The recently completed implementation of the Cardinal statewide financial management system was a complex multiyear project. Launched in 2009, the Cardinal Project was implemented using a phased approach. Implementations began with VDOT in 2011 and DOA the following year in 2012. All remaining state agency implementations occurred in 2 waves: Wave 1 agencies deployed in 2014, and Wave 2 deployed in 2016.
Between 2009 and 2016, Oracle released a new version of its PeopleSoft applications, PeopleSoft 9.2. However, an upgrade to the current version was put on hold until all agencies successfully implemented Cardinal. With all Commonwealth agencies now deployed, we have begun work on upgrading Cardinal to PeopleSoft 9.2, as well as updating the underlying technical architecture.
Below is the Cardinal Upgrade Timeline that provides a breakdown of the project phases between now and Go-Live, which is March 1, 2017.
