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 107 state agencies, and despite the challenges of COVID-19, this progress continues. Successful deployments require direct interaction between agencies and the ProjectONE team, and we were able to seamlessly transition to online collaboration tools to continue successful one-on-one deployment sessions.

Our deployment plan for the fiscal 2022-23 biennium projects that CAPPS will be used for 96 percent of all state agency spending and 75 percent of all full-time state agency employees by the beginning of fiscal 2024. Contingent on legislative appropriations, the anticipated completion of CAPPS deployments is July 2026.

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

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