CAPPS System Overview

ERP

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) business process management software uses a system of integrated applications to manage an organization’s core processes such as accounting, payroll, human resources (HR), inventory and procurement.

Information is entered once and applies across other business processes, resulting in less effort and fewer errors.

With an ERP-based system, automated reporting is flexible and more accurate, allowing better access to data and a broader range of report detail for “big-picture” overviews.

History

The 80th Texas Legislature passed House Bill 3106 that charged the Comptroller’s office with establishing clear standards for implementing ERP in Texas.

The Comptroller’s office ProjectONE team has developed an ERP financials and HR/payroll solution that delivers the functionality required by HB 3106 for Texas state government.

CAPPS also aligns with CPA’s Agency Strategic Plan for the Period 2019–23 and supports A Plan for the Implementation of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) for the State of Texas developed by the legislatively mandated ERP Advisory Council.

PeopleSoft and CAPPS

The ProjectONE team created CAPPS using Oracle’s PeopleSoft 9.1 suite as a base. In 2014, CAPPS was upgraded to PeopleSoft 9.2 and the system continues to be upgraded and maintained to the latest images and patches as delivered by Oracle.
