Business Process Modernization Project:
Financial Operations and Supply Chain Management
The Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS), LLC, operates the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Savannah River Site, located adjacent to Aiken, SC. With an annual operating budget in excess of $1.5B, SRNS represents one of the largest DOE labs in the country. SRNS partners include Fluor Daniel, Northrop Grumman and Honeywell.
In February 2009, an integrated project team (IPT) of technical, functional and senior management staff was formed to replace the remaining legacy Financials, Supply Chain and Project Controls applications with a fully integrated business systems solution. The scope of the Business Process Modernization Project (BPMP) was to select a suite of software products and implementation support services that would enable the retirement of all SRNS legacy mainframe and selected non-mainframe obsolete systems in the Financials, Project Controls and Supply Chain functional areas.
“As one of the largest DOE-funded sites we have a very complex set of system requirements. BTRG is delivering an integrated PeopleSoft financials and supply chain management solution that not only met our DOE requirements but also supports management decision-making through the implementation and use of Hyperion, OBIEE and Oracle Business Intelligence Applications. We’re pleased that we chose BTRG as our implementation partner and would recommend them to other organizations that are either funded by or doing business with the federal government.”

After a lengthy evaluation process, SRNS chose Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise as the integrated commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software application to replace its legacy financial accounting systems and legacy procurement supply chain management (SCM) systems. BTRG was selected as both the Oracle PeopleSoft reseller and primary systems integrator to lead the BPMP and software implementation.
The SRNS project is a full PeopleSoft Financials and Supply Chain implementation slated to occur over an approximate 24 month period. The solution designed by BTRG for SRNS consists of a three-phased approach. This approach was designed to promote the introduction of the various PeopleSoft Financials Management Systems (FMS) and Supply Chain Management (SCM) modules into the implementation work stream at the appropriate time to meet the current and future business needs of SRNS.
In order to determine the proper sequencing of the introduction of the eleven (11) modules into the work stream, BTRG conducted an initial planning phase to confirm and plan the project scope and to assist SRNS in preparing the organization for the business impacts resulting from the project.
