The State of Florida has embarked on a multiyear endeavor to replace the current accounting and cash management systems with a cloud-based financial management solution. The Florida PALM Project commenced on July 1, 2014. Readiness activities began shortly after the Project’s initiation and have been carried out since. Achievements and milestones of the first four years of planning and procurement activities can be found in the phase closeout report. The contract for a modern, integrated software and implementation support services was signed on July 20, 2018.
The Florida PALM Team is partnering with agencies to design, build, and implement a standardized, scalable, statewide system that will enhance Florida’s business practices and position Florida for future innovation.
The first transition to Florida PALM is scheduled for July 2021. View the Project Timeline for details on the implementation schedule.
