Financial and Cost Management
Financial managers face complex business issues with imperfect information regarding financial and cost implications.
Effective financial and cost management integrates resource allocations, process integration, monitoring and controls, and effective reporting. CALIBRE builds practical, timely, best-value solutions to solve customer financial and cost management challenges.
Budget Formulation and Execution Support
CALIBRE helps customers develop and formulate defendable programs and budgets to achieve organizational goals and mission requirements. We link processes and systems to the customer's strategic plans and develop a continuous feedback loop so performance and cost information can inform decisions regarding planning, budgeting, and execution.
Cost Benefit Analysis and Training
CALIBRE’s cost management, cost benefit analyses, and training is based on established norms, methods, processes, and practices. The strength of this approach provides managers and employee teams with insight based on understanding not only current spending, but prior costs, and then applies the same data to enable better decision making. CALIBRE’s professional staff performs training both in the United States and overseas in support of customer requirements.
CALIBRE provides technical expertise, special studies, modeling, and execution support related to resource management planning, cost analysis, and validation of forecasted requirements. Our solutions help organization leaders understand the full cost of their operations and the associated cost implications, allowing for better informed decisions as well as optimal use of limited resources, both in the near and long-term. We also provide training in cost management and analysis to help organizations move towards an institutional cost management culture that considers cost, performance, and risk in decision making and resource allocation.
Facility Capital Repair and Replacement Budgeting
CALIBRE offers services for several facility capital repair and replacement budget level estimating methodologies to help our customers determine their requirements and the effects of their budgets on the condition of their infrastructure. Using proven statistical inference techniques, we deliver life-cycle assessments of the impact of suggested repair and renewals. CALIBRE was selected to partner with the U.S. Army’s Construction Engineering Research Laboratory in the development and deployment of Engineered Management System (EMS) building condition assessment technology.
Program Assessment and Budget Integration
CALIBRE offers our customers program assessment services that determine program performance and focus on improving results. We use a systematic approach to determine the purpose of the program, its links to the organizational strategy, its program management, and its performance measures to measure results. The results of the assessments are integrated into budget reviews, actions, and decisions. We also help develop supporting systems that analyze, report, and display assessment information.
Resource and Cost Model Development and Analysis
CALIBRE develops and uses models to support customers who need to assess program resources and costs. Our modeling capabilities range from single systems to fleets, individuals to entire workforces, and small units or organizations to larger organizations or force structures. Knowledge of physical and performance parameters, operating concepts, organizational designs, usage parameters, and costs allows us to project total resource and cost impacts that are essential modeling capabilities for these transformational times.
