The cash flow adjustment IS based on TPPC. If you calculate the TPPC using the formula:

TPPC = Ending Funded Status - Employer Contribution - Beg Funded Status

TPPC = -4,774 - 693 - (-4,984)

TPPC = -483

The cash flow adjustment is based on Employer Contribution (693) being greater than TPPC (483) by 210. Since EC > TPPC, the over-funded amount of 210 (usually needs to be adjusted after-tax but question says to exclude tax effect) results as an inflow in CFO and outflow in CFF.
