Kansas Budget Master (KBM) is a computerized budget preparation package. It is designed specifically for Kansas municipalities - cities, counties, townships, and special districts.
KBM can be used for both large cities and small cities. It can be used by a county with 30 funds as well as a cemetery district with one fund.
KBM is designed to do your entire budget. It will greatly assist you in preparing all of the forms that need to be completed, and provide assurance that they are completed properly.
KBM has many special features. Here are a few:
One Program For All Budgets: You can use one program, KBM, to do budgets for four different types of municipalities. You can move from working with one budget to another with a few clicks of the mouse.
Prior Year Data Rolls Forward to Following Year: Information that you entered for the prior year budget rolls forward to the next year's budget. This avoids the need to re-enter data and saves you time.
Electronic Budget: The entire budget can be produced in PDF (electronic) format at the click of a button for distribution prior to the public hearing. Even after the budget is approved by the governing body, the signed copy of the certificate can be scanned along with a copy of the published notice of hearing, and both pages can be added to the PDF version of the budget to produce a completely electronic budget for submission to the State.
Electronic Notice of Hearing (Budget Summary): The Notice of Hearing (Budget Summary) can be produced in PDF (electronic) format at the click of a button and submitted to the newspaper by email for publication.
Sources of Budget Information: The on-line documentation (Overview) shows the source of most of the information needed for your budget. If you are unsure of the source of information needed for the various data entry screens, this documentation will assist you.
Test Budget For Errors: This feature goes through a series of tests to check for missing budget data and other budget errors.
View/Print Entire Budget: You can view the entire budget, one page at a time, with the option to print each page. This "view" feature allows you to quickly go through the entire budget and selectively print each page. This feature also allows you to print the entire budget with a single click of the mouse.
Budget Review Tips: The on-line documentation (Overview) provides a list of budget review tips to assist you in reviewing your completed budget. These tips will 1) provide additional assurance that your budget is completed properly, and 2) prepare you for presenting the budget to the governing body.
Manuals. Complete on-line documentation is available.
Who Should Use This Software? Kansas Budget Master is designed for anyone who prepares a Kansas municipal budget. You might be a CPA, a county clerk, a city clerk, or the municipality's business officer. If you have prepared a municipal budget previously without KBM, you will greatly appreciate the ease with which you can prepare a budget with KMB. No special training is needed to use KBM.
First Time Users of KBM: If you have not previously installed KBM on your computer, you will need a CD (or you can download the Setup file). After you have done a complete installation you can install upgrades using the upgrade files downloadable from this website.
