Pangelinan says the Commission foudn that GDOE had a negative variance report exceeding 10% of the approved budget amount in the Overtime category.  While Pangelinan says the EFSC is not necessarily concerned about the unbudgeted over, it is something GDOE will have to resolve on the next budget cycle.  The Superintendent will also have to submit a report on how GDOE will do so.
