Sherpa Government Solutions
| ||Purpose: |

| ||Compensation not to exceed: $338,000 |
The District needs an application and support to produce the annual budget, budget books, and to serve as a database and reporting tool for budget and expenditure reporting. The District is in the process of implementing a new budget development module that is a component of the Oracle system. The Oracle module is not expected to be available until mid-FY2022. Until such time the Oracle module is implemented, the District will continue to need services from its current budget module provider - Sherpa Government Solutions. Once the new Oracle budget system is implemented, the services from Sherpa regarding the budget development module will no longer be needed and the contract will be terminated with no additional expenditures required to Sherpa beyond the payment for services provided.
