Enquiry from Which-50

Can you explain the division of responsibility between the business execs (eg finance, head of council etc) and the IT execs when it came to making a choice about which software to use?

Please attribute the following statement to City of South Perth Acting Chief Executive Officer Vicki Lummer:

In September 2017, the City of South Perth’s Council endorsed a change in Information Systems Strategy from best of breed to an integrated Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP).

The decision included the requirement to undertake due diligence (Business Plan, Change Management Plan and draft contract) and present the information to Council for a decision.

In March 2018, the Council endorsed the Information Systems Strategy and implementation of TechnologyOne’s OneCouncil SaaS solution.
