Budgeting Analysis Tool
The Budgeting Analysis Tool, or BAT, is a budget planning and development application that servesas 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.

- 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.
