About PBF

SAP Public Budget Formulation is an add-on component that provides a collaborative environment to accommodate the requirements of the end-to-end public sector budget formulation process.

SAP Public Budget Formulation is a web-based application based on SAP NetWeaver technology platform. PBF can be integrated with SAP systems and non-SAP systems. For instance, historical data such as the actual budget or the last approved budget can be used as a starting point to prepare the next budget. In addition, HR historical data can extensively be used to build simulations to budget the personnel expenses. Grant, Project and Performance data can all be integrated.

Our latest version PBF 8.1 was released on October 18 2013 and includes some enhancements like Excel Download, File Upload, Pay Period based PEP Calculations, Budget Form Copy functionality and more.
