French term or phrase: dépassement du budget
I know what "depassement du budget" means but it sounds as if they're saying this is a good thing. This text talks a lot about meeting and exceeding objectives/expectations (sometimes "budgeted" objectives) so I'm wondering if "budget" here refers to "objectives" rather than the budget.
Thanks, Karen

Explanation:
That's the term.....do better than yes..

Karen

if this is sales= exceed budget targets

if not= [not spend too much]come in under budget

so it depends on what the budget is for

It all depends on whether the budget is for making money or income OR if in say, the purchasing department of the company, he person can spend even less and get more.

See what I mean?

Without knowing what the \'\'poste\'\' is for [purchasing, sales, etc.], there is no way to tell, IMO

Grading comment
I know I'm grading this early, but "budget targets" is exactly right (they do talk a lot about "targets"). The idea is to set performance standards and determine if the employee has met or exceeded these standards. I was confused because "depassement du budget" can mean "cost overruns." Thanks very much, Jane. Karen
