Budget Builder

Budget Builder is used to calculate, research, and forecast civilian personnel costs across the Department of Defense (DoD). This powerful application brings standardization, accuracy, and efficiency to DoD organizations by utilizing built-in pay and benefit rates and automating common tasks. Budget Builder is currently used by:

  • Office of the Secretary of Defense
  • Navy
  • Air Force
  • Marine Corps
  • Air and Army National Guard
  • Other DoD components

Budget Builder provides a unique and powerful costing and forecasting capability. Depending on the type of forecast performed, Budget Builder combines the payroll or personnel database with Office of Personnel Management (OPM) published built in pay and benefit rate files to determine the future costs of current employees to the government. These forecasts can be sorted and filtered in hundreds of ways to provide custom reporting solutions. Notably, these forecasts can be traced back to the cost components of each individual employee, providing a clear audit trail.

Ironclad is proud to provide a dedicated technical and functional support team to the Budget Builder user community. The Budget Builder help desk ticket system is accessible through the Budget Builder website 24 hours a day. In addition, we provide an on-site training course with a robust, hands-on curriculum.
