Examples; 10 of the 967 standard requirements:

  1. If the system is a local one, have you had discussions with the LSP about migration or integration with the NCRS and what migration/integration plans have been identified/agreed?

  2. If every company in a sector is using the same so-called vanilla software (e.g. an SAP ERP system) what happens to the competitive advantage from implementing IT systems?

  3. With ERP, do you think it takes less time to establish a work breakdown structure number (formerly job order number) after receipt and acceptance of a funding document?

  4. Within your code, how much time does it take to prepare a purchase request via SAP/ERP prior to forwarding it to the Approving Official?

  5. How much time does it take to have a completed purchase request approved prior to forwarding it to the Procurement Support Office?

  6. Are you using a shadow system (e.g., database or worksheet used by your code to maintain/track/report) financial data?

  7. What is the technical model for interfacing (e.g. messaging, data warehouse, email, robotics, data download, etc.)?

  8. Do you feel you have adequate support to address ERP questions/problems (e.g., User Support Services, Help Desk)?

  9. Can you use ERP financial data directly from the system without additional manipulation for reporting purposes?

  10. What resources or capabilities do organisations use to achieve competitive advantages through ERP-systems?

    Seems quite handy - going to start using it next month as we're investing quite a lot in it. This will define for us what to do in this space and solve a real problem (rather than chasing shiny objects).
