How We Help 

Build a Better Budget Model

We’ll help you develop a single framework for the annual budgeting process based on a comprehensive view
of your institution’s strategic plans and available resources. This framework identifies, defines, and sequences
the key participants, deliverables, and dependencies in the budget process. 

A good financial budgeting model will establish strong connections between the financial plan, annual budget, and year-end forecasts. 
We’ll help you evaluate the financial implications of strategic options while the strategic plan is in development and quantify resources
required long-term to support your strategy at an acceptable level of risk.
