Washington Community and Technical College System Picks Ciber To Deploy and Manage Oracle ERP Solution At 34 Colleges


GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. ---- Ciber has been chosen to implement and maintain Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications that will modernize computing and processes at all 34 campuses of the Washington State Board of Community & Technical Colleges (SBCTC) system. In a competitive bid, Ciber worked with the Oracle license sales team and will deploy Oracle’s PeopleSoft Campus Solutions, PeopleSoft Human Capital Management, PeopleSoft Financial Management, Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition and Oracle Hyperion Enterprise Performance Management applications at SBCTC. Ciber will provide its expert application hosting and managed services for the duration of the project.

Called ctcLink, the system project replaces a 30-year-old legacy solution and unites all campuses under a common computing platform, which facilitates standardization. Automation will enable replacement of labor-intensive manual processes, providing for significant leaps in efficiency.

Convenience will improve, as well. Students, faculty and staff associated with multiple campuses will have a single online ID and common set of processes to navigate.

The five-year contract is one of Ciber’s largest engagements to date. Instrumental in Ciber’s selection as the SBCTC implementation and managed services partner was the consulting company’s extensive experience in the higher education market and Oracle expertise. Ciber is a Platinum-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), and the company has completed more than 2,000 separate engagements helping some 1,000 clients leverage Oracle applications. Many of those engagements were within the higher education realm, as Ciber has implemented applications at more than 200 institutions in the United States and Canada.

“This opportunity leverages some of Ciber’s greatest strengths: higher education background, Oracle expertise and managed services delivery,” said Mike Dillon, Ciber’s higher education vice president and Oracle practice leader. “We’re gratified to have earned this contract despite competition from heavy hitters in the industry.”


The State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) is led by a nine-member Governor-appointed board responsible for administering the Community and Technical College Act and providing leadership and coordination for Washington's system of 34 public community and technical colleges. The SBCTC is headquartered in Olympia with offices in Spokane (eLearning) and Bellevue (IT division). Under the direction of the Executive Director, the SBCTC deploys its services to the colleges and other stakeholders from four divisions: Education, Finance, Government Relations, and Information Technology.
