Income Support Division                                    ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

1.     INTRODUCTION

1.A. PUROSE OF THIS REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
       The Procuring Agency (State of New Mexico - Human Services Department (HSD)) is issuing
       this RFP to obtain competitive proposals from qualified organizations to design, develop, and
       implement a replacement Eligibility System for the Income Support Division (ISD). The current
       system includes eligibility determination for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF),
       Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Low-Income Home Energy Assistance
       Program (LIHEAP), State-funded cash assistance programs, Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA) and
       over 30 categories of Medicaid. The current system also includes sub-systems such as Claims
       and the Client Tracking System (CTS).
       The Procuring Agency is looking for proposals for which a substantial portion of source code
       already exists at the time of the proposal submission. It is expected that a Proposed Solution will
       be based on transfer code from another state, a Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) product, or a
       hybrid of a transfer system and COTS product that would require some development and/or
       customization. The Procuring Agency will not consider procuring professional services to design
       and develop a new ISD2 replacement system “from scratch”.
       The Procuring Agency will only consider solutions that completely fulfill the Mandatory
       requirements of this RFP. The Procuring Agency will not accept proposals for partial solutions.
       Offerors may submit multiple proposals; however each proposal shall fully comply with all
       mandatory requirements.
       The deadline for Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), mandated by Federal
       government, is January 1, 2014. The PPACA requires implementation of new Medicaid rules,
       an interface with the Health Insurance Exchanges (HIX), and a mechanism to provide eligibility
       determination based on applications submitted through a web portal.
       The Offeror should propose the implementation of a Complete System, to be implemented by
       January 1, 2014. This is the preferred option.
       If the Offeror is unable to propose a Complete System to be implemented by January 1, 2014,
       then the Offeror shall provide an Alternative Solution which includes the Medicaid eligibility
       portion deployed and in production by January 1, 2014, and other portions of the Complete
       System, deployed no later than January 1, 2015.


1.B. VISION
       The ISD2 (Integrated Service Delivery 2) System Replacement Project will feature the following
       high-level functionality:
          A state-of-the-art system that provides the functionality of all Mandatory requirements set
           forth in this RFP, including those associated with PPACA and the HIX. The new system will
           replace the existing eligibility system (ISD2).
          A web-based system that is easily modifiable, flexible, and scalable to accommodate
           changing requirements and programs. The new system will replace the legacy technologies of
           COBOL, VSAM, IDMS, and CICS.

          All data and applications integrated within a single solution. The replacement system shall
           integrate all data and applications associated with sub-systems. All applications will run off
           of a single data source. The new system will incorporate New Mexico Works (New
           Mexico’s name for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)), Supplemental
           Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program
           (LIHEAP), State-funded cash assistance, Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA), over 30 categories
           of Medicaid, Claims and Workflow.
          Streamlined data entry, eligibility determination, and tracking of household and client
           information will improve Workflow and processing efficiencies.
          Once entered, data will be used across multiple functions of the system. The replacement
           system can support both process and case centric business models.
          Master Client Index (MCI) to avoid duplicate case and client data, and to facilitate data
           retrieval.
          A public facing web-portal that fully integrates with the proposed replacement system and
           that will provide the capabilities to include but not limited to: eligibility screening,
           application for benefits, redetermination submission, reporting of case changes, and viewing
           case status and history.
          A comprehensive suite of built-in-reports and a user-friendly ad hoc reporting system.
          Sufficient flexibility to comply with changing State and Federal requirements over the
           program lifetime.
          A configurable rules-based engine or comparable technology and validation mechanism to
           ensure the most accurate data are represented, allowing for quick and accurate determination
           of eligibility.
          Flexibility to allow the management of business rules by non-technical staff, and not
           requiring a level of expertise that would hinder the ability to implement, alter, and maintain
           current and new programs.
          Built in interfacing capability with the ability to interact with the proposed Enterprise Service
           Bus (ESB).
          Built within the framework of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to easily facilitate system
           interfaces.
          Ability to integrate with other initiatives (e.g. Child Support Enforcement System (CSES),
           Electronic Document Management, and others).
          Scalable and adaptable to allow programs to grow, including the necessary changes to
           support the full implementation of the PPACA as required by federal law.
          A multi-tiered security mechanism that utilizes user and role based security and application
           access capabilities.
          Built within the Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA) to facilitate ease of
           participation in the exchange and interaction of data.

