The fifth largest school district in the state of Colorado, the Aurora Public School District is comprised of 55 schools, with 40,000 students representing over 130 countries, and speaking 160+ languages.
The District was developing and managing their annual budgets through multiple documents and worksheets. With an annual budget of $371M and over 4,000 faculty and staff positions, and numerous funds, divisions, and departments, they needed an intuitive solution that would streamline their budgeting process, forecasting and reporting and allow the District to track their performance against their strategic goals and initiatives.
They released an RFP to contract and purchase a budgeting solution that would among other things provide automated workflow, had the ability to accurately forecast for the complexities of personnel budgeting, and integrated with the Oracle ERP R12 financial system. Reporting capabilities and budget book publishing were also key factors in why Aurora Public School has decided to purchase our Questica Budget Suite (Operating, Salaries, Capital and Performance modules) and Questica Budget Book powered by Caseware to transform their budgeting process.
