The Wesleyan Budget Management and Planning System
The Budget Management and Planning System (BMAPS)
project was undertaken to develop improved business processes for the
development and implementation of the University budget. The improved

personnel and non-personnel budgeting and all phases of the budget process,
including budget development, implementation, management and long-term
budget planning. In response to requests that each officer have greater
access and control over budget information, the system will be designed to
distribute budget information in a timely manner and provide greater
