Process Details and FAQ: Capital Budgeting & Reporting

What is included in the Capital Budgeting & Reporting process?

The Capital Budgeting & Reporting process involves coordination between project accountants/coordinators, project managers/leads and senior management to develop and annual budgets used to manage electric and natural gas utilities projects. Accountants and project leads jointly develop the initial budget based on current projects and expected cash flows. That budget is then sent to senior management for approval. If the budget is approved, it is uploaded into the appropriate systems for use in project reporting and analysis. Budget reports are published on a monthly basis and are used to measure planned versus actual spending. If there is a major variance, a meeting between senior management and project leads is typically held to address any potential issues.
