Financial Management/ERP system

Received: 29 July 2021

Dear Officer,

I would like to raise a Freedom of Information Request regarding your Financial Management/ERP system:

* What Financial Management/ERP System does the council use?
* Who is ultimately responsible for the system (name and title)?
* How many users access the system across the council?
* Is the system hosted locally or is it a cloud solution?
* Does the council intend to move the system to the cloud?
* When did the contract commence and when will it expire?
* Do you intend to evaluate alternative solutions when the contract expires?
* Are you in a shared service for either ICT or Financial Management/ERP?

* If yes, what is the nature of the shared service?

* If no, what plans do you have for shared service/partnership working?

If the Finance system is run/managed in-house:

* What is the annual software (licence and support) charge payable to the Financial Management/ERP system provider?
* What was the initial capital cost of the system payable to the supplier?

If the Finance system is hosted remotely (via the cloud):

* How are the annual charges made up (software licence/support charge, hosting charge etc.)?

I appreciate your time & response to my FOI request
