Personnel budgeting can be extremely complex. Not only do governments budget for an assortment of positions, they must take into account position counts, service levels, staffing ratios, overtime, various funding sources, collective bargaining requirements, political pressures, and the need to forecast fringe benefits related to insurance, pensions, or OPEB. Managing this complex task efficiently requires that the finance or budget officer utilize a sound approach, and also coordinate resources from across the organization, that include finance, human resources, and many other departments. This seminar will provide best practice recommendations for creating and managing a position control structure, establishing the structure within an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, and using that structure for budgeting personnel costs, techniques for estimating salary and fringe benefit costs, and managing positions throughout the year.
