Summary of Revenue, Expenses and Appropriations Graph


The chart above clearly demonstrates the continued financial constraints facing CCOHS. Maintaining revenue generation to finance 50% of operations is a challenge. CCOHS' funding base was determined in 2001-2, which included significantly higher revenues than current years. This is partly due to the declines in the US dollars from 52% at its highest point. During this period, foreign sales of products and services were priced in US dollars. CCOHS carefully monitors expenditures to remain within our funding sources.
