Abstract : This Functional Description for 'Automation of the Army Budget Activities for Civilian Personnel' is written to provide: 1) The civilian portion of the Army budget system requirements which must be satisfied to serve as a basis for mutual understanding between the user and the developer; 2) Information on performance requirements and data sources for development of Operating Program (OP)-32 budget exhibit formats for hard copy and CRT displays which will provide civilian personnel budget data broken out by categories; and 3) A basis for development of automated procedures to display, access, and update civilian personnel budget data through remote entry devices and computer interfaces. The OP-32 Budget Exhibit (Summary of Price and Program Changes) provides detailed information on price and program changes in the Operation and Maintenance, Army (OMA) and other Army appropriations. It is used by the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD), and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) analysts to track program and price growth in a number of areas within appropriations. The OP-32 exhibit is required by the DOD Budget Guidance Manual 7110-1-M. The system described herein concerns itself with the civilian personnel costs of the OP-32 exhibit.
