CAPPS System Overview


Enterprise Resource Planning or ERP involves business process management software that allows an organization to use a system of integrated applications to manage the organizations core processes such as accounting, payroll, human resources (HR), inventory and procurement.

Information is entered once and carries over to the other business processes, resulting in less room for error and greatly reduced manual effort.

With an ERP-based system, reporting is flexible, more accurate and highly automated. This allows for a broader range of report detail and better access to data for “big-picture” overviews.


The 80th Texas Legislature passed House Bill 3106 that charged the Comptroller’s office (CPA) with establishing clear standards for implementing ERP in Texas.

With the Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System or CAPPS, CPA’s ProjectONE team has developed an ERP financials and HR/payroll solution for Texas state government that delivers the functionality required by HB 3106.

CAPPS implementation also aligns with CPA’s Agency Strategic Plan for the Period 2015–19 and supports the December 2008 A Plan for the Implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for the State of Texas developed by the legislatively mandated ERP Advisory Council.

PeopleSoft and CAPPS

The ProjectONE team created CAPPS using Oracle’s PeopleSoft 9.1 suite as a base. CAPPS was upgraded to PeopleSoft 9.2 in 2014.
