ERP in Texas

ProjectONE is charged with implementing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for the state of Texas. The result is a single source of state financial and human resources/payroll information that maximizes state agencies’ ability to:

  • Manage operations efficiently
  • Minimize conflicting data
  • Provide decision-makers with in-depth, accurate and timely financial/human resources (HR)/payroll information

The Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System (CAPPS) is the ERP solution for Texas, designed and built by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts’ (Comptroller’s office) ProjectONE team. CAPPS is currently in production at 106 state agencies.

Benefits of implementing CAPPS statewide include:

  • A single, web-based source of financial and HR/payroll information for all state agencies
    • Statewide vs. siloed strategy
    • Continuous improvement of state government operations
  • Real-time, reliable information on the state’s revenue and spending
    • Systems integration between HR/payroll and financials
    • State savings through economies of scale
  • Simpler, more transparent reporting on the state’s business
    • Improved transparency, efficiency and productivity
    • Greater state accountability
    • Agency-inclusive CAPPS Governance
  • An up-to-date system that allows agencies to retire outdated processes and systems.
    • Improved security
    • Legacy system modernization
