Fit/Gap Analysis – February 6-22, 2007

The fit/gap analysis was an opportunity to meet with two groups on each campus. First, the Campus Advisory groups along with other selected members of the campuses were given a preview of the eProcurement process. The second group was comprised of Procurement staff who reviewed the changes in processes that would impact their organizations. These two groups walked through the systems and analyzed if they fit the intended business processes. They also identified any gaps and made recommendations for either changes to the systems or changes to business processes.
