Resource Budget Module
WinCAMS Resource Budget Module is used to prepare detailed work plans and budgets for each authorized Project by providing screens to enter:
- Labor Hours and Costs: for each Employee anticipating to work on a Project: Regular and Overtime Hours by calendar month; the program computes projected Labor and Overhead expenses. A second option is to forego the Employee detail entries in lieu of a single, summary Labor budget amount entry.
- Equipment Hours and Costs: for each Vehicle / Equipment anticipating to be assigned to a Project: Usage Hours / Miles by calendar month; the program computes projected Equipment expenses. A second option is to forego the Vehicle detail entries in lieu of a single, summary Equipment budget amount entry.
- Materials Costs: for each Type of Material anticipating to be used for a Project: anticipated Usage by calendar month; the program computes / summarizes projected Materials expenses.
- Other Costs: for each Type of Other Expenses (Contracts, etc.) anticipating to be used for a Project: anticipated Costs by calendar month; the program computes / summarizes projected Other expenses.
Once a budget has been established for a Project in the Resource Budget module, WinCAMS can automatically create Project Appropriations (Budget) entries matching the Resource Budget Plan. This can be done multiple times each Fiscal Year so that Project Budgets can be modified at any time. Each time there is a change in resources allocation (e.g. add or remove Labor or Equipment entries) the program can print a Project summary form that shows the current Fiscal Year Appropriations history.
