Computations to support this conclusion follow: Contribution margin lost if the housekeeping .......................................... program is dropped ($80000) Fixed costs that can be avoided: ............................................. Liability insurance $15000 ........................... Program administrator’s salary 37000 52000 Decrease in net operating income for the ..................................... organization as a whole ($28000) Depreciation on the van is a sunk cost and the van has no salvage value since it would be donated to another organization. The general administrative overhead is allocated and none of it would be avoided if the program were dropped; thus it is not relevant to the decision. Current Total Total If House- keeping Is Dropped Difference: Net Operating Income Increase or (Decrease) .................................... Revenues $900000 $660000 ($240000) ........................ Variable expenses 490000 330000 160000 ..................... Contribution margin 410000 330000 (80000) Fixed expenses: ............................ Depreciation* 68000 68000 0 ...................... Liability insurance 42000 27000 15000 .

To give the administrator of the entire organization a clearer picture of the financial viability of each of the organization’s programs, the general administrative overhead should not be allocated. It is a common cost that should be deducted from the total program segment margin. Total Home Nursing Meals on Wheels House- keeping ............................
