October 10, 2007B&C WG8 History of NANP Fund Size and Contribution Factor
October 10, 2007B&C WG9 Welch & Co. Report Talking Points By the end of June 2008, the fund balance is expected to be 2.59M, significantly more than the budget indicated. 1.6M more than anticipated. We originally budgeted the pANI cost for $517,000, (cost of contract) and we will now only pay $87,000. The $517,000 was for a 5 year period, PA only managed the pANI for 1 year because it is now included in the new pooling contract. There will be no additional cost at this point under this fund for pANI. For Pooling alone, as a result of the most recent Pooling Administration contract, the NANP fund will require $77,000 less per month which reduces the overall amount needed in the budget by $772,000. This amount will become part of the end of budget year surplus Note that in the absence of a new pooling contract we forcasted the PA portion of the budget in the exact manor we had years previously. (used the same budget). We can use the surplus for emergencies if we need it.