Income Support Division                                    ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

       1.G.3.a New Mexico Human Services Department Resources and Locations:
                   HSD’s operating budget is over $4 billion. Approximately seventy percent (70%) of
                   HSD’s revenue is from Federal sources, twenty-eight percent (28%) is from the State
                   General Fund, and two percent (2%) is from Other State Funds.
                   In 2010, the Procuring Agency had more than 1,950 authorized Full Time
                   Equivalents (FTE’s) and Contracts with community-based service providers
                   throughout the State. There are 34 ISD field office locations statewide and three
                   satellite offices, for a total of 37 offices. ISD also provides services at several
                   itinerate sites throughout the state. There are 12 CSED field office locations
                   statewide, with an additional four satellite offices. There are also eight quality
                   control offices statewide.
                   The Procuring Agency’s central offices are located in four Santa Fe office buildings:
                   Pollon Plaza (Office of the Secretary, Income Support Division, Child Support
                   Enforcement Division, and Office of General Counsel); Ark Plaza (Medical
                   Assistance Division); Plaza San Miguel (Administrative Services Division,
                   Information Technology Division, Office of Inspector General); and Plaza La Prensa
                   (Behavioral Health Division, and Office of Human Resources).


   1.G.4       Current ISD2 System
               Currently, ISD2 is an eligibility determination and case management system that supports
               the administration of public assistance programs. The system is also used in the
               establishment of claims and has numerous interfaces. This application has been in
               operation for over 23 years on legacy technologies of COBOL, VSAM, IDMS, and
               CICS. It was designed and has been operating with program modules that were
               developed in the 1970’s.
               The system has far exceeded its life expectancy. It can no longer sufficiently support
               business operations due to the increasing needs and changing requirements of the
               Procuring Agency, the State of New Mexico, and the Federal government. This system
               will NOT be able to comply with the requirements associated with PPACA. Continuing
               to rely on the current ISD2 system puts HSD at the risk of facing catastrophic system
               failure.
               If the current system is not replaced, HSD will fail to meet the PPACA deadlines.
               HSD intends to migrate from the mainframe platform to a platform that is flexible,
               scalable, modular, and conforms to a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and MITA
               standards. This approach will allow HSD to create interoperable, standards-based
               services that can easily be changed, combined and reused.

              imprinted “proprietary” or “confidential” subject to the following requirements.

              the Offeror’s organization and data that qualify as a trade secret in accordance with the

              sending written notice to the Contractor. The Procuring Agency’s decision as to whether
              sufficient appropriations and authorizations are available will be accepted by the
              Contractor as final.


   2.C.12     Legal Review
              The Procuring Agency requires that all Offerors agree to be bound by the General

              language. General references to the Offeror’s terms and conditions or attempts at

4.A. INFORMATION TO AID IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE
     PROPOSAL
        This section contains system, technical, organizational, and other relevant information Offerors
        should use for the preparation of their proposals.


     4.A.1     Procuring Agency Technical Environment, Facilities and Tools
               The current ISD2 eligibility system is running on an IBM Z/OS v10 mainframe. It is a
               custom application written in COBOL, CICS, IDMS and VSAM. The YES-NM system
               runs on a Red Hat Linux, using Web Sphere, J2EE, and Oracle.
               Technical background information regarding the legacy systems is provided for
               informational purposes. Information regarding each application’s functionality and its
               supporting technologies is provided in the sections that follow.
               Further information on the existing data center, and print strategies are also included. For
               information about the existing network, refer to Section 1.H, “Procurement Library”.
               The Procuring Agency currently uses Microsoft Project 2007, and Microsoft Office Suite
               (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, & Visio). The Contractor shall use these products in preparing
               its project deliverables.


