Title Predict Budget Requirements
Organisation Leeds University - Paul Davy
The University of Leeds has 32,000 students and 7,000 staff. Paul Davy works in the International Travel Department as a Finance Officer. The university requires each department to predict their budget requirements over the coming 5 years. Paul finds that typically staff costs rise at about 3.5% annually, and non-staff costs rise at about 2.5%. These figures have to be adjusted when looking outside the UK to countries such as India and Japan, as their inflation rates can be substantially different to ours. During this exercise, he will use an ICT spreadsheet, presenting and interpreting data, percentages and decimals.
