Phase III Changes
The Financial Systems Modernization Project Team, Executive Sponsors and our vendor partners are considering a wide range of enhancements, third-party software options, and improvements to business processes. During Phase III discovery, details and options for the most popular requests for enhancement will be evaluated and prioritized for implementation.
Phase I of the Financial Systems Modernization project developed the proof-of-concept to replatform FAMIS. In 2016, a Finance Discovery Working Group was formed to work with a project team to initiate and develop the discovery process and provide member insight into the needs of a potential replacement financial system.
The second phase of the project, Phase II, was the replatforming of FAMIS and discovery of Reporting, Canopy, and other business enhancements to be carried out in Phase III. Replatforming included migrating FAMIS to a more modern programming language and moving from legacy mainframe technology to modern servers. These were major changes but most functionality remained the same for FAMIS users.
