The District is implementing a new enterprise resource management solution (ERP), which requires dedicated subject matter experts from multiple administrative offices. These subject matter experts are dedicating significant work hours to the implementation project. In order to ensure that routine work will continue to be accomplished during the project, periodic
temporary staffing may be required. Creating a qualified list of temporary staffing firms that can fulfill different types of personnel needs (i.e. HR staff, budget analysts, etc.) will allow Department managers to fill short term needs on an as-needed basis throughout the ERP project. The duration and costs of these contracts are being extended due to the extension of the timeline for implementation of the new ERP.
