Please kindly help me with this Cost Benefit Analysis Proposal for New Employee. Please provide work in detailed step by step instructions thank you very much. ASAP.

Proposal for New Employee
Scenario: You are the Senior Supervisor for the Admissions Department of Valleybrook Hospital, a 500-bed hospital full service health care facility. In the past three years, admissions at Valleybrook have increased an average of 15% per year.
Up to now, the admissions staff members have filed their own information but increases in admissions, filing is backing up. Observing this, you need to prepare a justification proposal for a part-time filing clerk. Use the information below, Figure 16-9 and Table 16- 2 to calculate a Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA).
Prepare the proposal using the CBA template including thorough justification and the CBA you have configured.
Facts:
• Currently have 5 full-time admissions clerks at $12 per hour or $12, 544.00 monthly cost (including $1344 fringe costs). The admissions clerks are so busy with admissions and paperwork related to admittance that they do not have adequate time to file all their paperwork.
• Part-time filing clerk needed at 20 hours (no fringe) at $10 per hour
• Increase in admissions has increased revenue an average of $300,000 monthly. With expenses factored in, there is a profit for Valleybrook of approximately $100,000 monthly.
• Profit configured conservatively at 5% increase, Valleybrook would still realize a clear profit of approximately $30,000 monthly.
Option 1: Existing admissions clerks can work overtime. Each clerk will work 3 hours overtime each week.
Option 2: Hire a part-time filing clerk.
