Monthly Operational Expenses Dashboard

Slide Content

The slide presents a comparison of planned versus actual operational expenses over a series of cost centers (CC). "Planned Expenses" are listed as 40.0 million USD, which is the budgeted amount allocated for operational costs. "Actual Expenses" amounted to 36.5 million USD, indicating the real money spent. The "Difference" shows a favorable variance of -3.5 million USD or -9%, meaning the actual expenses were lower than planned. A bar graph compares the expenses for 8 different cost centers, each showing planned in green and actual in blue.
