The Excel template can be downloaded from within N-PEARS in the Budget Import section within the Planned Staffing and Budget module. You can also download the template here: annual_plan_budget_template.
When should an agency use the budget import?
The budget import section is optional. Agencies may input budget data directly into N-PEARS instead of using the budget import.
The budget import will be most helpful for the following cases:
An agency has a large number of staff positions to add to N-PEARS
An agency has a large number of projects in N-PEARS
An agency has a large number of trips to add to N-PEARS
