JFMIP recertifies four financial apps

The Joint Financial Management Improvement Program has recertified four core financial applications for use by agencies.

The previous certifications, which covered eight products from seven vendors, expired on June 30. Companies had to receive new certification under a revised set of requirements that JFMIP issued in 2001, said JFMIP executive director Karen Cleary Alderman.

All but one of the seven vendors have applied for new certifications, which will remain in effect for three years. Orion Microsystems Inc. of Philadelphia has not reapplied.

The vendors had to upgrade their applications to meet the newer requirements, Alderman said.

The four applications that have been recertified so far are:

  • AMS Momentum 5.0 from American Management Systems Inc. of Fairfax, Va.

  • IFMIS Version 6.0 from Digital Systems Group Inc. of Warminster, Pa.

  • Oracle E-Business Suite 11i, Version 11i.9, from Oracle Corp.

  • MySAP ERP Version 4.7 with Enterprise Add-On for Public Sector and Extension Set from SAP Public Services Inc. of Washington.

  • Applications from PeopleSoft Inc. of Pleasanton, Calif., and Savantage Financial Services Inc. of Rockville, Md., are scheduled for or undergoing certification tests, Alderman said.

    Under OMB Circular A-127, agencies that are replacing their core financial systems with an off-the-shelf product must choose from JFMIP-approved products.
