Contract signed, vendor on board!
The Department of Enterprise Services is pleased to announce that a contract has been signed with Workforce Software of Livonia, Mich, to implement the state’s new Time, Leave, and Attendance (TLA) application.
The selection of Workforce Software was preceded by an extensive requirements building process that included input by a cross-section of state agencies. A request for proposals (RFP) was released in February 2013. The RFP process began last spring, and extended through the summer with proposal reviews, product demonstrations, and finally contract negotiations.
Workforce Software has a proven record in workforce management solutions with over 100 implementations under its belt. The company’s software, EmpCenter ® for Public Sector, is configured to automate complex time and labor policies in government. The software is designed to help large, diversified government employers meet the unique needs of each department, while providing a simple web-based access that can be tailored to each user group.
Project staff at Enterprise Services, Transportation, Financial Management, and Ecology are looking forward to the next phase of the project, and to working with Workforce Software staff. State employees will work directly with the vendor team to not only ensure the implementation meets the state's needs, but to facilitate knowledge transfer and training programs.
