Applied Savings


Agency Efficiency: DIR

In the October 2012 Post-Implementation Review of Business Outcomes for Statewide Enterprise Resource Planning Project — Financials Report, DIR forecasted an annual savings of $118,375 due to implementing CAPPS, to be realized through improved workflow, business processes and reporting over an eight year period from fiscal 2012 – fiscal 2020.

With 178 full-time employees (FTEs), DIR can potentially realize an annual savings of $665 per FTE. Excluding higher education, there are over 148,000 FTEs working for the state of Texas. If every agency achieves similar efficiencies as forecasted by DIR, a potential annual savings of $98.4 million is achievable when all agencies are on CAPPS.
