A Plan for the Implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for the State of Texas
The ERP Advisory Council members would like to thank their respective agencies and institutions of higher education as well as the Comptroller’s office for the opportunity to contribute to this most important statewide initiative.
We would also like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) workgroups that provided us with high-quality and timely recommendations for topic areas relevant to our plan. Each workgroup was led by a seasoned state professional who volunteered time to perform this important role. The workgroups and their leads were as follows:
Accounts Payable (E-Travel Voucher)
Texas Department of State Health Services
Statewide Considerations (Unique Texas Business Identifier)
Kay Rhodes Texas
Tech University System
Global Data Standardization
Dr. Clair Goldsmith
University of Texas System
Asset Management and Inventory
Texas Department of Transportation
Vehicle Fleet Management
Don Lewis Texas
Department of Transportation
A large number of subject-matter experts from various state agencies and institutions participated in each of these workgroups. We are grateful for their willingness to share their time and knowledge.
Finally, we wish to acknowledge the work performed by the independent consulting firm of Salvaggio Teal & Associates (STA). Some sections of this document rely on data and findings presented in their September 17, 2008 report, Report on Business Case Analysis for a Statewide ERP System.
