Major Supercity ICT contracts signed

Full roll-out of the Auckland Supercity ERP system will be completed in August 2011 at a cost of $62.3 million, according to Auckland Transition Agency documents.

Implementation of the SAP system before the operational go-live date of November 1 is budgeted at $14.3 million.

The ATA background paper on major ICT projects states existing ICT infrastructure, including hardware and software, will be utilised where possible. But the overall objective is to "ensure a smooth transfer of the existing eight councils’ ICT systems and to plan the migration of the numerous duplicated business systems to a single ICT infrastructure platform".

After an initial evaluation, it was decided that a consolidated ERP system across the existing councils was necessary, says the paper. An ATA working group, consisting of senior council staff and ATA stream leaders, identified SAP as the most appropriate solution and this was supported by the regional CIOs. Auckland Regional Council, Waitakere City Council and Auckland City Council already use SAP for budgeting and planning, finance, procure to pay, HR and CRM.

A limited tender process was then run to select the implementation partner to deliver the ERP solution, according to the documents. The responses were evaluated by “key council stakeholders” who looked at criteria including financials, experience, knowledge of systems, knowledge of local government practices and resource capability. A consortium consisting of SAP, Deloitte, Hewlett Packard and Soltius won the tender.
