What kind of things would you look for after receiving forecast submissions from different program areas? What would be a red flag?

2 Answers

over allocation of expenses if it was way over the budget for the year and sometime, the budget admin tends to make errors. Watch for the variance analysis ( bud to forecast , or forecast to forecast) Less

Red flag can include: 1. The complete omission of cost information especially where there is a change in policy or investment decision. Sometime it may be that creation of a new position is considered thereby need for a new employee, such information may be missing in the forecast. 2. Inconsistency: Look out for inconsistency in any of the cost line items, for instance, if inflation price index was applied at 1.02% to each cost item but one of the items is having a markup of 3%, there is a red flag there.

City of Scottsdale

Mundane run of the mill---How do you see yourself in five years; How do you forecast revenues? Overall interviewer/s were positive pleasant people but glaring red flags were given. Red flag number one: when I asked questions at the end of the interview only the manager was allowed to answer--in fact only one of the three subordinates responded during this round and that was only after after the manager gave her permission. Red flag number two: the manager stated the current staff was half of what it needed to be. Red flag number three: during my entire interview I did not see one of the three subordinates smile once. Ultimately I was not offered job, in hindsight I am thankful for that---I felt like I dodged a bullet. (Remember, you are interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you)

1 Answers

Most the time I smiled and gave bland answers to their bland questions.
