Project Timeline

The specific goals of the State Transforming Agencies Resources (STAR) project are to deploy a secure and reliable ERP system that: 
  • Provides operational efficiencies through standardized work processes and the ability to utilize analytics
  • Identifies and resolves work processes, materials and systems for alternatives to using personally identifying information (example:  social security number for travel expenses)
  • Reduces or eliminates paper
  • Empowers our workforce by streamlining approval processes and pushes decision making to the appropriate level
  • Improves transparency
  • Reduces long-term business costs

There will be three phases to the STAR Project:

  1. Plan and Procure:  the planning and procurement process was successfully completed using State staff resources.  A solicitation for a Systems Integrator was issued in June 2013, with a project start date in the fall of 2013.  
  2. Procurement and Finance Systems:  Successfully went live in October 2015.  Currently in a six month vendor-led post-implementation support effort.  
  3. Human Resources and Payroll Finance Systems:  Successfully went live in January 2016. Currently in a six-month vendor-led post-implementation support effort.
