Bush policies boost ERP

Federal spending on enterprise resource planning will almost double in the next five years, according to the market research and consulting firm Input Inc. of Chantilly, Va.

ERP has a compound annual growth rate of 13 percent and is expected to increase from $3.5 billion in fiscal 2002 to more than $6 billion in fiscal 2007, according to an Input study.

The growth in ERP can be largely attributed to President Bush's Management Agenda, said Payton Smith, Input's manager of public-sector market analysis services.

"Improved financial management and human resources management are two points explicitly addressed by the president's management agenda," Smith said.
