Details about your Financial Management and Corporate Records Information Systems

Marcus (Account suspended) made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Veterans' Affairs

The request was successful.

From: Marcus (Account suspended)

Delivered

Dear Department of Veterans' Affairs,

I understand from APSC your agency is classified as a Large Agency https://stateoftheservice.apsc.gov.au/le...

I request information on the following:

* Financial Management Information System (FMIS) - this would be the system that your agency uses to record financial transaction, in your General Ledger accounts, that is the basis of your Financial Statements reported in your Annual Report. An example of a FMIS would be Finance One.

Can you please advise the name of your current FMIS and, if possible, when the current system was adopted/implemented.

* Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) - this would be the system your agency uses to create, manage, use, and/or store all mandatory to archive corporate documents and records. An example of an EDRMs is HPE Content Manager.

Can you please advise the name of your current FMIS and, if possible, when the current system was adopted/implemented.

FOR BOTH: If your agency uses multiple systems, can you please just report for FMIS and EDRMS the system that is predominantly used in your agency. If you agency has rebadged an off the shelf product (uses an internal name for it), can you also provide the name it is called in the agency.

Early reply appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Marcus

Dear Department of Veterans' Affairs,

Apologies, that second part should have read:

* Electronic Document and Records Management System (EDRMS) - this would be the system your agency uses to create, manage, use, and/or store all mandatory to archive corporate documents and records. An example of an EDRMS is HPE Content Manager.

Can you please advise the name of your current *EDRMS* and, if possible, when the current system was adopted/implemented.

Yours faithfully,

Marcus

Dear Madam,

Given the simple nature of the information request (it wasn’t a request for documents), and it’s tiny scope, this was not an FOI request (there was no mention of FOI) but an administrative request.

Due to an essay deadline, and taking into account the limited information sought, it would be appreciated that the information sought be received within 10 days.

Yours sincerely,

Marcus

Good afternoon Marcus,

 

Please find below the information you sought from the Department on 10
September 2018 (detailed in your email below):

 

·         The name of the Department’s current FMIS is DXC Eclipse e5
(locally known as DOLARS).  The system was implemented in August 1998. 
The name at the time of implementation was QSP Financials.

 

·         The Department’s current EDRMS is called Content Manager version
9.1.  The current version was updated into production in October 2017. 
The Department has used the HP product suite for its EDRMS purposes since
February 1998.

 

·         The Department only uses one predominant EDRMS (CM9).  Like all
other government departments, the Department uses PDMS for ministerial and
executive communication only.  PDMS is an EDRMS as well.

 

This information is provided external to the Freedom of Information Act
1982.

 

We hope the above assists. Please contact us if you have any further
questions about your request or the information provided.

 

Kind Regards,
