Streamline your budgeting process with the Alio Budget Preparation System (BPS)! Bring your laptops! We will walk through the setup and process together.
Create multiple budge scenarios to review for the new fiscal year based on input from the school board or from known changes to the district’s budget for the next year. Merge scenarios to play with different groups and numbers before finalizing one budget.
Learn how to enable the principals and selected staff to log in and key budget amounts. Use the Budge Prep Calculator to copy prior year budget amounts and increase the budget by a percent or dollar amount. Learn how to utilize a zero-based budget (ZBB) in which all expenses must be justified.
Print reports showing 2020 budget against the current 2021 budget entries and run reports comparing up to five years.
BPS integrates with Position Control and Salary Administration modules. We will discuss how these modules can provide different budget views for next year’s salaries and benefits.
When complete, the budget scenarios are loaded into the Financial Accounting System (FAS) Budget Entry module to perform a final review and post the budget to the general ledger.
