General

What is One Washington?

Washington state government operates like many businesses, just on a larger scale. It operates computerized administrative systems to create and manage budgets, pay employees and vendors, manage human resources, monitor spending and investments, and purchase goods and services — all in support of the mission to serve Washingtonians and be good stewards of taxpayer resources.

Scope

Back to One Washington home page

The scope of the One Washington program is the implementation of an ERP software as a service solution for the state’s core business functions: finance, procurement, human resources, payroll and budget, as well as the technical features that must be supported. Implementation of the new system will result in the replacement of such systems as AFRS and TRAINS, as well as many other legacy and shadow systems throughout the state.

Faster, more efficient and more secure: Washington state’s business systems will get some major tech updates

Gov. Jay Inslee recently signed an executive order that directs Washington state agencies to update many of the state’s technology systems — some of them from the dinosaur era, in computer years. These systems help the state continue uninterrupted services to Washingtonians and are overdue for important and more current technology updates.
