County Nevada Lights the Way to Digital Government with SAP

With IBM Business Consulting Services, SAP will deliver an integrated solution to standardize administrative processes throughout Clark County and facilitate information sharing to build a strong foundation for citizen service initiatives. Clark County joins neighboring Washoe County, Nevada, the second largest county in the state, alongside a growing list of federal, state and local governments that are leveraging SAP solutions to integrate legacy and other critical data to efficiently manage accounting, budgeting, funds management, procurement, constituent and personnel management activities.
Faced with a tight budget, Clark County turned to SAP to identify the right solutions to help support the growth of the fastest-growing county in the United States, with 5,000 new residents calling Clark County home each month. The county chose tools for financial management, human resources, business intelligence and an enterprise portal as well mySAP Customer Relationship Management (mySAP CRM) to enable digital government transactions that connect citizens and businesses to municipal services 24 hours a day, seven days a week via an Internet portal.
As the area’s principal provider of capital facilities, including Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, the economic viability of southern Nevada is tied to Clark County’s ability to conduct its fiscal affairs in an orderly manner. Likewise, to enhance the quality of life for its residents, the county must successfully address the needs of the community, including those met by the University Medical Center in providing access to health care; courts; social services; juvenile programs; and municipal services such as police, fire, public works and recreational programs. All of the key agencies in Clark County, including Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, Regional Flood and Transportation and the Clark County Detention Center, will leverage SAP solutions to integrate and align people, information and processes across organizational and technological boundaries.
“SAP is bringing to bear its solid public sector expertise and proven technology to enable Clark County and other state and local governments to deliver higher-quality services to its constituents and to attain increased efficiency in its operations,” said Steve Peck, president, SAP Public Services. “SAP and IBM share a commitment to Clark County and all of our customers: to ensure the success of digital government transformation by delivering the best practices, services and processes to help public sector agencies.” IBM will lead the implementation of mySAP ERP with financials, procurement and HR solutions being implemented in two phases over the next two years, with expected go-live dates in Clark County of November 2005 for phase one of financials and procurement and September 2006 for phase two HR and payroll.