     4.A.2     Existing ISD systems
        4.A.2.a Integrated Services Delivery System 2 (ISD2)
                   The primary purpose of the Integrated Services Delivery 2 System is to provide
                   eligibility determination, management of the Case and Client files, and the issuance
                   of benefits to all recipients for the Income Support Divisions programs:
                   Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for
                   Needy Families (TANF), State-funded cash assistance programs, Refugee Cash
                   Assistance, and multiple categories of Medicaid.
                   The System runs on an IBM mainframe running ZOs 1.7 and is written in COBOL II
                   operating under MVS/CICS with online data stored in VSAM files. There are also a
                   number of DB2 tables where historical data is stored and is the source of some
                   reports. The utilities used by the applications include SYNCSORT, SPUFI, QMF,
                   File-Aid and Platinum.

       4.A.2.b   Claims System
                 The Claims system is comprised of online (CICS-COBOL) and batch (COBOL)
                 components, which access an IDMS database and several VSAM files that support
                 the tax intercept sub-system. The online system is used by Restitution, ISD, Office of
                 the Inspector General (OIG) Investigative unit, and Cost Allocation workers to
                 inquire, add, update and delete debtor claims and payment information. The batch
                 system runs daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and annually. On a weekly basis the
                 Claims system interfaces with FNS’s Treasury Offset Program (TOP).

       4.A.2.c Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
                 The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is a federally-funded
                 program to help eligible low income households meet their home heating or cooling
                 needs. On an annual basis the base for LIHEAP-eligible households is reset to
                 contain any categorically eligible households from the ISD2 system. As those clients
                 and new clients apply for LIHEAP benefits, the ISD2 workers use the online
                 component of the application to add and update application information and
                 determine eligibility.
                 For those clients who are approved for benefits, the batch component of the LIHEAP
                 application generates reports that are e-mailed to the utility vendors by the LIHEAP
                 staff for their authorization. For the larger vendors, such as PNM, files are
                 transmitted via FTP. Once the vendor validates the utility balance and the LIHEAP
                 system is updated, the LIHEAP application generates the payment.               Benefit
                 payments are issued to clients on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Payment is made either
                 directly to the client by L-Warrant or to the utility vendor, either by warrant or by
                 Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) to the Wells Fargo Bank, the State’s fiscal agent.

                  The Client Tracking System captures all communication between ISD staff and their
                 clients as they proceed through the process centric flow. This consolidated view of
                 information allows ISD employees the ability to quickly view a client’s status and
                 historical actions taken. The system includes four process queues to facilitate
                 handling client’s cases efficiently and in a timely manner. CTS also includes a
                 reporting suite to provide supervisors insight into the activity of their staff and to
                 ensure that clients are receiving the proper attention.

   4.A.3      Data Center
              Current project plans are to host all environments within the SIMS data center located in
              Santa Fe. The State will provide the facilities (environmentally prepared floor space) and
              required racks for the proposed solution. The Offeror will have 24/7 supervised access
              and monitored control of all equipment within this area.


   4.A.4      Print Centers:
              The Offeror can anticipate at least one high speed dedicated network laser jet printer per
              office. Further the Offeror can assume a local printer will be available for each
              workstation.
              Central printing is accomplished via a third party vendor. The Offeror can anticipate
              printing services designed to handle high volume printing and mailing requests as one
              time jobs or on an ongoing basis. Print data may either be sent as files ready for print or
              as data streams that are merged with form overlays for remote image assembly and
              printing.
              Central mailing services processes both confidential documents (such as checks,
              warrants, medical information and client information) and non-confidential documents.
              It is the Procuring Agency’s intention to use the existing third party vendor for print and
              central mailing services.


   4.A.5      Current Business Metrics
              The following tables provide current business metrics to aid the Offerors in sizing their

4.B. PROJECT GOVERNANCE

   4.B.1      Procuring Agency/PMO Staff, Roles, and Responsibilities
              The ISD2R PMO maintains the overall authority and control over the ISD2R efforts. This
              is primarily manifested in the ISD2R Executive Steering Committee, comprised of the
              Executive Owner, the Business Owner and Technical Owner, which will meet to review
              overall plans – and progress against those plans – on a regular basis.
              The ESC will rely on the ISD2R PMO for the day-to-day operational oversight necessary
              to maintain control of the effort. The PMO provides depth and breadth of knowledge and
              experience in project management and technical control processes to ensure project
              delivery. The PMO consists of both Procuring Agency and Contract staff. The project
              organization is outlined in Section 4.B.1.f, “Current Project Management Office
              Organization Chart”.
              The ISD2R PMO has been established to maintain overall authority and control of the
              ISD2R effort. The overall goal is to deliver ISD2R on time and within budget by driving
              focus, accountability, and management reporting.
              The PMO is the single entity responsible for the ISD2R. It represents the key
              stakeholders of the overall effort. Below is the high level depiction of the PMO.

