Moving to a cloud-based modern ERP, led by the UT System with involvement from all campuses and institutes.

The ERP project is a state-wide initiative, led by UT System Administration (UTSA). Efforts have taken place over the past several years to evaluate current processes and prepare for a new ERP implementation. In 2021, efforts began to reimagine UT’s current business processes and to select a software platform. More information about the project timeline can be found at dash-erp.tennessee.edu/timeline.
