Phoenix Convention Center—Economic and Fiscal Impact Analysis

Phoenix Convention Center—Economic and Fiscal Impact Analysis

As a result of the Phoenix Convention Center’s construction and operation, the State of Arizona General Fund has received approximately $97.9 million in tax revenues. This amount is $56.8 million greater than the $41.1 million the State has distributed to the City of Phoenix to pay off the debt issued to construct the Convention Center. In the future, between 180,000 and 200,000 visitors per year will need to attend regional and national conventions and trade shows at the Convention Center to generate tax revenues in excess of distributions from the State to the City.

Duncan Unified School District

Duncan Unified School District

In fiscal year 2012, Duncan Unified School District’s student achievement was similar to peer district averages, and the District operated efficiently overall. Although the District’s administrative costs per pupil were slightly higher than the peer districts’ average, the District has taken steps to reduce its costs by reducing its number of administrative positions. The District’s plant operations, food service, and transportation programs were efficient with lower costs per square foot, per meal, and per mile, respectively, than peer districts’ averages. However, the District needs to improve its purchasing and computer controls. The District also needs to accurately determine, and report to the Arizona Department of Education, its ridership information to help ensure the District is properly funded and to allow it the ability to calculate and monitor transportation performance measures such as cost per rider and bus capacity utilization. Further, the District should ensure that its inmate worker documentation complies with statute.
