“I look back on this tremendous effort, this journey we have taken on as a state, to do something truly remarkable — to replace hundreds of legacy systems while simultaneously on-boarding over 150 departments. The state of California has proven to have the most dedicated and resilient workforce while remaining flexible through this transformation,” writes Miriam Barcellona Ingenito, director of the Financial Information System for California (FI$Cal).
"I look forward to defining our IT project completion and success based on what functions are in operation. We are focusing on what remains — the final build-out of the system, departments successfully transitioning, and the ongoing maintenance of the system by the Department of FI$Cal."
