The Central Budget Management System (CBMS)

The Central Budget Management System (CBMS) manages the flow of financial information between Finance and Commonwealth Government entities to facilitate cash and appropriation management, preparation of budget documentation and financial reporting.

CBMS is comprised of the following modules:

  • Decision Making
  • Annual Estimates
  • Monthly Profiles
  • Monthly Actuals
  • Annual Actuals
  • Cash Management
