Finance to trial a common whole-of-government ERP platform

The federal Department of Finance has announced that it is working with the Shared Services Provider Hubs to co-design a new GovERP initiative.

The initiative is part of the Australian Government’s Shared Services Program, which aims to “consolidate, standardise and automate the delivery of core transactional corporate services across non-corporate Commonwealth entities”, according to an approach-to-market announcement on the AusTender website.

“The GovERP initiative comprises the design, development and trial of a common whole-of-government platform, which will deliver a range of standardised corporate and financial services,” the announcement said.

“The first tranche of the initiative will prototype a foundation enterprise resource management (ERP) platform for trialling across the Provider Hubs that already operate an SAP-based ERP.

“As such it will use SAP/4 HANA as the core technology solution, along with a range of complementary cloud-based products sourced from the open market, to test the delivery of common HR and Financial Services via a Provider Hub model.

“The GovERP initiative will soon be entering a new project delivery phase and this will involve multiple approaches to market (ATM) to procure appropriate cloud-based complimentary products and services to integrate with a Core SAP/4 HANA platform.”

The Department will hold an industry briefing in Canberra on 17 February.
