Job Description:
Central Accounts Payable System (CAPS) is an n-tiered web based application used for Administration of Financial Operations. The CAPS application modules together provide an integrated enterprise solution to support the Bureau of Financial Operations (BFO) and Bureau of Budget Management (BBM). CAPS application interfaces with internal OCFS applications, Office of the State Controller (OSC), Statewide Financial System (SFS), Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA), and CMA for LATS-NY.

The application provides for automated invoice, billing, revenue processing, and auditing of payments.
