LMU has begun a multi-year project, entitled Propel LMU, to transform the way the university uses software to run its HR and financial processes. Two cross-sectional committees, composed of administrative and academic leaders, have been convened to guide the selection and implementation of new software that will replace the existing software, which was implemented in 1998. LMU has also retained the services of an outside partner, Moran Technology Consulting, to work with these two committees on the process of selecting a software vendor and systems implementer. Phase one of this project, anticipated to be completed by the end of 2019, involves the vendor selection process.
Once a software vendor and the systems implementation partner have been selected, the university will be reaching out to solicit broader input from the campus community.
