PeopleSoft Financial Management ERP for the Department of Housing and Urban Development
At the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Federal Housing Administration
(FHA), Orizon was awarded a contract to interface FHA's existing transaction
and business support systems to the new Joint Financial Management Improvement Program
(JFMIP) compliant commercial-off-the-shelf system.
The new system, based on Oracle's PeopleSoft Financial Management,
was to function as a subsidiary ledger that would capture and report on
FHA's financial transactions in a manner consistent with federal rules and regulations. The
system needed to provide the ability to perform daily and real-time funds control,
automate the reconciliation of fund and cash balances, and conduct queries of detailed
case-level financial data.
As the prime contractor for the Legacy Applications Interface component,
we led the project activities required to interface FHA's existing transaction
and business support systems to the PeopleSoft General Ledger. This involved converting
legacy systems accounting data to FedGAAP/USSGL compliant data, and developing
new interfaces with current FHA legacy systems, external vendors, service bureaus
and other Government agencies.
We planned and supervised business process reengineering and fit/gap analyses activities and
improved business processes by using the capabilities of the FHA Subsidiary Ledger to reduce
manual efforts and to automate support for FHA’s funds control, general ledger, cash management,
contract accounting, and asset disposition operations.
