Isidore CBMS is a Centralised Budgeting tool designed for Jurisdictions/Governments to manage their budget process from setting of budgets prior to the start of the cycle to managing expenditure as actuals replace budget values.
Seemless integration with the FMIS and instant consolidation to the central agency are key to making budgeting work and ensuring it is a valuable process, not just a meaningless task which consumes effort.
