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


Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) consolidates aspects of a business, including the business of government, within a commonly aligned set of systems: accounting, human resources, payroll, inventory and more. With an ERP-based platform, information is entered once and carries over to all other functions. This increases efficiency while reducing errors, manual efforts and costs.

The state of Texas is successfully deploying an ERP solution using a combination of the CAPPS Central and CAPPS Hub implementation models. Flexibility of the CAPPS program makes it possible for any Texas state agency to deploy CAPPS. This choice leverages economies of scale that realistically translate into long-term benefits for Texas.

State funds allocated to the ongoing CAPPS statewide deployment effort will continue to be used to achieve a centralized, secure source for the state’s financials and HR/payroll information.
