The purpose of this assessment is to enable students to apply the knowledge they have gained from this unit.This assessment is designed for students to further develop the zero-based budget from Assessment 3 that shows skills in breaking down costs for a service or project in relation to planned activity levels and outcomes or deliverables. Development of a business case is a common activity for health managers to undertake.
For your chosen service or health facility prepare a budget for this new service or project suitable to the Nepean
Blue Mountains Local Health District. Prepare this in a report format as discussed in class and as outlined on the vUWS website.
1. Remember that outputs as well as financial data are required.
2. In preparing the budget, students should show the build-up of the budget from a zero-base including all significant line items.
3. A contingency plan must be included (i.e. what happens if desired funding is not available to the optimal level) at 10% less than the optimal budget. Show deletions and cost cutting measures.
4. Include a financial activity analysis and a breakeven analysis chart to show at what level of activity the service’breaks even’. In the public sector this means to come in on budget rather than make a profit.
