Budget Adjustment

Managing budget adjustments throughout the year is a challenge for all Public Sector organisations.  M-Power’s Budget Adjustment application allows you to keep track of changes in an integrated enterprise budgeting solution.

Budget and Forecasting

The ability to prepare a forecast is a critical in today’s ever changing environment. A forecast provides an up to date view of how the organisation is performing with the latest assumptions and actual performance to date.

  • Forecasts can be performed as regularly as needed – monthly, quarterly or on a rolling basis.
