Budget Request 2019-2020
Detailed Decision Package


Finance
New Finance System Specification Study
Consultant to assist with scoping and assessing options for a new financial system
Background
The City’s financial system was implemented in 2001 and includes the following modules: General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Payroll, Employee Self Service, Utility Billing, Building Permits, Cash Receipting, and Project Management.
Current situation
The City is current with system upgrades but the system is showing its age with batch processing, limited reporting, slow performance, and lack of integration of modules. As other cities are migrating the next generation of ERP systems such as Work Day, staff feels the time is right to look at other options.
Proposed solution
Staff is requesting budget to hire a consultant to assist in determining specification the City will require in a new ERP system and to assess which systems meet the needs of our growing City.
