McLean, VA – September 21, 2017

PPC announced a newly awarded subcontract from Performa USA to modernize the Maryland Enterprise Budget System (MD EBS). Under this seven-year subcontract consisting of a three-year base period and two two-year options, valued at approximately $5M, PPC plays several critical roles in the development of the MD EBS including building the core functionality in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud and performing operations and maintenance.

Provides a user-friendly, intuitive budgeting system that will provide a single standard interface at the agency level for budget submissions, allowing for the overall budget development effort to be appropriately distributed and coordinated between stakeholders during budget development. 4. Creates a central warehouse for budget requests which eliminate unnecessary and repetitive manual data entry while providing agencies centralized budget management repository, interfaces for importing of external data necessary for budget development, and centralized and standardized EBS tools for reports, analyses, recommendations, print content and supporting documentation. 5.

Supports complex budget development with interfaces between the budgeting system and systems of record for pertinent enterprise, as well as, the ability to use previous-year actuals and current-year appropriations as needed during budget development. This advanced functionality eliminates the need for manual incorporation of data from Personnel and Accounting systems. 7. Improve data quality and integrity in the budget life cycle through automation of validation of figures and formulas between multiple data sets and systems. 8. Real-time tracking and reporting of actual expenditures against budget appropriations. Providing the ability to prepare ongoing analysis of actuals vs. appropriations during the budget year. Improved budget awareness will allow budget managers to dynamically create, process and incorporate amendments electronically.

This work expands PPC’s rapidly growing presence in the Performance Budgeting solutions and our partnership with Performa. Together the Performa-PPC team have collaboratively worked together and deployed similar solutions in Virginia and Tennessee. In fact, once Maryland goes live, this solution, integrated using each state’s specific business processes and workflows, will support over $110B of performance budgeting per year.

“PPC is pleased to support this critical project for Maryland. Our work in State Budgeting is award winning and adds to our growing list of mission-critical, agile development, and cloud-based legacy system modernization efforts.” said Paul Strasser, PPC Chief Executive Officer and President.