              The PMO has two distinct functions. The Delivery function of the PMO has
              responsibility for the management and oversight of the development and implementation
              of the ISD2R project. Business strategy, requirements, priorities and actual development
              and implementation are coordinated within this group.
              The Support function of the PMO includes both project management and support. Project
              management provides the approach for governance through the use of standardized
              methodologies, tools and templates. Project support provides activities such as budget
              management, contracts, communication and special liaisons.
              A clear and transparent governance structure ties all these together to create efficient and
              effective processes. This structure drives complete and transparent communication
              throughout all aspects of the project. It connects owners with processes (issue resolution,
              schedule reviews, budget reviews, etc.), and defines meeting structures for clear
              transparent communication and overall governance of the project. The goal is to:
                     Involve all stakeholders
                     Inform project sponsors
                     Communicate early and often


              The governance structure has both strategic and tactical functions as shown below:

                 The PMO Core team is the heart of the PMO and project operations. It is the
                 transition from strategic to tactical. All strategy and direction from the ESC flow to
                 the ISD2R project through this team. All status, issues or decisions are worked with
                 this team prior to the ESC. The group is responsible to manage all aspects of the
                 project including schedule, scope and budget.
                 This PMO Core Team meets weekly on a specifically defined schedule. The team
                 will review schedules, scope, budget, issues and risk to determine necessary actions
                 or communications. Other project meetings, structures or actions will be
                 recommended or decided by this team.
                 The team members are direct reports to the PMO Senior Project Manager. They
                 include the ISD Business Lead, Business Architect, System Network and Technical
                 Leads, Project Managers, Contract Managers, Contractor Lead and other key
                 Contractor staff as identified in Section 4.B.2, “Contractor Staff, Roles, and
                 Responsibilities”.

                 Sub Teams are formed as necessary throughout the duration of the ISD2R project.
                 Sub Teams will be lead by Leads or key Contractor staff as identified in Section
                 4.B.2, “Contractor Staff, Roles, and Responsibilities”. Sub Teams will be focused
                 with specific tasks or deliverables and primarily managed by the PMO Core Team.
                 Key sub teams formed, but not limited to, will be communication, policy, reports,
                 field, legacy systems, infrastructure and conversion. A lead for each sub team will be
                 identified and responsible for facilitation.


       4.B.1.d Other Governance Meetings
                 Several other meetings will take place on a regular schedule based upon the phase of
                 the project. They will take place one or more times per week depending on their
                 criticality. Below, several key meetings are identified:
                 Issue Resolution Meeting – As issues are captured with the date, owner, description
                 and due date, they will be monitored as long as they remain unresolved.
                 The approach for the issues resolution process is:
                          Identify ownership clearly
                          Monitor status constantly
                          Address concerns directly
                          Escalate unresolved concerns and issues promptly
                 The issue owner is required to attend each week and provide a status until it has been
                 resolved. If the issues cannot be resolved or are passing the due date, they will be
                 escalated to the PMO Core Team and ultimately the Executive Steering Committee if
                 necessary.

