Business Case for Maintaining Agency Business Systems

In accordance with Proviso language in section 2317A of the 2016 General Appropriations Act (GAA), the Department of Financial Services (DFS) contracted with a third party consulting firm to complete the business case for maintaining any of the agency business systems identified in Attachment 2 of the March 31, 2014, Florida Department of Financial Services FLAIR Study, version 031, after the Florida Accounting Information Resource (FLAIR) subsystem and the Cash Management Subsystem (CMS) are replaced. Upon completion, the business case was submitted on November 1, 2016 to the Executive Office of the Governor, the President of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives per Proviso.

At a minimum, the business case shall include:

  • A detailed description of the functionality provided by the agency business system;
  • Confirmation that the agency business system’s functionality is not planned to be included in the replacement of the FLAIR subsystem and CMS; and
  • Documentation including federal and state law, rule, or policy, which validates that the agency is required to maintain the functionality currently provided by the agency business system instead of modifying its business processes.
