Number of employees
Calculate the total
budgeted direct and allocated cost for Liberal Arts (LA) under the direct
Under the step-down allocation method the Facility Support (FS)
costs are allocated first
followed by the Central Administration (CA) costs.
Calculate the total
budgeted direct and
allocated cost for Professional Studies (PS) under the step-down allocation method.
Continue Gator University: The actual direct costs of Central Administration (CA) during the current year
were $768,800 including $500,000 of fixed costs.
The actual number of employees in Liberal Arts (LA)
and Professional Studies (PS) were 66 and 30, respectively.
Assume that actual fixed costs are allocated