                  Daily Defect Meeting – When the project is in the user acceptance testing (UAT)
                  phase, daily meetings will take place to assess the defects, prioritize and plan testing
                  activities.
                  Release Management Meeting – As defects are being fixed and released to
                  production, they will be scheduled through the Release Management Process. This
                  process may have multiple meetings depending on the phase of the project.
                  Go Live Meetings – As the project nears the pilot stage, Go Live meetings will be
                  scheduled to manage all aspects of the implementation. Meeting frequency will
                  increase as implementation nears. These meetings will include all key Procuring
                  Agency and Contractor staff, to review all go-live activities including application

       4.B.1.e Schedule Control
                  One additional component to facilitate the governance of the ISD2R project is
                  schedule control. Schedule tracking and status are as important as creating realistic
                  and agreed upon project plans. This is possible with the ability to track specific effort
                  against a given task or deliverable. It also requires each component of the schedule to
                  be broken down into tasks at a granular enough level to monitor progress on a weekly
                  basis. Throughout this project, all types of items will be tracked such as code or
                  modules to be written, test scenarios to write or execute, defects to pass, training
                  manuals to write, users to be trained, IDs to be set up, infrastructure to be deployed or
                  staff to be assigned.

       4.B.1.f Current Project Management Office Organization Chart
                 The following organization chart depicts the governance structure for the ISD2R
                 project.




       4.B.1.g Procuring Agency Resources
                 For the purpose of preparing proposals, Offerors are to assume that the Procuring
                 Agency is providing the following resources to support the system implementation
                 effort:
                        The Procuring Agency business contingent will be comprised of
                         approximately fifteen (15) business subject matter experts (for JAD sessions,
                         UAT testing, etc.).
                        The Procuring Agency intends to provide approximately twelve (12)
                         programmers and analysts for the application systems development and
                         knowledge transfer portions of the project. However, the Procuring Agency
                         can not commit to the availability of those resources at this time. Therefore,
                         Offerors should assume that the Procuring Agency technical personnel will
                         not be available during the first year of the Contract term.

   4.B.2      Contractor Staff, Roles, and Responsibilities
              Detailed Contractor roles and responsibilities have been documented in the specific
              activities and tasks of Section 4.D.1, “Preliminary Project Plans and Deliverables”.
              The Contractor will be accountable to the ISD2R PMO, per the governance structure
              described in 4.B.1, Procuring Agency/PMO Staff, Roles, and Responsibilities. The
              Contractor’s primary responsibility will be to modify/configure an existing base solution
              to meet the requirements of this RFP, implement it statewide, and at the Procuring
              Agency’s discretion, support it for an additional one year period. The Offeror shall bring
              Health and Human Services (HHS) industry experience to the project, as well as industry
              product (solution) knowledge required for a successful statewide deployment of the
              ISD2R system. The Offeror staff roles that are identified as “Key Personnel” as well as
              desired qualifications for these persons can be found in Section 4.E.3, “Identification of
              Key Personnel”.
              The project organization is outlined in Section 4.B.1.f, “Current Project Management
              Office Organization Chart”. At a minimum the Contractor’s onsite lead and project
              manager will be part of the PMO and participate in all activities and meetings.
              Additionally, other Contractor staff will participate in PMO activities and meetings as
              required throughout the duration of the project.
              The PMO will establish a number of weekly status meetings to monitor and control the
              approved Project Plan. The intent of these meetings will be to identify the true status of
              the project and, where progress is not in line with original plans, put corrective action
              plans in place to bring the project back on track. These meetings will also serve to keep
              all levels of management informed of project status, highlighting major issues and
              roadblocks requiring management involvement and/or decisions. Key Contractor staff
              will be required to attend these meetings as determined by the PMO. Attendance may be
              in person and/or via teleconferencing, as mutually agreed to by the PMO and Contractor.
              Contractor shall attend and participate in all project related meetings requested, as well as
              Executive Steering Committee meetings if requested by the PMO. The Contractor shall
              prepare materials or briefings for these meetings as requested by the PMO.

                      Santa Fe metro area. The State prefers most of the development/customization of
                      the system to be done in the proposed project office.
                     The Contractor shall provide its personnel with the required portable computing
                      equipment and software.

              the requirements into two classifications, Mandatory (M) and Optional (O).
              Offerors must review the detailed requirements and specifically mark whether their
              proposed solution will satisfy the requirement. The Offerors will mark whether a
              requirement is met by indicating a Yes (Y) or No (N) in the “Requirements Met” section
              in the matrix. The Offerors must provide evidence that all mandatory requirements, as
              defined in this matrix will be met. The Offerors will document in the “Reference”
              column of the matrix the location in their response to Section 4.C.1, “Proposed

Income Support Division                                   ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

