4-Gov Budget Preparation lets you create and analyze budgets for the upcoming year while using prior years of information and current fiscal year data. Future year forecasts for multi-year budgets are developed with “layer formulas” for multiple increasing/decreasing factors. Budgets developed and adopted are used for appropriation control, expenditure and revenue monitoring throughout the year.
Statistics and performance measures are also entered in the budget system, with the actual figures tracked in 4-Gov Financial and Management Applications. The Budget Preparation applications allows officials to easily perform "What if..." types of analyses to determine the effect of requested employee raises as well as evaluate the true result of budget cuts. It will support changes to the initial budget, as well as keep an audit trail of changes through the adoption of the final budget.
