The Hyperion Planning and Budgeting module provides a comprehensive, out-of-the-box position budgeting solution that captures most of the attributes associated with both positions and employees. Positions and/or employees FTE levels are assigned with start and end dates. This allows positions or employees to be budgeted as part-time employees (less than 1.0 FTE for the entire year), part-year employees, or a combination of both providing tremendous flexibility with FTE appropriation and budgeting.
Position elements such as position type (single Incumbent, multiple incumbent, contract, etc.), position title, salary basis, default weekly hours, adjustment and anniversary dates, and spread characteristics are tracked within the budget system. Position/employee changes can be frozen by simply removing future adjustments or not applying adjustments to flagged positions. In addition, new positions can be created during budgeting and included in budget appropriations only if approved. New positions are maintained in a separate hierarchy from existing positions to allow reporting of new position costs. BTRG has also developed a RIF enhancement that allows organizations to track costs associated with deleted positions.
