Exercises


To complete the exercises, use the data in Table 9.7 and Table 9.8 and the spreadsheet titled “Budget Tools 09 Exercises.”

  1. Use the financial statements from Charlottesville, Virginia, to conduct your own analysis. Two years are provided so that a comparison between years can be made. Students are advised to use the format in the spreadsheet in Table 9.4 and add an additional column for FY 2005 so that the ratios can be compared side by side. (Please note that NPS used in the days payable ratio is 20 percent of the total expenditures.)

When students compare the ratios, they should focus on measures of liquidity, long-term solvency, and asset management ratios.
