Budget systems improvements
One Washington is currently involved with two efforts to make budget system improvements:
Budget Development System Modernization
Since the Office of Financial Management (OFM) replaced the enterprise Budget Development System in June 2018, state agencies have successfully submitted their budget requests to OFM using the new Agency Budget System, or ABS. Those agency budget submittals are available to the public on the new Agency Budget Requests online repository. OFM is now working to add new features in ABS, including the agency recast of activities, by summer 2019.
Budget Line of Business Systems Modernization
OFM continues to modernize the internal core budget applications used by OFM staff to manage the state budget process. Additional modifications to meet OFM business needs, new features and custom reports are being added to this suite of seven applications: WinSum, BuildSum, Transportation Projects, Transportation Fund Balance, Fiscal Reports, Groupings and Budget Outlook.
To finish this project, Phase 4 will enhance integrations with ABS as well as decommission the OFM legacy systems replaced by the new applications.
