Summary of Follow-Up Items for the RPP Task Force  

Common Management System (CMS)
The Common Management System (CMS) is a CSU system-wide initiative designed to replace current disparate and outdated administrative systems with a common integrated system. Application areas include Student Administration, Finance, and Human Resources. The timeframe for the systemwide project is 7 years.

Long Beach is in the first group of campuses to implement Human Resources and Finance. The Student Administration system is the largest in scope and most complex element of CMS. Current plans assume that implementation will begin this fall with anticipated full implementation by Fall 2003.

The cost estimates for the project have been refined to reflect a more complete understanding of the requirements. A base budget of $950,000 was allocated in a previous budget cycle. To this budget, RPP is recommending an additional base allocation of $500,000 to cover the revised cost of implementing the Student System.

Several years ago, a financing plan for this project was designed and implemented which provided an annual budget allocation over 10-12 year period to cover the implementation costs. This financial plan has been modified to reflect the recommended base budget of $1,450,000 with a repayment schedule over the next 12 years.

A campus-wide CMS Steering Committee has been established to oversee the work of the CMS Project and to monitor the costs. The steering committee will provide semi-annual status reports to the RPP Task Force.
