JUNEAU -- Dodge County Board of Supervisors will hear an update of the new administrative software project when they assemble Tuesday.

The kickoff for the new Enterprise Resource Planning system was set for May 1 and then it was rescheduled for July 1. However even that date has now been scrapped.

According to a May 1 letter from Dodge County Administrator Jim Mielke sent to all county supervisors and department heads, the new “go live” date is scheduled for January 2020.

Tyler/Munis was selected as the vendor of the ERP system including products, other hardware, software, training, system interfaces and consulting services.

ERP software applications exist to help implement resource planning by integrating all of the processes it needs for planning, finance and human resources.

The Dodge County Board of Supervisors approved the financial software package in July 2017 totaling $2.1 million with a portion of the cost included in the 2017 budget and the remaining $944,680 to come from 2017 unallocated sales tax revenues.

In 2016, Dodge County undertook a study of its financial systems and determined the need to acquire and implement a new ERP system, which is replacing an aging system to analyze and improve the way Dodge County manages its finances.

In other business, county board members will also hear a presentation from Becky Bell, human services and health department director, and Carol Carlson, the treatment alternative and diversion, and impaired driving court program director, on the TAD Program.

County board members will meet at 7 p.m. in the board room on the fourth floor of the administration building, 127 E. Oak St., Juneau.
