GEARS Update from Frank Broccolina (06/2013)


I have been informed that the Order to Cash/BUS functionality in GEARS requires more testing but that the other core processes including requisitions, purchase orders, vouchering, general ledger, inventory, and expense forms are ready for implementation. Given the extent of our preparation, I think it is in our best interest not to delay the entire project further. We will proceed with GEARS implementation on July 1 as scheduled but delay the Order to Cash/BUS component for an additional 30 days to complete testing fully.

The delay for Order to Cash/BUS implementation will require current processes for this function to remain in place to handle revenue, certificates of deposit, local disbursements, revenue refunds, and Foxpro. The Department of Budget and Finance will continue to receive data from the courts as it does today and enter that information directly into GEARS. Those courts sending daily data files electronically through RCS will be contacted by the RCS team for further instructions on how to provide daily submissions to the AOC.

If you have any questions, please contact Tammy Sitar at or Theresa Nudell

Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.
