ProjectONE Update

In a few months, DIR will be the first agency in Texas to fully implement the new Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel (CAPPS) Financials system. September 2011 may seem far away, but DIR has a few more hills to climb before crossing the finish line to begin using CAPPS.

The New Year marked the beginning of the Testing phase, with a kickoff event on January 13. During the meeting, DIR testers and project staff learned more about what to expect during the Testing phase. Testing officially began on January 24. Testers were selected based on their specific skill set and business expertise.

Over the next several months, DIR testers will work to validate that the financial system meets the business requirements approved by the ProjectONE Enterprise Work Group (EWG), Change Control Board (CCB), and Steering Committee members. Testers will be assigned a specific schedule and follow precise test scripts that have been developed for the various test phases. If you should have any questions about this project and how it might affect you or your division in the coming months, please contact Allan Martin at 463-5973.
