IRIS Project

Project History

Background

The Department of Administration is replacing its aging accounting (AKSAS) and payroll (AKPAY) systems which support approximately 16,500 employees in all three branches of government and have been operational since 1985 and 1990, respectively.

  • ALDER - The department created a data warehouse reporting system that contains historical and current information from these legacy systems. Having a separate repository will simplify and reduce the amount of data conversion required while providing a common business intelligence reporting platform that bridges the gap between the legacy and the replacement systems.

Business Case

A business case for administrative system replacement was initially completed in 2003, and updated in 2007.

Procurement

Procurement for an ERP solution kicked off in January 2010.
