Faster, more affordable government with OnBase.
OnBase is a proven enterprise content management solution for each level of government, helping each meet today’s challenges of smaller budgets and staffs while laying the foundation for simplified, efficient and mobile government information technology.
Finance and Administration Solutions keep vital government functions and responsibilities moving forward, saving time and eliminating costs. Meet today’s challenges by digitizing paper documents and automating processes surrounding them.
Agenda Management Software For Government
Gathering and scheduling meeting agenda items that exist in emails, documents, spreadsheets and paper is time consuming for your staff. Knowing they have the latest versions of documents can also be difficult. After hours of printing and collating, last-minute changes and ad-hoc items only add pressure to already tight deadlines. An OnBase Agenda Management solution automates the labor-intensive approval, assembly and distribution of agenda management and minutes management tasks, speeding up legislative processes.
With the OnBase Agenda Management solution, users:
- Auto-create, assemble and update packets instantly
- Stay on top of requests by tracking submissions using workflow automation
- Choose a solution with the flexibility and scalability to meet their changing enterprise needs
With the Agenda Management solution, packet assembly takes much less time than manual systems and enhances your view of the process and status of individual agenda items. While staff centrally manage requests and automatically send agendas on for approval, workflow automation and a built-in audit trail enforce the proper review and approval procedures. Agendas and minutes can be published to the web or other solutions, and clerks can automate follow-up actions and track agenda items after a meeting.
Whether you’re publishing agendas to a website or other solutions, OnBase connects systems and increases efficiency and transparency. With the OnBase Agenda Management solution, you can use your OnBase foundation across your organization to meet the needs of individual departments and processes whether it is your first OnBase purchase or an expansion of your enterprise content management (ECM) strategy.
Government Contract Management Solutions
Eliminate risk and remain compliant with OnBase Government Contract Management software
Your agency manages, tracks, review and approves volumes of contracts every fiscal year. Contract reviews, retrievals and timely renewals are critical to managing projects, grant and purchases. OnBase Contract Management transforms your contract management efforts by capturing, storing, routing and notifying staff of necessary tasks they must do to complete contract reviews and renewals on time.
Using OnBase, government agencies can:
- Schedule alerts for contract review, renewal and deletion
- Shorten lengthy audits by automatically tracking all contract modifications
- Centralize storage with permission-based access and edit rights
Since OnBase stores documents digitally, your agency can further transparency efforts by publishing contracts to your website, helping you meet new legal responsibilities for providing access to contracts. With central, secured storage, you can also create self-service access for staff and constituents, allowing staff to handle more work without interruption. With OnBase Contract Management, your agency easily retrieves contracts, provides self-service access and automates and enforces review processes, ensuring you never miss a renewal that can help your organization continue favorable pricing terms.
Native Integration - Connect OnBase With Your ERP System For Faster Processing and Increased Transparency
Many agencies have turned to ERP systems like PeopleSoft®, SAP®, Oracle, JD Edwards® and Lawson to manage invoice processing, procurement tasks, contract management, credentialing and certifications – many of which also rely on document. Switching between paper and data systems not only slows down staff but creates more work for them, including taking time to make photocopies and use intra-office mailto transport documents, further slowing down processes.
Paper also derails another government trend, transparency – constituents, vendors and staff are challenged to know the status of transactions and processes when they are buried in paper documents or tracked in dozens of manual tracking systems created by overworked staff.
OnBase connects your ERP with related documents, automating processes and creating transparency for financial and human resources tasks. OnBase provides decision-makers with complete visibility into processes, providing audit trails, real-time reporting and executive dashboards. Capture documents immediately and extract data to reduce or eliminate indexing. Then, with OnBase Workflow, notify, view, route and manage documents directly from ERP screens, allowing staff to work in their familiar work environment.
Government Public Records Management
Increase government transparency with OnBase Public Records solutions
Access to public records is a cornerstone of an open, transparent government. Clerks, courts and many other agencies are fielding more requests for documents than ever before, but with staff reductions, meeting these requests means other work can’t get done. While constituents continue to request better online services, government departments and agencies are still working with decades of paper documents.
OnBase Public Records solutions further transparency and open government initiatives by helping departments meet legal responsibilities for providing access to public records. From easy retrieval for staff in public offices to online request tools and automated records packet creation, OnBase helps organizations meet records requests in a timely fashion. OnBase features tools for retrieving and bundling documents to meet records requests, provide constituent self-service access, automate the request process, make documents available for sale online and even redact confidential information – all while lowering costs and providing staff with more time to focus on other important initiatives.
Using OnBase, agencies can start by automating records retrieval and leverage the solution as time, budget and goals permit to provide constituents with self-service and online access to records.
Human Services & Housing Solutions for Government

Manage increasing caseloads with OnBase for affordable housing
Today, every dollar counts for housing agencies as they face great need from constituents.
