Executive Summary Continued on Attachment.
All Strategic Objectives
Negotiations resulted in both software and services at a zero cost increase to the district for the first two years of this agreement. Funds in the amount of $979,000 have been previously budgeted in the Information Technology Department for ERP maintenance.  For tracking purposes, the project number specific to this agenda item is 5002.  With knowledge of the district's financial situation, Infor has lowered the annual subscription fee and deferred implementation costs until year three.  The total costs over the five-year agreement is $13,668,274 and is detailed on the attached payment schedule. This agenda item is expected to produce an overall cost savings, risk reduction and better alignment with audit requirements.
After research and vendor presentations, the recommendation is to move forward with Infor’s WFM subscription bundle as the most cost-effective solution. The addition and implementation of the WFM subscription bundle has a start date of January 7, 2018, with a pilot group of workforce non-teacher employees’ go-live date of July 1, 2018. The remaining workforce employees will follow on a rolling implementation schedule. In addition to increasing Hillsborough County Public Schools’ way-of-work efficiencies, WFM will address the district’s need for a time and attendance system as highlighted in the Phase II Operational Efficiency Audit – Comprehensive Report prepared by the Gibson Consulting Group (2016).
