The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Montgomery County, Maryland used its own IT developers to create a new home-grown Position Budgeting System (BASIS -Workforce Module) to replace the onerous Hyperion Workforce budgeting system that has been in existence since 2011. The new system is more user-friendly, integrates better with other Oracle and OMB-developed systems, can pivot quickly to address system and report changes on the fly, and provides a more accurate approach to salary and benefit calculations. Features include: Real-time Reports Comparison of budget data between multiple years Easy integration with Oracle General Ledger Department Budget Submission Dashboard (no downloading/uploading reports) More accurate Salary calculations Intuitive Benefit calculations Flexible Compensation calculations User-friendly System for access, navigation, and forms
