Challenges

  • Staff lack the ability to make impactful decisions because of time spent closing the books.
  • Paper processes make it difficult to locate copies of documentation to help manage county-mandated competitive-bid purchasing processes that require bids to align with invoices and purchase orders, especially for exceptions.
  • Requisition process includes too many manual steps and too much intervention from the purchasing staff.
