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.

ISC Plays Key Role at NYS OCFS

The Contract Management System (CMS) is a comprehensive web-based system for managing contracts for the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS), from development and generation through review, approval, payment and maintenance.

ISC Performs Gap Analysis at NYSDOH for CMS

In the spring of 2008, Consilium conducted a series of gap analysis sessions at the New York State Department of Health (DOH) as an initial step in implementing the Contract Management System (CMS) at that agency. The objectives of the engagement were threefold. First, the analysis would identify CMS functionalities that would require modification or enhancement in order to conform to DOH business rules and requirements. Second, an assessment would be made of modifications needed to accommodate the DOH technical architecture, as well as both internal and external interfaces, such as the bulkload process with the New York State Central Accounting System via the DOH financial system. And finally, a data conversion plan would be developed.
