ERP Position Paper

Author: 
John Sheridan - FAS Technology & Procurement

As part of our ongoing work in shared services, Finance is today releasing a Position Paper on its indicative strategy for establishing a whole of Australian Government Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Panel. It outlines the objectives and methodology for a proposed Approach to the Market and begins to outline the type of solutions that are in scope. We are keen to get feedback from industry on the paper.

Finance is planning to hold an industry briefing for prospective tenderers on the background and objectives for the indicative strategy from 2:30pm to 4:30pm on Friday 7 July 2017 (to be confirmed). A webcast option may also be available. To register your interest in attending the industry briefing, please contact the Shared Service Program Team at scs@finance.gov.au.

**UPDATE**  A revised version of the 'Notice ERP Panel Position Paper' has been posted to correct a minor typo in the email address:

FIN-006-17 NOTICE ERP PANEL POSITION PAPER (Version 2) [PDF]

Seems like a pragmatic and realistic approach to achieving co-operation across agencies whilst still providing flexibility and choice with respect to specific vendors. Standards observance with respect to data integration across solutions will be paramount so the movement of records between platforms can be automated when individuals move from one agency to another and consequently could move to different ERP solutions.

I see a significant role for providers that can deliver connectors and brokers to facilitate data transfer between systems.
