  • El 54 % del presupuesto que se solicita corresponde a Otras fuentes, en verde en la gráfica. La mayor parte son Contribuciones Voluntarias El 46% de Presupuesto corresponde a Presupuesto Ordinario, dividido de la siguiente manera: 32% de contribuciones señaladas, 3% de ingresos varios y 13% de proporción AMRO
  • El escenario D tiene un Incremento Nominal Cero en el Presupuesto Ordinario Total No se cumplirá con el 9% de las metas del Plan Estratégico de la OPS para el año 2013 Contempla la reducción de 21 puestos de plazo fijo, que equivale a un ahorro de 5.8 millones de dólares ,
  • During the extraordinary session 6 countries supported Scenario D Two countries supported Scenario C USA proposed the inclusion of Scenario E, between D and C, with an increase in assessed contributions of 2.15% The Executive Committee agreed by consensus to endorse Scenario D and include in the statements of the resolution the proposed Scenario E Directing Council could approve Scenario D directly or discuss and select either scenario D or E Scenario C is no longer an option
  • La Organización ha mejorado su eficiencia En el 2008-09 la Organización alcanzó la tasa de eficiencia más alta (25.8). Este indicador mide el costo de la fuerza labora comparado con el total del gasto en una Organización. A menor % más eficiencia.
  • La productividad en el bienio 2008-09 mejoró mucho con respecto a bienios anteriores. La productividad se mide por el casto total en dólares constantes por Equivalente de Tiempo Completo. Equivalente de Tiempo Completo es una persona trabajando a tiempo completo en un año. Este indicador permite medir la fuerza laboral total de la Organización, puestos de plazo fijo más otros puestos como consultores a corto plazo y otros asigandos por el Ministerio de Salud o contratados a través de agencias de empleos.
  • La Organización también ha mejorado su Implementación Presupuestaria. En el bienio 2008-09 se implementó el 94% de los fondos disponibles: 99% de presupuesto ordinario y 89 % de presupuesto de otras fuentes The total budgetary implementation was $525 million (94% of $559 million available for the biennium). This is a significant increase compared to the average implementation rate of the last two biennia (79%). The implementation by organizational levels was consistently above 90%. The high implementation rate of OS (89%) compared to the historical average (69%) reflects the improved programming of resources needed for the biennium, regardless of the availability of funds for the life of projects, thus allowing funds from “other sources”, mainly voluntary contributions, to be aligned with the biennial planning cycle.
  • 19 member states have paid their 2011 assessments in full 5 member states have paid part of their 2011 assessments 15 member states have made no payment toward their 2011 assessments, including 11 member states, which have not made any payments in 2011 No member states are potentially subject to Article 6.B of the PAHO Constitution. 57% of 2011 assessments have been collected ($56.3 million)
  • This slide shows the balance of outstanding arrears of contributions as of 13 June from 2000 through 2010. It highlights the Director's initiative to increase the rate of collection of quota contributions and the success of deferred payment plans, illustrating to dramatic decrease in the balance of arrears due to the Organization. 93,1% of arrears have been collected (including $19.7 million from the US, $5.0 million from Argentina, and $2.7 million from Venezuela), reducing the amount outstanding to $2.1 million (comprised primarily of $1.9 million due from Argentina).
