NEA to use Transportation's Delphi financial system

The National Endowment for the Arts has selected the Web-ready Delphi Financial Management System, developed by the Transportation Department, for its new finance system.

Under a recent agreement with Transportation, NEA will use Delphi to manage its annual $117 million budget and produce financial statements for audits. Delphi is built on Oracle Federal Financial Version 11i and uses an Oracle8i database on the back end.

Transportation's Enterprise Services Center at the Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center in Oklahoma City developed Delphi. The first use of the system was by DOT's Federal Railroad Administration as a pilot in 2000. Since then, Transportation has converted all its agencies to the integrated system. The last agency, the Federal Aviation Administration, adopted Delphi in the fall.
