The head administrator of Jackson County Senior Services, Judith Miyama, is concerned about the organization’s finances and considers the net
operating income of $5,000 last year to be too small. (Last year’s results were very similar to the results for previous years and are
representative of what would be expected in the future.) She feels that the organization should be building its financial reserves at a more
rapid rate in order to prepare for the next inevitable recession. After seeing the above report, Ms. Miyama asked for more information about
the financial advisability of discontinuing the housekeeping program.
The depreciation in housekeeping is for a small van that is used to carry the housekeepers and their equipment from job to job. If the program
were discontinued, the van would be donated to a charitable organization. Depreciation charges assume zero salvage value. None of the general
administrative overhead would be avoided if the housekeeping program were dropped, but the liability insurance and the salary of the program
administrator would be avoided.
