1 Community Source Procurement System Jennifer Foutty Director of Purchasing Operations, Indiana University Barry Walsh Senior Director, eBusiness Services, Indiana University JF

2 Objective  To share with you some details of what, for us, was a unique implementation of a new system JF

3 Some Background  Two projects converging: Development of a new Procurement system at Indiana University  Replacing a mainframe system  That system in production since 1988  We called this new system “EPIC” Electronic Procurement & Invoicing Center The Kuali Financial Systems Project JF

4 Kuali Financial System  Functional/Technical leads met Dec 2004 Scope and the data that was to be contained in the system (based primarily on existing IU FIS) Person-years estimated to be somewhere around 60  Time allotted for project was 2.5 years  March 18, 2005…$2,500,000 from Andrew W. Mellon Foundation  Development began in June, 2005

5 KFS Founding Partners  Started with Six Institutional Founding Partners  NACUBO and The rSmart Group are Founding Partners On 7/8/06, a new Investing Partner joined

6 Kuali Financial System  Scope Over 700 distinct tables Over 100 distinct routable business transactions…’eDocs’ Over 400 distinct maintenance transactions Hundreds of inquiries, lookups, and mandatory reports to support real-time and analytical decision making

7 First Module of Kuali Financial Systems BW Actually scheduled now for 10/13

8 Convergence  Kuali Functional Council met in April 2005  KFC reviewed all functionality in EPIC  KFC voted to include EPIC in the Kuali Financial System  Some enhancements were identified JF

9 The EPIC Story  Two key themes: Exceptional response from users to EPIC First module of Kuali Financial System implemented JF

10 Exceptional Response  Minimal Costs  Very few bugs  We felt the love JF

11 Minimal Costs  Approximately 2 year implementation  Approximately 6 developers  All procurement staff spent hours Design Testing Training & Implementation  No external funding required JF

12 Very few bugs  We piloted in June 2005 Catalog shopping only Brought departments on a few at a time Defined needed workflow and set up that workflow in the system  Fully live in November 2005 No parallel activity  Only major bug was in our Fax software integration (which users didn’t see) JF

13 Felt the Love  Training  Mentoring  Usability JF

14 Training  Step-by-step documentation  Town Hall meetings  Hands on training JF

15 Mentoring  An individual Purchasing staff member met one-on-one with each of 102 departments on the Bloomington campus  What this accomplished Probably the best “training” possible, because it was so individualized We learned so much more about our users Our users really felt the love JF

16 Usability at IU  Usability eXperience Group 5 years Early Connection with Development Teams Accessibility issues Cross-Application Learning  Purchasing/AP; HR;  Kuali BW

17 Quick Demo JF

18 First Module of Kuali Financial Systems  What we learned -- Best practices  Vendor data structures  Reporting of diversity spend  Use of Commodity Codes Having partners we can ask “how do you do this?” How to collaborate and compromise  We pooled resources rather than competing for them JF

19 Q&A Jennifer – Barry –
