      The article proposes a concept of reference models for automated budgeting systems designed to highlight the cross-subject area between information technologies and budgeting theory. The paper identifies methods of automation of budgeting systems, their reference elements and interaction with the organization budgeting system. In particular, the extension of functionality of spreadsheets, the development of functionality of ERP-systems, customized development of automated budgeting systems, task-oriented budgeting systems and systems available within the “software as a services” (SaaS) model are considered as the main approaches to budgeting automation.
      Reference models are taken to mean models of automated budgeting systems which describe the information system configuration for certain sectors or types of production, i.e. a meta description based on which a specific system can be configured and implemented.
      For description of a reference model, such documents as a directory of budget items grouped within the analytical dimensions, album of forms (including data entry forms and report forms), as well as passport of algorithms, which describes methods of calculation of budget accounts are proposed to be used. This documentation covers three main areas within which the information systems are designed, namely, design of data objects, design of screen forms and reports, and record of the technology being used.
      Reference models of the budgeting systems enable consulting companies to formalize and systematize the project experience to achieve a competitive position through reduction of terms and enhancement of the system integration.
