Similar Discussion at ATIA in Chicago— But Even More Important Now….Why? Always important to run an efficient, effective operation More likely to be asked to demonstrate your program’s effectiveness Sept. 14, 2010 Sunshine Review report—Budgets for FY2011 are even more difficult than 2010 Yolanda Kodrzycki, an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, told the National Governors Association meeting in July 2010 that budgeting for next year would be "just as tough" for state budget makers.

Cost Benefit, Simple ROI, ROI/Business Case: What Are We Talking About? Similar but slightly different terms Cost Benefits – a general list. ROI – performance measure to compare efficiency of different investments. ROI/Business Case – stated definitions and assumptions and yields some insights on how to improve business in the future.

Simple ROI Calculation ROI = (Gains from investment – Cost of investments) divided by Cost of investment Which is a better investment? \$1,000 that earns \$50 \$100 that earns \$20

Simple ROI Calculation \$1,000 that earns \$50 (\$1050 - \$1,000)/ \$1000 =.05 or 5% ROI \$100 that earns \$20 (\$120 - \$100)/\$100 =.20 or 20% ROI

Before You Start Your Calculations 1. List your costs 2. List your benefits 3. State your definitions and focus 4. Think about what a “good” return would be…. Kansas legislator when talking about another program was pleased with a \$2 return State your goal for a return

Recommendations for Future Work in ROI Consider factoring in costs savings/benefits of: Prevention of injuries from falls Reduction in number of emergency room visits Increased independence/less personal assistance Reduction of work absence by having back-up/secondary equipment Value of increased time producing homework with refurbished laptop Calculation to determine value of waste kept out of landfills or value of repurposed scrapped materials.
