CQUniversity Budget Planning Software

In 2011, the University converted to IBM Cognos TM1 as its budgeting and forecasting preparation tool for financial information.  This software allows users to prepare their financial management budgets and quarterly forecasts at a project level within their Responsibility Centre in an efficient and timely manner.

Any new staff member who is to be involved in the budget/forecasting preparation process (specifically data entry) will need to request access by sending an email through to the Budget & Performance Reporting email address:  Staff must have permission from the appropriate Responsibility Centre Manager to access their budget/forecast information. Due to licence availability restrictions, Financial Services hold the final approval rights regarding access levels.

Installation of the software on individual PC's and training in the use of the Budget Planning Software is provided by Budget & Performance Reporting (B&PR) in Financial Services.  Documents to assist users can be accessed via the links below.
