Timeline (Updated Q3 2020)

Initial timelines are based around the Commonwealth Fiscal Year which runs from July 1 – June 30.


During FY2020, the Program finished Project Management Office set-up and pre-procurement activities culminating with completing the draft Request for Response for Software procurement. ​


Over the next 3-4 years, starting in FY2021, the Program plans to complete procurement for both Software and an Implementation Partner, Fit-Gap, Design and Implementation of the replacements for HR/CMS and MMARS.


Program phases are yet to be determined and will be decided based on information gathered during the Procurement processes and with input from the Executive Sponsors, Executive Steering Committee and the Program Management Office.  Additional enhanced functions not currently supported on an enterprise basis will be implemented within budget and time constraints or held for future implementations.
