Members of the Legislative Budget Board

Ladies and Gentlemen:

We are pleased to present you with our latest report on 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 on the Enterprise Resource Planning page at https://fmx.cpa.texas.gov/fmx/erp.

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 facilitates the creation of a single, secure set of books for all state agencies as well as accurate, real-time reporting capabilities.

Since fiscal 2012, the Comptroller’s office has deployed CAPPS to 118 state agencies; this progress continues. With our deployment plan for fiscal 2024-25 projects, as of Sept. 1, 2025, CAPPS will be used by 121 agencies for 100 percent of all state agency spending and by 75 percent of all full-time employees of state agencies, which excludes institutions of higher education and some legislative agencies. Contingent on legislative appropriations, the anticipated completion date of CAPPS deployments is fiscal 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 CAPPS 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.
