Oracle Fusion Programme - Phase 1 Implementation Update


As part of our wider digital transformation programme, we have now completed Phase 1 of Oracle Fusion. The Council has now replaced all Finance and Procurement Systems. This includes Oracle EBS, iProc and Ash Debtors.

Our new system is cloud based, delivered as a suite of modules, and built with security as a priority. Therefore, Fusion will ensure the Council has an improved, easier to use and more efficient Finance and Procurement system in place.

We have put together a step-by-step guide of what to do if you have a question on Fusion.

Why did we replace the existing system?

Oracle Fusion uses the latest technology and industry best practice. Other improvements include:

  • Cloud based – ability to access anytime, anywhere
  • Updates – quarterly system upgrades are pushed out automatically by Oracle
  • Single source of truth – all Finance and Procurement data from one source helps with efficiencies
  • Enhanced user experience – all data from one source
  • Supports the overall Council strategy – maximising self-service
  • The Procurement team will create a Fusion Purchase Order when the system is operational. This Purchase Order number will be sent to the requestor to confirm goods/works have been received/completed by updating the relevant purchase order.
  • The Fusion Purchase Order will reference the emailed Requisition and PO number to ensure the Supplier/Contractor does not duplicate any Deliveries/works/charges to the Council.
