The Illinois Department of Innovation and Technology (DoIT) announced this week that it finalized the transition of state agencies to its enterprise resource planning (ERP) finance platform.

The move of the last seven agencies onto the platform marks a significant milestone for the project, which has been several years in the making.

Currently, 3,200 users across 65 agencies use the ERP system, with over $65 billion of vouchers processed since the beginning of the program, according to the IT agency announcement.

In the Sept. 8 press release, DoIT noted that the Department of Human Services, Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts, Illinois Attorney General, Illinois Community College Board, State Board of Elections, State Treasurer’s Office and the State Universities Civil Service System had moved over to the system.

“There are numerous benefits for Illinois achieved through the ERP program, such as improving the efficiency of administrative services, consistently delivering financial statements in a timely manner and providing access to complete and accurate information for better insight and decision-making,” CIO Jennifer Ricker said in the release.

Moving forward, the ERP program will be used to enhance financial reporting and data analytics and identify and implement business process efficiencies.

“I am proud of the hard work of our ERP team to maintain progress with this project during the pandemic, and this achievement would not have been realized without the support of Gov. Pritzker and the collaboration of the agencies,” Ricker said.
