TO: All Grampians Region StaffCopy to:FROM: Finance & Administration ManagerSUBJECT: 2012.13 BudgetDATE: 15
August 2012 File No: D12/39622
 As you are aware there are significant pressures in Victorian Government finances resultingin reduced funding for CFA for this year, and indeed for future years. The CFA Board hasimplemented sizeable reductions across all Directorates and Regions to achieve a balancedbudget; however it is recognised that this is not sustainable into the future. Further work toaddress this challenge is underway. At its meeting held on 7 August, Grampians RLT considered the impact of our reduced
budget allocation for the 2012.13 financial year. Grampians’ funding has been cut by $213k
and we have also been directed to absorb cost increases which are estimated to be in thevicinity of $75k, bringing the real impact of the budget cuts close to $300k. This reductioncomes on top of the budget cuts in 2010/11 ($430k) and our overspend due to increasedcosts in 2011/12 ($254k).Whilst RLT has tried to minimise the impact of the reduced funding on staff, unfortunatelythere will be a number of casual and part time staff impacted. Additionally, RLT has identifieda number of other austerity measures that are required in order for us to meet our budgetallocation.In summary this will mean:-Casual ASO / Training role in D17 reduced from .8 to .4 FTE (4 days to 2 days per week)Casual ASO role D16
reduced from 1 FTE to .6 FTE (core hours over 5 days)
Temporarily shift 1.6 FTE’s from Grampians staffing establishment to project funded roles
