SCEIS Executive Oversight Committee
To help manage its core finance, procurement, human resources and payroll functions more efficiently and effectively, the State advanced a vision to establish a single enterprise information system for South Carolina. This proposed system, designated as the South Carolina Enterprise Information System (SCEIS), would be used by all 74 agencies, commissions and boards that process their respective financial and payroll information through the Comptroller General’s legacy applications today.
The principal objectives of this strategy are to reduce the State’s administrative costs; improve the accuracy, timeliness and security of financial transactions and information; and improve services provided to the State’s citizens and businesses. The SCEIS strategy also includes a complementary objective of reducing the State’s reliance on paper forms and documents by integrating document imaging software and services into the SAP solution.
To help guide and coordinate statewide implementation activities, the Comptroller General joined with other key State agencies to establish the Oversight Committee and SCEIS User Group. In addition to the Comptroller General, the Oversight Committee includes representatives from the South Carolina Budget and Control Board, Office of the State Treasurer, Office of the State Auditor, South Carolina Department of Mental Health, South Carolina Department of Revenue and South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control.
The Oversight Committee strategically guides and coordinates SCEIS from a statewide perspective. It also provides direct executive support for all implementation activities, including assistance in acquiring funding and working with the executive and legislative leadership of the State to promote the project.
The SCEIS User Group currently includes senior financial personnel from 19 South Carolina State agencies. The User Group works with the Oversight Committee to help identify, communicate and advance discussion and resolution of user requirements and issues.
