CAPPS - Report to the 86th Legislature

Executive Summary

CAPPS Program Oversight

Bringing a statewide ERP solution to Texas for financials and HR/payroll is no small task. By implementing the CAPPS program in phases, CPA and participating agencies are learning from previous deployments while improving upon those to come.

To ensure the CAPPS program is handled properly, CAPPS project phases are reviewed regularly by the state’s Quality Assurance Team (QAT) that includes the State Auditor’s Office (SAO), Legislative Budget Board (LBB), CPA and DIR. Oversight is also provided through a contract for independent analysis of the ERP program.

During 2017, the SAO performed an audit on CPA’s controls over CAPPS. In 2018, CPA contracted with KPMG to perform a Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) readiness assessment. CPA intends to contract for annual CAPPS SSAE 18 SOC 1, Type 2 reports that assess key control objectives and control activities for each objective.
