Condensed Statement of Financial Operations
At March 31, 2010
% Change 2010 2009
Total Expenses (6%) 5,647,818 6,019,267
Total Revenues (4%) 1,033,960 1,082,013
Net Cost of Operations (7%) 4,613,858  4,937,254 

Total expenses for 2009-10 amounted to $ 5.6 million compared to $ 6.0 million (6% decrease) spent in 2008-09. This brought a lapse of $1.7 million of budgetary funding for 2009-10. This lapse is attributable to the fact that CICS receives funding to serve in the range of 110 to 120 conferences a year, however only 75 conferences occurred in 2009-10. The other expenses variation is dependent on the location of the conferences since most expenses are incurred for professional services (interpretation and translation) and transportation.
