Job Description

Analyze Existing Budgets

One of the major duties of a budget specialist is analyzing existing budgets on both departmental and organizational levels.

They may gather monthly or annual budgets and compare them to actual expenditures, income, and costs, noting any significant deviations or excessive spending.

Budget specialists tend to work across departments, reviewing financial and accounts payable information to make informed decisions about budgeting.

Develop Budgets and Forecasts

Another primary responsibility of the budget specialists is to actively develop budgets and cash flow forecasts.

They may have oversight of organizational budgets as well as departmental budgets and work to ensure that these budget activities align with cash flow expectations and long-term financial plans.

Budget specialists also develop forecasts to support long-term budget management and business growth.

Perform Cost-Benefit Analyses

Frequently, budget specialists conduct cost-benefit analyses for individual departments or the organization as a whole.

In this aspect of the role, a budget analyst examines current spending and cash flow, market and financial forecasts, and overall business goals to make recommendations and guide executive decision-making.

They may directly advise leaders on decisions like relocating, expanding operations to a new market, or hiring more personnel.

Manage Cash Flow

Budget specialists help manage an organization’s cash flow through strategic planning and assessment. A budget specialist may examine a corporation’s overall sales numbers or a nonprofit’s donation and sponsorship records, comparing them to expected expenditures and recurring operating costs to identify potential cash flow issues.

The budget specialist may also make recommendations to reduce expenditures or better manage and allocate incoming funds.

Provide Financial Advice

Budget specialists provide day-to-day financial guidance for organizations and departments. A budget specialist might meet directly with a department manager to provide advice on developing and maintaining a budget and give guidance on how that department’s budget fits into the organization’s financial plans.

A budget specialist also works with executives to provide information on projected financial performance and budget shortfalls.

Prepare Budget Reports

In addition to analyzing and guiding overall budget activity, a budget specialist also prepares periodic budget and financial reports. By assessing financial data and developing forecasts, the budget specialist reports on
financial performance and irregularities and supports financial reporting and compliance activities.

These reports also compare budgets and expenditures throughout any given period in order to identify and eliminate variances.
