OCFS Adapts to New Statewide Financial System

OCFS's Contract Management System Adapts to NYS's New Statewide Financial System

Pasted Graphic
Major changes to New York State's financial processes took place this year when its Statewide Financial System (SFS) went live in April 2012. As a result, the isC team at the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) had to adapt the OCFS Contract Management System (CMS) and its bulkload procedures in order to integrate all contract and financial data from CMS with the new Statewide Financial System (SFS). Significant application changes were also successfully made to accommodate the new SFS business rules so agency business can continue seamlessly. The team continues to make necessary changes to the CMS application and its procedures as SFS business rules continue to evolve.
