Performance analysis

2023 Q3 (Q1 2023-2025 biennium)

Cash flows currently lower than original projections

WSDOT originally planned to have approximately $344.5 million in cumulative, combined PEF improvement and preservation cash flows at the end of the first quarter of the 2023-2025 biennium, and had $187.3 million in actual expenditures. The actual expenditures were on target with the currrent plan but approximately $157.3 million (45.6%) less than the orginial plan for biennium.

Current and actual cash flows can vary from originally planned cash flows for a number of reasons. For example, emergent projects may add cash flow to the current reporting quarter, whereas project deletions can remove cash flow.

As the biennium continues, WSDOT uses the original plan as a goal while working to meet the projections in the current plan. The current plan is more fluid and reflects quarterly changes due to projects being emergent, emergency, delayed, deferred, advanced or deleted.
