Definition: The difference between the actual operating costs and the budgeted costs. This is a standard measurement for any organization.

Performance (October 2016):

The budget variance for the month of October was unfavorable at 7.7% over the forecast, mostly due to unfavorable variance in labor and contractual services costs. The 2017 Fiscal Year-to-Date (months of July through October) budget variance is favorable at 3.2% below the forecast, mostly due to favorable variances in labor, contractual services, fuel and material and supplies costs.