              BRIEF RESPONSES THAT FULLY AND SUCCINCTLY DESCRIBE THE
              PROPOSED SOLUTION TO THE UN-MET OR PARTIALLY MET
              REQUIREMENTS ARE ENCOURAGED.
              Offerors with a proposed solution that does not address the mandatory requirements, or
              that is not able to be modified or augmented to meet the mandatory requirements, will
              result in the rejection of the Offeror’s proposal.
              Upon contract award, and prior to the ISD2R detail design specification development
              process, the successful Offerors will work closely with the Procuring Agency to refine all
              requirements, and conduct a gap analysis of the proposed solution. Offerors should
              review the supplemental material in the online procurement library to ensure that the
              requirements are understood.


   4.C.3      Proposed Approach to Include Mandated Changes for PPACA
              The Offerors shall describe their approach to the inclusion of mandated changes for the
              PPACA. The description must demonstrate the Offeror’s approach to defining the
              detailed requirements of the PPACA, integrating the defined requirements within the
              ISD2R proposed solution, interfacing the ISD2R to the HIX, and developing a plan to
              meet the federally mandated deadlines. The PPACA requirements must be in User
              Acceptance Testing by January 1, 2013 and implemented in Production by January 1,
              2014.
              As of the release date of this RFP, HSD is responsible for the Medicaid eligibility aspects
              of the PPACA. ISD2R will be required to accept applications and determine Medicaid
              eligibility, and will be required to interface with an HIX. The HIX solution for the State
              of New Mexico has not yet been finalized.
              The approach and plan must address, but is not limited to, the following:
                     The Offeror shall manage in coordination with the PMO and the project team,
                      schedule(s) related to all mandated changes for the PPACA, as well as any other
                      State and Federal program changes, until the final Contract Deliverable has been
                      accepted. A statement of concurrence is required. The cost for this requirement
                      shall be recorded in the Proposal Cost Response Forms (Appendix E).
                     New rules to adjudicate Medicaid eligibility to include, but are not limited to:
                      - Medicaid coverage of all individuals up to 133% of the Federal Poverty
                          Level (FPL) using Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI) methodology
                          (138% FPL with a 5% disregard)
                      - Use of interfaced IRS income data to determine financial eligibility
                      - No loss of coverage to individuals who were eligible prior to 2014
                     Enroll “newly” eligible individuals through multiple channels
                     Operate with yet-to-be-determined State or HHS Health exchange
                     Accept referrals from the exchange without further state review
                     Make referrals to exchange for those found to be ineligible for Medicaid/CHIP
                     System to verify information from applicants electronically
                     Incorporate streamlined application used to apply for multiple sources of
                      coverage and health insurance assistance

                  limited to, diagrams, frameworks, business object model, framework integration, data
                  model, and narratives where appropriate.
                  The Procuring Agency is seeking a user-friendly, web-based system which supports
                  principles of the MITA, and open standards wherever possible. Enterprise
                  architecture should allow the separate, standalone systems to communicate using
                  exposed, shared services through a common architecture. SOA and open
                  standards based software components which are not proprietary to a particular
                  Offeror will have a prominent role in the implementation of the enterprise
                  architecture required by the ISD2 Replacement System. The SOA developed for the
                  ISD2 Replacement System will be used to facilitate functional re-use and data
                  sharing among loosely coupled services and business objects. Services must be

                  loosely coupled to reduce system dependencies and self-contained pieces of business
                  functionality deployed as discrete pieces of code and/or data structures that can be
                  reused.
                  The Offeror must propose a solution that supports a SOA and Enterprise Service Bus
                  (ESB) based solution. The ESB must be based on open standards and allow for the
                  Procuring Agency to leverage existing IT investments. The ESB must be able to
                  support a variety of standard messaging protocols and transform data into a common
                  data format. It must allow the ability to change orchestration, rules, data mapping,
                  and relationships between systems with minimal effort and disruption. The proposed
                  solution must ensure that primary application functions and data are available via
                  industry standard APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), web service call, or
                  other acceptable processes. The architecture must support a Master Client Index that
                  is facilitated by services.
                  A description of the Offeror’s approach to ensuring scalability, stability,
                  maintainability, flexibility, interoperability, supportability, portability, modeling,
                  productivity, performance, and security should be presented. The Offeror should also
                  address the scalability of the proposed architecture to demonstrate to the Procuring
                  Agency that future extensions of the proposed solution will not be cost prohibitive in
                  terms of the platform infrastructure.
                  The proposed architecture should use the latest software products and versions
                  available in the market. The architecture should have the flexibility to upgrade a
                  portion of software used in the solution with minimal effect on or disruption to other
                  software products.
                  Offeror should itemize all software products recommended to meet the technical
                  requirements, such as: search engines, address verification, notices and

