Report to the 85th Legislature: CAPPS — ERP in Texas
The Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System (CAPPS) is the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solution for Texas. CAPPS was designed and built by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA) ProjectONE (Our New Enterprise) team with the input and participation of a diverse range of state agencies. ERP consolidates aspects of a business — including the business of government — within a commonly aligned set of systems: accounting, human resources (HR), payroll, procurement, inventory and more.
With 53 agencies that have deployed either CAPPS Financials, CAPPS HR/Payroll or both through early fiscal 2017 — Texas is well on the way to a modern and secure statewide solution that addresses taxpayer transparency and the state’s accounting and HR/payroll needs.
The CAPPS program offers state agencies a flexible deployment model that allows any agency to come on board with CAPPS regardless of complexity or size. A statewide CAPPS returns exceptional value to state agencies, the Legislature, oversight agencies and the general public. It provides benefits that save time, improve transparency and customer service, enhance security, and allow for economies of scale that return increased efficiency and reduced cost to the state.
