Question 1: Designing a new management accounting system (10 Marks)
You have just been appointed as the new management accountant to manage the transition of the existing Royal Adelaide Hospital to the proposed new site. The hospital has a number of separate departments responsible for direct patient care, such as Accident and Emergency, Intensive Care, Neurology, and Cardiology, as well as a number of support departments such as Radiology and Patient Records. You are a little uncertain as to what your role will be in this new hospital, as consultants have been engaged to design the new management accounting systems. You thought that as a management accountant you would be responsible for developing the new systems!
1. Write a report to senior management explaining how you, as the management accountant, may contribute to the design and operation of the new management accounting systems for the new hospital.
2. Outline the types of management accounting information that you believe senior managers may require on a regular basis (say, weekly and monthly) to manage the operations of the new hospital. Consider both financial and non-financial information.
3. The new hospital plans to invest in the latest computer technology to run various aspects of the organisation, including the management information systems. Discuss the opportunities that this may present for the way in which you supply weekly and monthly reports to managers.

Question 3: Job costing; department overhead cost allocation: tour operator (10 Marks)
Asian Adventure Holidays offers a series of holiday packages aimed at families, seniors and corporate groups. The financial controller, Jack Tallis, is preparing for the annual board meeting and is concerned about the loss that the business sustained in the past year. He has examined the profits for each of the three departments of the business—family, seniors and corporate—and it seems that the corporate department is the source of the problem.
Jack has asked you to assist him to look more closely at the three packages offered by the corporate department to see which holiday packages are yielding profits and which are not. The three packages are to Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. The sales and direct costs of each corporate package for last year are as follows:
    Bali Adventure
    Thailand Discovery
    Malaysian Orienteering
    Number of packages sold
    Number of people per package
    Revenue per person
    $18 000
    $12 000
    $14 000
    Direct cost per package:
    Tour leade
    $5 000
    $12 000
    $9 000
    Tour assistant
    2 000
    3 000
    6 000
    Air travel
    28 000
    30 000
    32 000
    15 000
    26 000
    24 000
    Equipment hire
    4 000
    9 000
    18 000
    15 000
    8 000
To calculate the profitability of each package, a proportion of the overhead costs of running the corporate department needs to be allocated to the three packages. Jack has suggested that these costs could be allocated to each package in proportion to actual sales revenue. For last year these overhead costs were as follows:
    $200 000
    2 000
    Depreciation on equipment
    5 000
    2 000
    Rent and property taxes
    9 000
    Other department costs
    12 000
    $230 000
1. Calculate the profit per package and the total profitability of each of the three corporate packages.
2. Compare the profitability of the three corporate packages.
3. Do you consider that the allocation of the corporate department overhead to packages using actual sales revenue is appropriate? Can you suggest a better method?
4. Suggest what actions the company could take in regard to the three corporate packages.

Question 1
Part 1-
As a management accountant, I have been trained with the necessary skills to provide some useful data and reports to the management for making successful control of business. While designing and implementing the new accounting system these reporting requirements can be instilled in the system which is being developed. I possess all the necessary qualities to administer the successful implementation of new accounting system in the business. It is not only about the reports that the system may provide but also the necessary conclusions which have to be drawn from this system.
Part 2-
Types of management accounting information needed by management of the company-
Forecasts: Forecasts are the predictions about the future numbers that the management may need. These numbers are needed by the management to estimate the future performance by the company. This information may be needed on the monthly, quarterly or annual basis depending on the size of company.
Budgets: Budgets are prepared annually in most of the cases. The budgets are the performance standards that the management sets and which have to be followed by the people in the company for performing business.
Variance Analysis: Variance is the deviation from the budgets. Variance analysis is required to be done on time to time basis for analyzing the performance by the employees of the company. This is done on an annual basis.
