Objective--- Provide an Enterprise wide solution for Labor budget data to be loaded in the BW. Entities--- The Johns Hopkins Health System and The JHU School of Medicine. Process---The upload format will be a csv file which will be dropped in XI by the business owners. The Labor Budget Load will be loaded as frequently as required and validation rules will be applied to each file. Every Labor Budget Load submission will replace the prior submission. Therefore, only one version will be contained in BW at a time. Data---The data provided may be as granular as budgeting at the position level.
