Design of Participatory Budgets
In this module users will be assisted by a very comprehensive set of questions that will help them to define the PB process in detail: its main focus; the way the territory will be divided in order to promote the residents’ participation; the possibility to set geo-references onto such territorial division; the design of the participation tools; the definition of the technical and political coordination of the process; the planning of the participation cycle; the legal framework of the PB, among many others.
 
Management of the Participatory Budgets
In this module the users will have access to all the necessary aids to make the PB operational and to ensure its implementation, namely, a plan for the process of internal and external training; the design of a communication and dissemination plan; the management of public meetings, with the possibility of producing their minutes and reports, as well as the statistical assessment of participants, the treatment given to the submitted proposals and their technical analysis and degree of priority conferred, the administration of the investments  approved and included in the budget, the feasibility of their geo-reference, among many other aspects. 
 
Evaluation of Participatory Budgets
This module is conceived is a way that enables the monitoring and evaluation of the PB development, its results and impacts. All along the different domains of work, the users will find statistics that are automatically produced by the system (on participants, meetings, proposals, investments, budget, etc.), and also several instruments created to retrieve and process the information relating to the participatory practices. Another innovative feature of this appliance is to indicate a geo-reference for the investments and classify them by area and domain of activity. The system also allows comparative analyses to be made among processes, results and impacts of the different annual cycles of the PB.
