Not to be dismissive, but you are trying to deal in facts when analyzing the numbers. If theRead Morenumbers are fudged by $12-17 mil what can you really decipher from it? Many of the numbers in the presentations are just made up numbers, that is why they can't keep them consistent; they forget which numbers are real and which they fluffed.

At present, I do not discern an ulterior motive in the case I mention in my above comment. –Read Morer ather, just an oversight. However, I could reverse that opinion depending on whether or not an appropriate correction is made to the 2014-15 Financing Plan.

Ergodic- try this exercise as you seem to be sharp with the numbers. Take the 2014-15 budgeted line Read Moreby line and prepare an analysis of the comparable value of the Actual Spent for the last two years. You can then determine where the overestimated expenditures are and by what percentage. When you then compare the actuals, you can determine the actual percentage increase required. Good luck as you will find the wrench they throw into it!
