GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. - Mar. 28, 2013 - Ciber has commenced a three-and-a-
half-year engagement that will bring the City of Fort Worth, Texas, a
comprehensive implementation of Oracle's PeopleSoft applications for finance-
related activities. The city is installing Oracle's PeopleSoft Financials and
Oracle's PeopleSoft Supply Chain Management software, as well as Oracle Hyperion
Public Sector and Budgeting. The new software replaces aging systems with
limited functionality, and the upgrades will give city managers dramatic
improvements in finance-related systems.
This implementation follows the city's installation of Oracle's PeopleSoft HR
Analytics and Oracle's PeopleSoft Global Payroll software. Ultimately, the
upgrades will give city workers a consolidated platform for human resources and
financial applications, which will provide timely access to business-critical
for better decision making. The software also leverages best
practices and will help city managers ensure proper separation of duties and
On the reporting end, the software will support development of the Comprehensive
Annual Financial Report (CAFR) submitted each year to the Government Finance
Officers Association (GFOA). These thorough reports can earn cities GFOA's Award
for Excellence in Financial Reporting, and this is the public finance
profession's highest level of acknowledgement for technical proficiency.
To mitigate risks, Fort Worth plans to manage its implementation in three
distinct phases that begins with implementation of core functionality modules,
such as accounts payable, accounts receivable and general ledger, then move on
to implementation of budget-preparation modules and, finally, software for
managing capital projects.
