Executive Letter

Members of the 85th Legislature
Members of the Legislative Budget Board

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We are pleased to present you with our latest report on ProjectONE, the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) project for Texas state government, in accordance with Section 2101.040 of the Texas Government Code. You can view an electronic version of this report and additional information at www.txprojectone.org.

Our statewide ERP solution, the Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System (CAPPS), offers Texas government a modern, integrated statewide system to replace a variety of aging legacy systems. It provides a single, secure set of books for all state agencies as well as accurate, real-time reporting capabilities.

Since fiscal 2012, ProjectONE has deployed CAPPS to a number of state agencies, and this progress continues. At present, we anticipate that CAPPS will be used for 92 percent of all state spending and 68 percent of all full-time state employees by the beginning of fiscal 2020.

Government and taxpayers alike will benefit from the transparency, efficiency and security CAPPS provides. These benefits will grow as our family of agencies increases.

On behalf of the ProjectONE team, thank you for your efforts to support this vital initiative. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have questions, comments or concerns.
