his week we assemble the budget for Reynolds, and it will be a departure from their normal budget as they have, obviously, expanded. The annual budget should reflect all the upgrades and changes you’ve considered in weeks 1-3. There may also be a need for a supplemental budget dedicated solely to the upgrade and integration projects. However, there still needs to be an annual budget submitted to management.
