Report to the 85th Legislature: CAPPS — ERP in Texas

System Improvements

The primary goal of the ProjectONE team is to deploy CAPPS to all state agencies. The secondary goal is to continuously improve the system in use today. Improvements include:

  • Minor system changes.
  • Major module updates.
  • Implementation of new functionality.

The following key improvements were made this past biennium:

CAPPS Financials — Contract Management (SB 20)

The 84th Legislature passed Senate Bill 20 that affects the way state agencies handle the contracting process and documentation. As the statewide financials system, CAPPS was updated to capture additional contract-related information, and standardized field definitions and values.

CAPPS HR/Payroll — Recruit & Learn

During fiscal 2016 and 2017, the ProjectONE team added two new modules to the offered modules suite — CAPPS Recruit and CAPPS Learn.

The inclusion of CAPPS Recruit in July 2016 added the functionality to post job requisitions, and review and hire candidates into the CAPPS Core HR module. Additionally, the Recruit module integrates with WorkInTexas.org, the Texas Workforce Commission’s jobs website. This new integration allows agencies to see candidates applying through both WorkInTexas and CAPPS Recruit. The CAPPS Learn module adds a Learning Management System (LMS) to the CAPPS suite. Through CAPPS Learn, agencies can manage course content and report on the status of course completion.
