19 How it will be done – SIMPLE EXAMPLE Secretariat A  $5 million budget  All departments under the Secretariat have a total budget of $400MM  All departments have an average of 3% for UU and AA related charges Department A  $12 million budget  $2 million is for indirect charges (overhead) including secretariat allocation of $150K  Remaining $10 million is for programs of the department  20% indirect rate ($2MM / $10MM)

20 How it will be done – SIMPLE EXAMPLE IT of $12MM moves from all departments to Secretariat A ($400MM x 3%)  Total Secretariat budget now at $17MM  All department budgets now at $388MM ($400MM - $12MM)

21 How it will be done – SIMPLE EXAMPLE - RESULTS Secretariat A  Cost allocation now as follows: Adjusted Budget $17MM Department total budgets $388MM $17 / $388 = 4.38144%  Allocation to Department A Budget $11.64MM Adjusted allocation $510K LESS $150K already in admin Change is $360K Department A  Non-IT Budget now $11.64MM ($12MM - $360k)  However, cost allocation of secretariat costs should revert approximately $360K to department  Revised budget with allocated secretariat costs $12MM  $10MM for programs unchanged

22 Movement of IT to Secretariats Issues  Will require redo of departmental indirect rates and Secretariat allocation to departments during FY10 for FY11  Significant variances my need to be addressed during FY10  Will need to identify positions that are moving Seniority tracking will serve dual purpose

23 Actions Secretariats Charge back methodologies determined  Direct charge vs. rate  Need to work with OSC on rate methodologies  Insure costs not already allocated through Indirect (how were they charged last year)  Departmental cost allocation plans (DCAPs) will need to be revised especially at the secretariat level OSC’s role  Review with HHS DCA  Make Vendors available for DCAP and Rate Methodologies  Assist in review of chargeback methodologies

24 Secretariat IT allocated to Departments Total Secretariat IT  Less: IT ISA’d back to departments AA and UU IT charged back through the chargeback Internal to the Secretariat Equals IT Allocated
