budgeted cost - how to use?

We can see the attribute "budgeted cost" on the project object, and add this to the project/edit view - which allows a total budgeted cost to be entered/modified against a project.However, once a Cost Plan is created based on assignments, the budgeted cost field becomes read-only and cannot be entered or modified.  We need to be able to enter an approved budget $ against a project so that we can track actual $ against this budget, but also want to use cost Plans to see actual/forecast spend by month based on assignments.   The cost plan should be more a 'projected spend' based on assignments - which differs completely from what the approved budget $ is.  We cannot see any way to use both in parallel.  Any ideas on how this can be achieved would be greatly appreciated.Thanks
