This position will support the Adoption System Business Case that was approved in late 2007 which called for a comprehensive system that would incorporate all of Adoption Services business functions. Some of these functions include Child Photo listing, Family Registration, Helpline, ICPC, ICAMA, Subsidy for Local Districts, Subsidy for Voluntary Agency, Subsidy Vouchering, Putative Father Registry, Management Reports and Analytical Tools. Due to the large number of business functions that needed to be included in this project, a phased approach is being used to implement and release the solution out in many modules.

Requirements and coding for the first module began in January 2008. This module involved a re-write of an existing system that included Child Photo listing, Family Registration, and the Helpline business functions and was completed by the end of 2008. At the end of 2009, the Subsidy for Local Districts’ business functional was delivered which involved creating a brand new automated process. In the third quarter of 2011, the Subsidy for Voluntary Agency business functionality was delivered which included integration with the CAPS system. The entire Subsidy systems with upgraded with expanded requirements in the third quarter 2012.

After all the Subsidy modules are completed requirements and coding will still need to be done on the ICPC, ICAMA, Putative Father Registry, Management Reports and Analytical Tools.

Currently, this position (only business analyst resource) is in the middle of collecting, documenting and re-engineering the business processes for ICPC (Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children).

This position will perform the requirement gathering, analysis, conversion activities, interface/web services identification and reporting functions. Approval of this request is necessary to provide the adequate resources to complete the Adoption Systems within a timely fashion. Without this resource the Adoption Systems will stall with just the Adoption Album and Subsidy modules being completed. Also, this resource will maintain the current system.

  • Work with users to collect and document business requirements and use cases.
