2d Auditor General's Office 2021 Operating Budget
Origin
(November 19, 2020) Letter from the Audit Committee
Recommendations

The Audit Committee recommends that:

 

1. City Council approve the 2021 Operating Budget for the Auditor General's Office in Attachment 1 to the report (November 5, 2020) from the Auditor General.

 

2. City Council approve the Auditor General's request to convert five temporary contract staff positions into permanent positions, resulting in a net zero budget impact, as outlined in the report (November 5, 2020) from the Auditor General.

Summary

At its meeting on November 19, 2020, the Audit Committee considered Item AU7.6, titled "Auditor General's Office 2021 Operating Budget" and made recommendations to City Council.

 

In accordance with Chapter 3 of the Toronto Municipal Code, the Auditor General is submitting her 2021 Operating Budget request to the Audit Committee for consideration and recommendation to City Council.

 

The attached report provides information relating to the Auditor General's 2021 Operating Budget request of $6.651 million. This is slightly less than the base budget request last year and is equal to 1/20th of one per cent, or 0.05 per cent, of the City's 2020 Approved Adjusted Budget. Within the requested base budget, the Auditor General is seeking to convert five temporary contract staff positions to permanent positions as part of an organizational restructure. This will result in a net zero budget impact; conversion costs will be absorbed in the base budget.

 

The budget request supports the Auditor General providing the same level of capacity to undertake value for money audits and investigations as in previous years. The Auditor General recognizes the City's ongoing financial pressures, especially with a focus on identifying savings and/or efficiencies. That being said, the benefits of performance audits that the Auditor General brings are that much more valuable. As highlighted in the Auditor General's Annual Reports, past audit reports have realized millions of dollars in cost savings, avoided costs, and identified revenue increases and new revenues.

 

The Auditor General's 2021 Work Plan is being presented to the Audit Committee at the same meeting as this 2021 Budget Request.

2j Exhibition Place 2021 Operating Budget
Origin
(October 26, 2020) Letter from the Board of Governors of Exhibition Place
Recommendations

The Board of Governors of Exhibition Place recommends that:

 

1. City Council transfer any surplus above budget target for 2021 to the "Exhibition Place Conference Centre Reserve Fund".

Summary

At its meeting on October 26, 2020, the Board of Governors of Exhibition Place considered Item EP14.2, titled "2021 Operating Budget" and made recommendations to City Council.

 

On August 7th, the City Manager's Office provided the preliminary 2020 Budget Process, Directions, and Guidelines for all City Divisions and Agencies for 2020 which is subject to change. Until such other direction is given the Board is following last years directive to all City Divisions and Agencies which is to submit a zero change budget year over year.

 

In preparing our budget plan, we have taken into consideration the financial impacts of COVID-19, and therefore have provided for a 0 percent COLA increase and 0 percent pay for Performance increases for 2021 per Council directives. There is still some uncertainty as to the future financial impacts and the extent of COVID-19, and it is still too early to assess 2021 operating impact. Exhibition Place staff have developed a 2021 status quo Operating Budget that is consistent with 2020 budget principles with a nil ($0) increase over the 2020 Operating Budget. This preliminary budget plan will not have an impact on the City property tax base year-over-year. Wages and benefits cost saving from delaying in hiring replacements for management staff who retired in 2020, temporary laid off of casual/temporary staff, and reduction in volume of base building maintenance and overtime.

 

Staff are optimistic that although the volatility of COVID-19 may not be completely gone, the exhibition business will return to some normalcy in a COVID-19 world, but are aware that measures may have to be taken again for 2021 with similar financial impact as in 2020. The measures taken to mitigate the risk of additional lost business or increase in costs due to COVID-19 is that all non-essential costs have been delayed/deferred, and discretionary expenditures such as travel, training, etc. has been eliminated. COVID-19 costs include both ongoing day to day service costs, as well as, restart/recover/rebuild costs.

Financial Impact

Toronto Police Service - 2021 Operating Budget

 

The table below summarizes the 2021 budget request by category. The budget development process, specific inclusions and year-over-year changes will be discussed in more detail in the 2021 Budget Details section of this report.

 

Table 1- Summary of 2021 Budget Request by Category

 

(See Table 1 titled "Summary of 2021 Budget Request by Category" in the Financial impact section of the report (January 4, 2021) from the Chief of Police.)

 

Toronto Police Service - 2021-2030 Capital Budget

 

Capital program requirements are funded from various sources, specifically:

 

a. debt issued by the City;

 

b. the Vehicle and Equipment Reserve, which is funded from the Service’s operating budget; and

 

c. development charges (D.C.) which are fees charged to developers to help pay for the cost of infrastructure required to provide municipal services in growing areas to qualifying Service projects – using D.C.s reduces the Service’s reliance on debt funding.

 

Similar to 2020, the City did not issue debt targets for the 2021–2030 capital program. Instead, consideration and approval of projects in the capital program will be based on need and value/benefits provided, project readiness and previous years’ spending rates and affordability.  Funding allocations will be prioritized against critical capital infrastructure spending and investments that support transformation and COVID-19 recovery efforts.

 

Table 1 below provides a summary of the Service’s 2021-2030 Capital Program request. Additional details can be found in Attachment A to the report (December 29, 2020) from the Chief of Police.

 

(See Table 1 titled "Summary of the 2021-2030 Capital Program Request (000’s)" in the Financial impact section of the report (December 29, 2020) from the Chief of Police.)

 

Toronto Police Service Parking Enforcement Unit - 2021 Operating Budget Request

 

The Parking Enforcement Unit (P.E.U.) 2021 net operating budget request is $49.2M net ($50.5M gross) which is a 0% increase over 2020 net operating budget.

 

Toronto Police Services Board - 2021 Operating Budget

 

This Toronto Police Services Board 2021 operating budget request is a net amount of $1,930,400, which represents an increase of 0% over the 2020 budget. 

 

Proposing a 2021 net operating budget that amounts to a 0% increase over 2020 recognizes:

 

a. the need for all City agencies, boards and commissions to do their part to assist the City of Toronto in managing the unparalleled financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, while

 

b. maintaining the required resources to support the Board in discharging its important statutory governance and oversight obligations during a time of considerable and ongoing police reform.

 

A summary of the net operating budget request is as follows:
