Crown Law is seeking proposals for a new Finance Management Information System (FMIS) that has functionality for general accounting, budgeting and forecasting, and other related functionality for the management of a NZ government agency.
In selecting a new FMIS, Crown Law is looking for a solution which is simple, robust, and reliable. Crown Law seeks to achieve the following objectives in introducing new software;
• real time information for management on Crown Law, client, matter and counsel performance;
• a simple to use and robust general accounting system compliant with New Zealand legislation and generally accepted accounting principles;
• reduced overall operating costs;
• improved efficiency for our staff;
• ability to accommodate different work types and practices including mobility options; and
• improved resilience.
The purpose of this RFP is to seek proposals from organisations whose software meets the criteria outlined in section 2 of this RFP and the attached spreadsheet. Based on the proposals we receive we will conduct a fair and extensive evaluation to select a provider.
We are concurrently running a separate RFP to replace our current Legal Practice Management system (PMS). A PMS manages all of the functions relating to legal practice: time recording; billing; client management and matter management. A PMS generally also includes finance management functionality; however, we are not certain that a PMS will be able to meet all of our financial requirements, therefore we are running this separate RFP. This separate RFP seeks a solution to manage the financial, budgeting and reporting processes to be integrated with the legal practice modules of the successful respondent to the PMS RFP. You will therefore be asked to provide some information about your integration technologies, methodology and experience.
