WAG’s to the second decimal – Project Managers Budget Estimates Made Easy

Eastern Washington University
Presented by Jacquelyn Early, Jim Moneymaker and Shawn King

Session Description

We will walk through the EWU Capital Project budget estimate sheet used by our project managers to create the initial estimate for capital requests. This estimate template allows for quick entry into AiM component groups when establishing a capital project planned budget.

Learning Objectives

  • Configure an excel document to mirror the setup of your component groups, providing an easy overview of the total planned budget prior to entry in AiM.
  • Comprehensive budgeting tool for all size and scope of projects from major capital to shops projects.
  • Provides consistency in presenting the budget to executive management and customers alike.
  • Sample budget estimate sheet will be provided to attendees.

Presenter Information

Working side by side, without local OIT support, Jim and Jacque have had the pleasure of working with Steve Deines on the EWU CPPM implementation and AiM reconfiguration team.

Steve thought our Budget Estimate sheet was worthy of sharing with the AssetWorks family, and it is our honor to present on his behalf
