Executive Summary

The CAPPS Program Model

The CAPPS program model offers agencies two alternatives for onboarding to CAPPS – CAPPS Central and CAPPS Hub.

CAPPS Central

  • Main systems platform of the CAPPS program.
  • Centrally managed and maintained by CPA.
  • PeopleSoft-based CAPPS Financials and HR/Payroll baseline applications and related components.
  • CPA bears costs of transition, deployment, and ongoing maintenance and support.
  • Deploying agencies cover internal costs such as staff, training and travel.

CAPPS Hub

  • For large, complex agencies or agencies with established PeopleSoft-based systems.
  • Not centrally managed by CPA.
  • Hub agencies receive their own copy and regular updates of the CAPPS Financials and HR/Payroll baseline applications to implement, maintain and support on their own infrastructure.
  • CAPPS Hub agencies bear costs of transition, deployment and ongoing maintenance and support and all other internal costs.
  • TxDOT, HHS, Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) and Texas Education Agency (TEA) are CAPPS Hub agencies deployed on CAPPS Financials, CAPPS HR/Payroll or both.
