The Statewide Financial System (SFS) Program is a New York State government initiative to replace its over 25-year-old Central Accounting System and several agency financial management systems with one integrated, statewide system. An enterprise resource planning (ERP) system was planned to perform the State's primary fiscal and business management tasks more proficiently.
The Office of the State Comptroller (OSC), the State Division of the Budget (DOB), and the Office for Technology (OFT) – have worked together to develop components of a new system. Until recently, this effort involved the integration of two separate financial applications – a new Central Accounting System to be implemented by OSC’s former FOCAS Project, and a centralized State agency financial management system implemented by DOB’s former NYFMS Project.
