City of Cypress seeking proposals for electronic budget book solution

The City of Cypress (City) is soliciting proposals to provide an automated production of the City’s annual budget book. The end-goal is to improve efficiency of the City’s current budgeting process and allow for ease of use for end-users. City staff currently uses a combination of Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word along with Microsoft related graphics to create the City’s budget book. The desired software solution must be user friendly for inputting and importing data, managing and retrieving information, reporting and storage.

The City has received the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) Distinguished Budget Presentation Award over the past several years. For budgets beginning after January 1, 2021, GFOA updated its eligibility requirement for this award program. The successful proposer will demonstrate how its software solution will adhere to these new GFOA guidelines. GFOA Budgeting Best Practices can be found here:
