project vision
Project Vision

Implement a Statewide Financial Management System that provides for:

  • An integrated accounting system with a more useful Chart of Accounts that enhances the ability to report statewide expenditures by fund, service area, program, grant, vendor, item, and contract through implementation of statewide account coding standards.
  • An integrated procurement system that automates purchasing requests and sourcing, with a single vendor and item master
project vision11
Project Vision
  • Better information to enable agencies to more effectively manage their programs and measure performance
  • Increased accountability and transparency to the public in the use of public funds.
  • Elimination of agency-level systems that perform basic administrative, financial, and procurement functions that can and should be performed by a centralized system.
project vision12
Project Vision
  • Simplification and integration of the State's application architecture by reducing the number of separate information systems, the custom interfaces that connect them, and out-of-date technology
  • A business foundation upon which to automate additional business functions which may develop in the future on an integrated platform.
  • Use of Internet technology to lower costs of maintenance and increase accessibility
  • Limiting customization and/or modifications of the FMS software to minimize implementation costs, to support standardization of business practices, and to preserve the ability to upgrade to new versions as they are released.
