Note

  1. FTE’s, Salary and O & M expenditures for the Rehabilitation and EL Programs for the 2010-2011 fiscal year were provided to the evaluation team by Service Delivery and Commemoration Branch and Policy Programs and Partnerships Branch, showing a projected 185 FTE required for the Rehabilitation Program and 15 FTE’s for the Earnings Loss Program. Salaries for the Rehabilitation Program were projected to be $12.1 M and O & M expenditures equaling $878,800 (including both head office and field costs) in the 2010-2011 fiscal year. It is important to note that the salary costs for the Vocational Rehabilitation Program are included in the estimates costs provided to the evaluation team. Salary for the Earnings Loss Program was projected to be $893,632 and O & M expenditures $23,984 equaling (including both head office and field costs) in the 2010-2011 fiscal years.
  2. The Salary projections were then discounted back by 2% per year for the High estimate, 4% per year for the Medium estimate and 6% per year for the low estimate. These discounted salaries were then added together to get the total Salary estimated costs for the four year life of the program.
  3. O & M expenditures were discounted by 2% each year for inflation. Each discounted O & M expenditure was added together to get the estimated O & M costs for the four year life of the program.
  4. Treatment expenditures for Rehabilitation Program ranged from a high of $31.3M which represented all treatment expenditures for individuals within their rehab plan dates, to a low of $20.4M which is the treatment expenditures for individuals who are Rehabilitation only individuals (non DA/DP). The medium range expenditures of $26.6M is based on the treatment expenditures for individuals released post 2006.
  5. Treatment, Salary and O & M values were used to extrapolate costs for the Rehabilitation Program (including vocational rehabilitation salary but not contractor costs, Voc Contractor costs are in the Employment section) over the 4 years since its creation. High, medium, and low estimates were created and the medium estimate shows the total costs for the program from 2006-2010 was $73.8M (or approximately $18,322 per individual). Earnings Loss expenditures were developed using the same logic and the medium estimate shows total costs for the program amounting to $65.9M (or approximately $30,797 per individual).
  6. Health Benefits was calculated in the same fashion as Rehabilitation and Earnings Loss with High Medium and Low estimates. As VAC determines eligibility only, and therefore, no utilization data is available. The average cost to determine Health Benefits eligibility ( Salary and O & M expenditures only) is $756K (or approximately $571 per individual)

FTE’s, Salary and O&M expenditures for the CTS Program for the 2010-2011 fiscal year were provided to the evaluation team by Service Delivery and Commemoration Branch and Policy Programs and Partnerships Branch, showing a projected 18 FTE required for the CTS Program. Salary for the CTS Program was projected to be $1.2 M (including both head office and field costs) for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. The Salary projections were then discounted back by 2% per year for the High estimate, 4% per year for the Medium estimate and 6% per year for the low estimate. These discounted salaries were then added together to get the total Salary estimated costs for the four year life of the program.
  2. O&M expenditures, estimated at $84k for 2010-2011 were discounted by 2% each year for inflation. Each discounted O&M expenditure was added together to get the estimated O&M costs for the life of the program.
  3. Contract expenditures for the CTS were subdivided into costs for the Workshops, and costs for Career Counseling and Job Finding to provide a more accurate description of costs and costs per individual.
