Defence Upgrades Its 'Roman' Finance System

Defence Upgrades Its 'roman' Finance System

Defence has successfully upgraded its SAP financial management system, with the Resource and Output Management and Accounting Network (ROMAN) application going 'live' on Wednesday 14 November 2007 as planned.

Defence's Acting Chief Information Officer Peter Lambert said the upgrade from the original 1999 system to SAP's latest release, known as SAP ECC6, signifies the completion of the first stage in Defence's ROMAN upgrade project.

"This marks an important milestone in improving Defence's information management systems.

"The upgrade project's first-stage focus was on a software and infrastructure upgrade that has modernised the ROMAN application, which SAP will support until at least 2014.

"It also provides the foundation for further system improvements." Mr Lambert said.

Upgrade implementation was undertaken by a combined team from Defence and CSC Australia. Mr Lambert expressed his appreciation for the team's efforts on getting the upgrade completed on time and considered the roll-out was a good outcome for Defence.

As part of the implementation, system security has been improved and reporting for the Department of Finance and Administration's new AusTender 2 arrangements was introduced. Over 20,000 training courses for ROMAN users were completed through a combination of e-learning and instructor-led training.

Work on the second stage of the upgrade has started with new general ledger functions and improved budget controls to be delivered from 1 July 2008.
