Bill funds computer system for Nevada governor’s finance office
The Ways and Means Committee has voted to recommend passage of legislation that will pay for a new computer system to manage financial and human resources in the governor’s finance office.
AB500 contains a total of $52,393,299 to replace the Advantage Financial and Human Resources system with the Enterprise Resource Planning System.
The vast majority of the money — $50 million — will come from the General Fund. The remaining $2.39 million will come from the highway fund.
It will replace the 20-year-old system currently being used.
That is one of 27 information technology projects on the list this legislative session. Altogether, they total $141.66 million.
The other major system on the list is the $50 million replacement of the welfare child support financial system, formerly known as NOMADS. That system, too, is 20 years old.
The most antiquated system on the list is the $7.2 million needed to replace the system used by the Gaming Control Board. Officials say that system is 40 years old and that they can no longer find employees who can program in the COBOL programming language.
AB500 will probably be voted on in the Assembly Monday or Tuesday.
