The NextGen Project has reached another major milestone! Deloitte has been selected as the project’s System Implementer! This selection officially kickstarts Phase 2 (Implementation) of the project!
Project Resources Identified
Invitations have been sent to subject matter experts throughout the State enterprise to serve as part of the implementation team. Those experts will serve in various roles, lending expertise in Human Capital Management, Finance and/or Procurement as we work with Deloitte to build out what Workday will look like for Georgia.
That doesn’t mean others are left out. As the project progresses there will be opportunities to review new process designs, participate in testing and training.
Thank you to everyone who has already or will be participating as part of this project. Your knowledge and time are critical to the success of NextGen!
With Deloitte onboard as NextGen’s System Implementer, the project is now entering Phase 2. As Phase 2 picks up, implementation activities will begin. The project team will participate in a project launch, engage in Workday configuration training, begin development of our new foundation data modelmodel, and start scheduling design sessions with Deloitte.
NextGen Project Phases
During Phase 2, the team will continue working with agencies on data cleanup, preparing data to be incorporated and centralized in the Workday system. Some of the current efforts include resolving open purchase orders (PO) from the prior fiscal year (FY), FY23 requisitions with no corresponding open PO, and out-of-date contracts that are no longer needed. Analysts are reviewing specific cases, such as unapproved leave, and are reaching out to agencies to guide them through the clean-up process. Data cleanup efforts will occur during the remainder of 2023 and into 2024.
