Integral Part Of The Regional Council Management System
As part of the RCMS family, the Budget Preparation & Management System provides instant, integrated access to critical data from other RCMS systems, as needed. The system makes it possible for any authorized person throughout your organization to individually generate or revise budget plans. During the budget development process, staff members have viewing and reporting access to current RCMS accounting information about employees, existing project costs and budget details.
The system gives administration the ability to set allocation rates, staff rates, and position rates for each year. Approved personnel can budget related staff and other expenses for their projects over multiple time periods. Cost allocation rates can be entered for one or more fiscal year(s). This eliminates the need to compute rates each time, and makes staff budgeting faster and simpler.
Plans can be consolidated and submitted on- line with just a few keystrokes, thus eliminating unnecessary manual work and paper duplication. Of course, "What If" analyses can be conducted without jeopardizing live data. Staff utilization and various other agency 'impact' reports and queries are available for each budget revision being considered.
Upon final review, consolidation and approval, the budgets and/or budget changes can be automatically posted by your accounting management to the active agency budget in the Regional Council Management System .
