Bidding Begins: Tuesday, January 11, 2022
Bidding Ends: Tuesday, March 01, 2022
The District desires to replace its core computer information and accounting systems with a new suite of integrated systems. The District’s current financial software is more than eleven years old and is in need of updating to better utilize the technological advancements made within the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software segment. The overall goal is to implement a new system that will improve service to the District’s residents, businesses, customers and increase employee productivity. Currently, the District has several separate systems/modules/software that it depends on for day-to-day operations. Many of these systems are not integrated with one another. The goal would be to consolidate as many of the legacy systems (as possible) into one central system. The consolidation offers many benefits, examples include information consolidation, workflow improvements, streamlined business processes, reduction in custom systems, and more inclusive reporting/information for management. Moreover, it must be secure, and reliable. The District anticipates enhancing its process efficiencies by implementing a system that takes advantage of the most current system technology and network services. The new system must maintain its current capabilities while easily linking to third-party applications for providing additional functionality not inherent in the base software.
