InPower Inc. and KPMG Peat Marwick LLP add U.S. Courts as clients.
U.S. Courts also selected KPMG Peat Marwick LLP, an implementation specialist in public sector systems, to assist in the implementation process.
As part of its effort to modernize systems, the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, headquartered in Washington D.C., undertook a lengthy search prior to awarding the contract for a Human Resources Management Information System. The contract encompasses all software, training and technical services necessary to acquire, install, configure, modify and implement the system.
As a result of a full and open competition, InPower and KPMG were selected to provide the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts with a Human Resources Management Information System and implementation services, respectively, based on both technical and price considerations.
The system will have approximately 30,000 users in 800 locations. The Administrative Office of the United States Courts currently operates the personnel and payroll functions from a central location.
InPower, a leading provider of client/server-based human resources management systems offers customers superior technology, total compensation management, competency-based deployment and a strategic HR business model. InPower's HRMS enhances employee effectiveness and leverages information so that management can best use its most important asset, people.
InPower Federal is a forward-engineered, models-based strategic HRM application tailored to meet the specialized needs of Federal Government agencies. It includes all of the best-practice capabilities of the commercial InPower Series, plus additional terminology, forms and events required within the Federal Government (e.g. auto-WIGI feature, SF-52s, SF-50s).
Mike Green, InPower president & CEO, stated: "The addition of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts to our select federal customer base is wonderful news. This office manages a host of different entities, which drove the need for a forward-engineered HR and Pay solution. It gives me great pleasure to know that it selected InPower to meet its needs."
"KPMG is pleased to be a business partner with InPower in this important implementation," added Ronald Reynolds, partner, KPMG Peat Marwick LLP. "The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts is embarking on an ambitious, far-reaching technology project that will determine the effectiveness of its human resources operations well into the next century.
"The project will result in the re-engineering of the Court's human resource business processes, as well as the reshaping of its technical environment, potentially throughout the Courts and the Judiciary nationwide. We believe that the implementation will result in a world-class HR product for the U.S. Courts, and KPMG is proud be a part of that process."
