Accenture to design and deploy Kansas state financial system

by Editor 10/29/2008 2:57:00 PM
The state of Kansas has awarded Accenture a three-year, $26.2 million fixed-price contract to design and implement a new statewide financial system. Accenture was selected following a competitive procurement for a qualified systems integration consultant to team with the state on this initiative.

Under the contract, Accenture is tasked with implementing Oracle’s PeopleSoft version 9.0 in areas including financials, procurement, projects, grants, and data warehousing. The new system will replace an 18-year-old financial system and be integrated with PeopleSoft HCM, which was implemented for Kansas by Accenture in the 1990s.

“The new system is designed to deliver better financial information for state decision-makers, improve efficiency through re-designed business processes and consolidation of duplicative systems, and provide a more transparent approach to state financial data,” said David Moskovitz, managing director of Accenture’s U.S. state and local practice. “Accenture has helped many states modernize their technology and implement new financial management systems, and we are excited to take on this much-needed initiative with Kansas.”

Accenture will lead a team that includes Oracle Consulting and CedarCrestone.
