One Washington – accounting resources

The One Washington program was created to modernize and improve aging administrative systems and prepare the state for the transition to Workday, a new Software as a Service (Saas) Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.

All executive branch agencies will be required to use Workday and, to varying degrees, the other two branches of state government and higher education will also be impacted, primarily because they will share data with core enterprise systems.

Additionally, each state agency/institution has an Agency Support Team (AST) lead that is responsible for facilitating communication between the agency and One Washington and can provide more information about the specific impacts at the agency level.

As the business owner of the state’s financial systems, Statewide Accounting has been working with the One Washington program to prepare for conversion to Workday. Phase 1A, the core financial system replacement includes many key financial areas and is currently Statewide Accounting’s main focus for ERP readiness.
