Question
Number 3
City University uses a process cost system to accumulate costs incurred in handling student
applications in the admissions department. When an application is completed, it is forwarded to
the appropriate academic department for final processing. The following processing and cost
data pertain to March.
1.
Applications in process on March 1
Applications started in March
Completed applications during March
Applications still in process at March 31
were 100% complete as to materials (forms)
and 75% complete as to conversion costs.

In an effort to improve efficiency, City University has changed their admissions
procedures. Instead of adding all of the materials at the beginning of the process,
they have decided to add half of the materials at the end of the process right before
the applications are transferred to the academic departments. This has resulted in
$2,000 savings in March's direct materials costs (beginning direct materials
not affected). Determine the equivalent units of service (production) and the cost
per equivalent unit for materials based on this change. If City University processes
12,000 applications during a typical year, what is the total dollar amount of savings
that will result from this change?
