The University is embarking on a project to upgrade and migrate the current Oracle EBS Finance System to the latest Oracle Cloud ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) version, replacing smaller bespoke systems with standard Oracle functionality.
This Finance system upgrade is part of a programme which includes replacement of existing HR systems with Oracle Cloud HCM (Human Capital Management) to provide a modern, holistic and integrated Cloud-based solution to more efficiently support both Finance and HR functions.
During 2019, as part of this Finance and HR programme, UoW engaged a Systems Implementation (SI) Partner to work with the University to develop a Global Design for the Finance and HR Solutions. In December 2019 work commenced to implement the Budgeting and Forecasting solution Oracle EPM (Enterprise Performance Management) which was completed in 2 phases to align with UoW’s 2021 budget process.
This upgrade programme also provides the opportunity to examine and improve internal business processes, contributing to the University Strategy 2017-2021, which includes goals of “Improved operational efficiency and facilitates” and “An organisational culture focused on high performance”.
The purpose of this Request for Tender (RFT) is to invite external companies to submit tenders to the University of Waikato with information on their skills, services and experience in providing Oracle Cloud Implementation Services in the areas of Finance and Human resources.
The information is requested so that University of Waikato can:
Identify organisations interested in and capable of delivering these services; and
Identify different methods of providing such services and developing the preferred solution.
