Corporate Services Unit Report Tabled 
Corporate Services report for July and August were tabled and the following specific 
matters were discussed: 

September ytd activity was discussed

There is a surplus of $131K against a budgeted deficit of $85K, a budget
variance of $216k.

DIA invoice is due by 19 July; and was paid on 19 August.  This delay resulted in
breaking a term investment and sacrificing the interest earned to ensure we
had funds to pay the July invoices. The Bank waived the penalty charge.

The surplus is largely due the payment of CVOD Levy by a number of providers
who have opted to pay the Levy in a lump sum rather than on a quarterly basis.

Labelling body revenue $9K under budget.

Personnel expenditure is under budget with the recruitment of an SCA
underway and the resignation of the PA mid-August.

Annual leave remains low, while sick leave stable.
