actualsA more extreme version would be to compare and explain budget and actuals only for an organization as a whole.The figures for 1990 and 1991 are forecasts, the others are actuals.Hence, many public sector operating statements do not only show actuals but also budgets and comparisons of actuals with budgets.You will then have an easy check when the actuals come up.The actuals remain of importance but in these kinds of organizations they take an equal place alongside the budget.This practice continuously compares budgeted amounts with actuals and as such is providing some measure of performance against a predetermined standard.
