Participating CAPPS Agencies
With CAPPS live at nine state agencies, Texas is on its way to providing a statewide ERP solution for financial and HR/payroll administration. A statewide CAPPS gives state decision makers a single source for reliable, real-time information that can be compared across participating agencies and provides transparency and better information for strategic sourcing and statewide procurement. These benefits will grow as agencies adopt and implement CAPPS.
CAPPS Financials has been implemented at these four Texas state agencies, laying the foundation for the state’s Financial ERP effort.
- Department of Information Resources (DIR)
- Central Texas Turnpike System (CTTS) — an enterprise fund of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT)
- Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA)
- Texas Department of Insurance (TDI)
CAPPS Financials was implemented at DIR on Sept. 1, 2011. The implementation allowed DIR to eliminate databases with redundant information and helped support the agency’s cost-reduction efforts. CAPPS improved system data management, enhanced data integrity and, for the first time, allowed reporting that interfaces between the agency’s databases.
CAPPS Financials was implemented at CTTS on Sept. 1, 2011. CTTS now has a system that is dependable, manageable, integrated and regularly maintained, preparing the way for full TxDOT implementation in the next phase of CAPPS deployment.
CAPPS Financials was implemented at CPA and TDI on July 2, 2012. To prepare for this implementation, ProjectONE’s CPA/TDI Implementation on CAPPS (CTIC) project team further refined CAPPS Financials, including expanding the security structure segregating agency data. This refinement resulted in the current robust financials platform ready for deployment across all state agencies.
The five Health and Human Services (HHS) agencies [Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC); Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS); Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services (DARS); Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS); Department of State Health Services (DSHS)] retired their legacy accessHR system and converted to CAPPS HR/Payroll on Nov. 8, 2012. CAPPS HR/Payroll at the HHS agencies serves as the baseline application that will allow deployment of this CAPPS component at all state agencies.
