Government Finance - A Proven Integrated Fund Accounting Solution


  • Full Fund Accounting - with a double-entry system based on your personalized Chart of Accounts.
  • Multiple Accounting Periods - Allows multiple periods to be open at one time (including at fiscal year end) to facilitate balancing and closing while still getting your current transactions completed. A 13th month is available for year end adjustments.
  • Ledgers updated immediately - documents are posted when created providing accurate reports for any time period.
  • Balanced Accounting Entries - One-sided entries cannot be posted. The system requires that there is an appropriate offset to each accounting entry. Except for Journal Vouchers all transactions will supply correct offset accounting.
  • Full Integration - All other modules that generate accounting entries are integrated with bmsGovernment Finance. There are never manual Journal entries needed for transactions created in one of our applications.
  • Document Editing and Cancellation - A one-step process. No manual journal vouchers required. The accounting entries are automatically reversed. Editing and reposting is simple.
  • Vendor and Other On Line Queries - Quick look-ups for vendor claim history, revenue and expenditure budgets through query screens.
  • Purchase Orders - Full encumbrance accounting, E-mail or directly fax PO to vendor. Automatically generates appropriate accounting if PO crosses fiscal year.
  • Recurring Documents - Any transaction can be set as recurring on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis.
  • Interest Allocation - distribution can be preset. All you have to do is enter the total interest amount and post. The system will allocate the interest to the appropriate line items.
  • Project Accounting - manage expenditures, revenues, and balance sheets (across funds if necessary) by using a project account code. Manage a grant across fiscal years by setting begin and end date and grant amount.
  • Direct Document Scanning - For Example: selecting the scan button on the claim entry form automatically scans and attaches invoice images to the claim record for instant viewing. Scanning is available for many kinds of system records - Journal Vouchers, Cash receipts, Claims, Vendor, etc.
