Analysis
It seems that the project will be over budget. The Estimate at Completion for typical
variances is $10,973.29 and for atypical variances is $13,815. The errors do not seem
atypical because phase 2 and 3 were over-budget. Although the company states that phase
2 was expected to be over-budget, phase 3 at this point is over-budget by $200. While this
isn't much, this is still more than they claimed and it is quite possible that these errors will
carry over into phase 4. This project will definitely be over the original planned budget of
$12,000. If this is the case, further action should be taken to find out how the money is
being spent within "Bug Busters".
