Texas Agencies Contract With Oracle

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission (TNRCC) said they are redesigning their separate information systems using Oracle Corp. client/server technology. TPWD, which manages the state's park system, will be moving from a mainframe-based financial system to a more integrated system that handles accounts payable and receivable, inventory and fixed-asset management, purchasing and project accounting. Meanwhile, TNRCC will use Oracle products to enable electronic access to environmental inquires.
