Georgia Improves Statewide Purchasing Accountability with Oracle Procurement Solution

The state of Georgia’s centralized procurement organization implemented Oracle’s PeopleSoft applications to improve its supplier relationship management processes and increase visibility into its purchasing data.

Thanks to the Oracle solution, the Georgia Department of Administrative Services, State Purchasing Division, can now more easily analyze spending across state agencies and categories, as well as negotiate statewide contracts. The state worked with CherryRoad Technologies, a systems integration and consulting firm, on the implementation.

“Georgia’s Commission for a New Georgia recognized a need for improved efficiency within state procurement processes,” says Gina Tiedemann, assistant commissioner of operations, Georgia Department of Administrative Services. “To support this procurement transformation, we deployed an expanded PeopleSoft environment that enables us to be more strategic about our purchasing, which ultimately means we are better equipped to optimize taxpayer dollars.”

The Georgia State Purchasing Division received the Institute for Supply Management’s Excellence in Supply Management award in the technology category.

The new procurement solution consists of The state now sees line-item detail on purchases and can pull spending data from across agencies and at the state level, which improves statewide accountability and budget optimization. Since implementation, the state purchasing division has reduced the average requisition-to-purchase order cycle across agencies from more than 6.07 days to 3.8 days.

The Oracle system also saves time and reduces paper use by converting paper-based payment packages containing contracts, RFPs, and other documentation into electronic files.
