Planned spending of $158.9 million for 2014–15 was increased by $6.7 million provided through new authorities and transfers, including $2.4 million from collections of repayable contributions, $2.0 million for a transfer from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) related to the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence, $2.0 million for an operating budget carry forward, and $0.3 million for various other minor adjustments.

Actual spending of $162.0 million exceeds planned spending by $3.1 million.  This variance is primarily due to frozen allotments related to personnel, other government initiatives and Federal Council.

Actual FTE utilization is lower than planned as a result of a departmental strategy to review and streamline functions to improve efficiencies for future years.  Results were achieved sooner than planned.
