Modelling used Avsec’s current target levels (3 min wait on average, 95% of passenger’s end to end experience lasts 8-12 minutes.)
A number of capital options are available to Avsec to fund its future increased capital requirements. These include; third-party loan, capital injection (subject to 6% capital charge), operating lease or crown loan. The intention is for Avsec to seek a Crown Loan to fund its capital investment programme. At the current time this is assessed as providing the most cost effective way of funding Avsec’s future capital requirements.
Avsec costs are allocated directly where possible (i.e. depreciation on equipment in a domestic only terminal is fully allocated to the domestic reserve). The number of hours for each duty is assigned either to International or Domestic or shared duties by airport (with shared duties reallocated to International and Domestic by relative passenger volumes at that airport) to drive an appropriate allocation of staffing costs to each reserve. Other costs such as overheads are then similarly allocated based on the percentage of other costs already allocated to each reserve. (e.g. 60% International 37% Domestic, 3% Third Party)
These relate to Infrastructure expenses such as rent, building maintenance and expenses, IT costs, support services, travel and equipment repairs & maintenance.
Value for money is the balance between efficiency, security outcome and passenger facilitation. Using the Quintiq workforce management tool the impacts of increased delivery against acceptable targets can be modelled to ensure the balance is met. Avsec has a number of measures in place to monitor this balance for example, included in the Statement of Performance Expectations 2018/19(external link) the average passenger wait times considered acceptable within the parameters of effective and efficient service delivery is less than or equal to three minutes.
The balance between over delivery and under delivery of services impacts on both efficiency and facilitation.
