Budgeting Analysis Tool (BAT)

An organization's budget tells the world about its priorities, culture, and core values. In government, a budget is also a promise to the public that their tax dollars are being managed responsibly and with integrity. As stewards of the public trust, it is vital that we have the very best tools available to ensure we make good on that important promise.

The Budgeting Analysis Tool, otherwise known as BAT, is a budget planning and development application that will serve as an all-in-one solution for forecasting, preparing, monitoring and reporting on departmental budgets. With an eye towards full integration with the Enterprise Resources Planning system, BAT consolidates information from all County human resources and financial utilities—including FAMIS, PeopleSoft, and the system used by Public Housing and Community Development—while enabling employees involved in budget preparation to operate on a single platform.

BAT's key functions and features will help:

  • Create transparency by enabling users to view division budget information prior to inputting data into the system
  • Automate updates to tables of organization, manage position vacancies, automatically calculate salary and fringe costs
  • Streamline the preparation of budget books, reports and committee presentations
  • Save time on repetitive tasks seamlessly integrating Microsoft Office Suite programs with the system’s built-in features

Training sessions are being scheduled to communicate the details of the transition with departmental budget professionals. For more information, email Grace Ferreira at or call 305-375-5143.
