The Connolly Communications Company, Inc. is looking for a construction company to lay 18 miles of telephone cable as part of its new factory in the country of Mishkalon. They have narrowed down their choices to the Lewis Construction Company and Spaulding Enterprises (hereinafter, “Spaulding”). Lewis has presented the lower cost bid by approximately 20 percent, and has promised to have the work completed in a shorter period of time by at least 4 months. The company is known for being fast and efficient, so Connelly is not concerned about cost over-runs and delays in completion. Further, with their budget for the new factory they estimate they could hire at least 20 additional works for the factory than if they accepted Spaulding’s bid. However, Lewis is also known for an almost scorched earth policy toward the environment when getting the job done. Spaulding is a leader in the sustainability area, and has received awards for its care and restoration of the environment as part of their projects.

Which company do you think Connelly should choose for the project and why?

The Super X Credit Corporation is one of the industry leaders in credit card processing systems. They are known for being at the forefront of advances in technology, and offering some of the lowest prices for their services. However, Super X has designed their programs to secretly track customer data based upon the transactions their system handles, and in turn uses that data in a joint venture with Wesley Marketing to offer other products and services to these customers. Both Super X and Wesley believe they are doing nothing wrong as they are simply using the information collected to help customers get better deals, and do not share personal information about customers outside of the company.

Do you think Super X’s actions are ethical? Why or why not? Your initial response is due

Assignment 2: Strategic Budgeting

A newspaper publishing company produces and distributes a magazine to its subscribers once each month. Although the company performs the entire publishing and distributing of the newspaper in-house, they have contacted with another magazine publisher to perform the printing and binding function for the magazine.

The contract for outside printing and binding of the magazine will soon expire and the newspaper company is reviewing its options. A member of the budgeting committee has reviewed the company’s financial reports and believes that the variable costs of producing the magazine could be significantly reduced by purchasing equipment to print and bind the magazine in house. However, in-house production would result in an increase in the company’s fixed costs.

Because of your background in cost accounting and cost management, the committee is looking to you for guidance in this decision. You have decided that helping the committee understand the types of analysis that should be employed in this situation will gain support for the action you recommend.

Prepare a report in which you:

  • Explain the value of preparing a contribution income statement.
  • Describe the concept of sensitivity analysis and explain the value of applying it during any budgeting process.
  • Define operating leverage and explain how analysis of operating leverage alternatives would be applied to this decision.
  • Describe strategic reasons why the company should bring printing and binding of their magazine in house.
  • Describe strategic reasons for not bringing printing and binding of their magazine in house.
  • Illustrate application of the five steps of strategic decision making for CVP analysis to this decision scenario.

Write a 3–5-page report in Microsoft Word format. Apply APA standards to your work.

Present your work in MS Word format. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M4_A2.doc.
