Frequently Asked Questions

What is Propel LMU?

Propel LMU is a multi-year project that will transform the way the university uses software to run its HR and financial processes. 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.

Why now?

In the spring of 2017, the CIO convened a working group to develop a roadmap for LMU's HR and Financial ERP solution, Oracle E-Business Suite, which was originally implemented in 1998. The working group, whose work was supported by Moran Technology Consulting, was comprised of the Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, the Dean of the College of Business Administration, the CFO, the University Controller, the Vice President for Human Resources, the CIO, and the Director of Enterprise Software and Programming.
The working group's recommendation was to begin the process of migrating away from the Oracle E-Business Suite by issuing an RFP in early 2020 with the goal of being live on the new software by the first half of 2023.

How long will this project take?

The implementation phase of the Propel LMU is expected to be completed by 2022.
