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