EX25-8

The Theater Arts Guild of Dallas (TAG-D) employs five people in its Publication De- partment. These people lay out pages for pamphlets, brochures, magazines, and other publications for the TAG-D productions. The pages are delivered to an outside company for printing. The company is considering an outside publication service for the layout work. The outside service is quoting a price of $13 per layout page. The budget for the Publication Department for the current year is as follows:

Salaries 22400

Benefits 36000

Supplies 21000

Office Expenses 39000

Office Depreciation  28000

Computer Depreciation 24000

Total 372000

 The department expects to lay out 24,000 pages for the current year. The Publication Department office space and equipment would be used for future administrative needs, if the department’s function were purchased from the outside.

a. Prepare a differential analysis dated February 22 to determine whether TAG-D should lay out pages internally (Alternative 1) or purchase layout services from the outside (Alternative 2).

b. On the basis of your analysis in part (a), should the page layout work be purchased from an outside company. 

c. What additional considerations might factor into the decision making?
