to reach -$1,366 billion in 2026, leading to an increase in the debt held by the public of $23.8 trillion. 14 Deficit spending and the

Relationship of Reputation and Risk : Strategies for Sustainable Corporational ReputationFatma Geçikli

Relationship of Reputation and Risk : Strategies for Sustainable Corporational ReputationFatma Geçikli

It would be a great mistake to think that risk is a concept having only negative effects. In fact, in should be considered as an opportunity to make money, and a systematic effort should be made to invert it into an opportunity (http://www.kirbas.com/pdf/pdfciktisi.php?id=410). Risks can be turned to an opportunity, as in the case of crisis, if they are effectively managed. Reputation risks may lead to destructive effects on corporations, even on the sector, and as a result their costs are remarkably high. As for the risk management, it is a process involving all the stages beginning from the idea of product and to the presentation of it to the consumer. This systematic process comprises the stage of defecting of the risks through rapid decisions and activities, evaluating which risks should be primarily dealt with, and developing and applying strategies and plans to cope with these risks. In addition, risk management is a discipline aiming at reducing uncertainties and the negative effects of these uncertainties into a reasonable level. It also involves determining and reducing the problems before they turn into a threat, as well as planning and carrying out related activities. The main aim of risk management is to make the risks visible and measurable for decision-making parties, and to reduce subjectivity (http://www.kirbas.com/pdf/pdfciktisi.php?id=410).

Enhancement of public fiscal competence as educational process tendency in Russia

Enhancement of public fiscal competence as educational process tendency in Russia

management is to ensure fiscal transparency. The 2007 report prepared by the International Monetary Fund, "Guidelines for providing fiscal transparency" interprets the concept of "fiscal transparency" as follows: "Openness to the general public in regard to the structure and functions of government, fiscal policy objectives, public sector accounts, and projections. It provides easy access to reliable, comprehensive, timely, understandable and comparable information among countries on the activities of government so that the electorate and financial markets can accurately assess the financial position of the government and the true costs and benefits associated with the activities of the government including its current and future economic and social consequences" (IMF, Guidelines for financial transparency, 2007). The paper states that the defining characteristic of fiscal transparency is the provision of public information to the society.

TWELVE FUNDAMENTAL RULES OF OFFICE MANAGEMENT

TWELVE FUNDAMENTAL RULES OF OFFICE MANAGEMENT

As an office manager, it is important to manage the filing and indexing for both digital and hard copy documents. Arrange your digital folders effectively so that you are able to find certain documents with ease. Hard copies should be filed away and clearly marked so you can retrieve these documents at any time. Proper filing will enable any one to retrieve the data anytime even in the absence of the employee who is handling the filing system.

PRS: This dimension is included in all of the rating sites. There are hardly any differences in the weight given individual aspects of office organization: waiting times and promptness are the primary concerns. One site goes into this point in greater detail: “ Getting your test results back in a timely manner./After arriving at the office, how many minutes did you wait before seeing the doctor?/About how many minutes did the doctor spend with you in your most recent visit?” (4). On English-language websites this category also sometimes includes an estimate of the costs of the treatment (8-11). Office staff

Regulatory Oversight and Financial Reporting Incentives: Evidence from SEC Budget Allocations

Regulatory Oversight and Financial Reporting Incentives: Evidence from SEC Budget Allocations

The scope of filing reviews varies between full cover-to-cover reviews, where every aspect of a filing is reviewed in detail for compliance with SEC regulations, to targeted reviews where the DCF staff examines a single disclosure item. At the beginning of each fiscal year, when overall budgetary resources are known, DCF managers develop goals related to the number and scope of filing reviews; in addition, they suggest criteria that the Disclosure Operations Offices should use to identify firms subject to selective reviews (GAO 2013). The filing review process is labor-intensive. Typically, two members of the DCF staff review a selected filing to ensure consistency across all reviews. Budgetary limitations constrain both the quantity and scope of filing reviews that the SEC is able to undertake during any given period. Differences between office- level budget allocations thus result in both cross-sectional and inter-temporal variation in the intensity of SEC monitoring faced by firms.

A Study on the Cost of Production in Film Project Management: Taking Small Budget Films in China as an Example

A Study on the Cost of Production in Film Project Management: Taking Small Budget Films in China as an Example

Based on a clear investment quota, the film project begins to formulate a pro- duction plan. Once the production plan is determined, detailed planning is re- quired for the use and distribution of funds throughout the film-producing pe- riod [5]. As far as small-budget films are concerned, there are still many man- agement deficiencies in the process of producing films, which leads to waste of funds, especially the waste of funds caused by many human factors, and ulti- mately results in unnecessary cost overruns. In this article, the author studies, concludes and summarizes the cost overruns and cost savings involved in the production process of small-budget film from the perspective of cost control with an aim to help managers avoid unnecessary expenditures, contain unne- cessary losses and successfully complete the film production on the basis of sav- ing funds. In the film production, much consumption is abstract. High costs do not necessarily bring about high benefit, and low costs do not necessarily lead to low quality. For example, providing there are two similar films in scale with their production cost varying greatly, the problems are impossible to be penetrated for investors and managers lack of experience. As a matter of fact, laymen are in- volved in investing and managing most of the current small-budget films. In the production process of the film, the five main aspects involved in the costs are: personnel expenses; material costs, digital photography costs, equipment rental expenses, and other living expenses [6]. Among them, small-budget films’ de- mand for digital photography cost including special effects, film trick and other expenses is small. In addition, the digital photography link belongs to the cate- gory of post-production, which is beyond the scope of this article. Therefore, the author will discuss and analyze the personnel expenses, material costs, equip- ment rental expenses and other living expenses in this paper.
