Nestlé was formed in 1905 by the merger of the Anglo-Swiss Milk Company, established in 1866 by brothers George Page and Charles Page, and Farine Lactée Henri Nestlé, founded in 1866 by Henri Nestlé (born Heinrich Nestle). The company grew significantly during the First World War and again following the Second World War, expanding its offerings beyond its early condensed milk and infant formula products. The company has made a number of corporate acquisitions, including Crosse & Blackwell in 1950, Findus in 1963, Libby’s in 1971, Rowntree Mackintosh in 1988, and Gerber in 2007.

    Monitoring the Budget

  • I include a rough estimate of the item’s cost in my project’s budget.
  • I can develop this rough estimate by using my prior experience, by checking with others who have purchased similar items in the past, or by checking with my procurement department. Usually, I don’t check with specific vendors or supplies when developing this rough estimate.

  • I submit a written, approved request for the item to my procurement department.
  • This request specifies the rough estimate of the cost included in my project budget and any upper limit that the actual cost can’t exceed. The project manager or his designee approves it, and anyone else who controls the expenditure of project funds (such as the finance department) approves it.

  • My procurement department selects a vendor and submits a purchase order.
  • The purchase order formally requests the vendor to furnish I the item and specifies the procurement department’s estimate of the price.

  • The vendor agrees to provide the item I requested.
  • The vendor provides I written confirmation that he will sell I the item, together with the item’s price (including applicable taxes and shipping and handling charges) and the projected delivery date.

  • I receive and accept the item but aren’t yet billed for it.
  • I receive the item and verify that it meets the agreed specifications. If I don’t accept the item after the vendor makes repeated attempts to fix any problems I have with it, my procurement department cancels the purchase order and I begin looking for a different vendor or a different item that will meet my needs.

  • I or my finance department receives a bill for the item.
  • This bill details the item’s final cost, together with associated discounts, taxes, and shipping and handling charges.

  • My finance department disburses funds to pay for the item.
  • The bill for my item is paid with money from my project’s funds.

    Contingency Plan

    A budget variance is the difference between the budgeted or baseline amount of expense or revenue, and the actual amount. The budget variance is favorable when the actual revenue is higher than the budget or when the actual expense is less than the budget.

    Those budget variances that are uncontrollable usually originate in the marketplace, when customers do not buy the company’s products in the quantities or at the price points anticipated in the budget. The result is actual revenues that may vary substantially from expectations.

    Some budget variances can be eliminated through the simple aggregation of line items in the budget. For example, if there is a negative electricity budget variance of $2,000 and a positive telephone expense budget variance of $3,000, the two line items could be combined for reporting purposes into a utilities line item that has a net…