Income Support Division                                   ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

           4.C.5.b.3   Hardware / Software specifics
                       The Offeror should list all hardware and software used in the proposed
                       architecture. Hardware and software should be listed by environment in the
                       spreadsheet provided in Appendix P, “Hardware / Software Inventory”.
                       Hardware and software for Disaster Recovery should be listed separately. This
                       list should exclude development tools. Development tools are discussed in the
                       next section.
                       Offerors shall use Cisco, Dell or HP nomenclature for the configuration. The
                       total cost of the proposed equipment configuration shall be recorded on the
                       appropriate lines in Appendix E, Proposal Cost Response Form.


           4.C.5.b.4   Tools:
                       The Offeror should list all the tools used in the proposed network architecture.
                       The information should include, but is not limited to, software Vendor, version,
                       open source/shareware, number of licenses required, and other such relevant
                       information.


   4.C.6      Technical Requirements Matrix
              Offerors are instructed to complete the Technical Requirements Matrix in Appendix D,
              “Technical Requirements Matrix” to document the extent of the technical features of the
              proposed solution. The Mandatory/Optional column contains a value (“M”/”O”),
              indicating whether a technical requirement is mandatory or optional.
              Offerors with a solution that does not meet the mandatory requirements, or that is not
              able to be modified or augmented during this project to meet the mandatory
              requirements, will result in the rejection of the Offeror’s proposal. Offerors are required
              to categorize how their product will address the requirement by using the following
              classifications.
                          Included in Base: Software/Solution supports the requirement without any
                           changes required. Moreover, the supporting software is native to the solution
                           without requiring a third party product or plug-in.
                          Configurable: Software/Solution supports the requirement by changing
                           configuration settings to prepare the product to meet ISD2R requirements.
                           For example, a user-changeable rule would indicate that the solution is
                           “Configurable”. System parameters which can be changed via a system
                           interface are not configurable items – these are base supported elements.
                           “Configurable” means rules changes or data driven items beyond simple
                           parameters will support the feature. See the example below.
                          Integrated Third Party Product: Software/Solution supports the
                           requirement with a third party component that is integrated with the system.
                           Integrated means that access to the feature is direct through the application
                           and no modification would be required to use this solution in New Mexico.
                          Modifiable: Software/Solution supports the requirement by simple
                           modifications to the baseline software code.

Amendment 1                                                                                    Page 58

Income Support Division                                   ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

                         Expandable/Extensible: Software/Solution supports the requirement by
                          complex modifications to the code or by adding a third party product that is
                          not currently integrated.
                         Not Supported: Software/Solution does not support the requirement, and
                          may not be modified or expanded to meet the requirement during this project.
                          As noted above, any mandatory requirements that are marked “Not
                          Supported” must result in disqualification of the proposal.
              The Offerors must provide evidence that all mandatory requirements, as defined in this
              matrix will be met. The Offerors will document in the “Reference” column of the matrix
              the location in their response to Section 4.C.5, “Proposed Technical Architecture /
              Equipment Configuration” where each requirement is met. Offerors must indicate the
              Page Number where each requirement is addressed by the proposed solution. Optionally,
              or in addition, the Offerors may reference supporting materials provided in Binder #6 of
              their response.
              If the proposed technical requirement is not met in the base system, and if the
              requirement is indicated “Modifiable” or “Expandable/Extensible”, the Offeror must
              provide a description of how the proposed solution must be modified, expanded or
              extended to include the specified requirement. The proposed solutions must be addressed
              in this section of the response, immediately following the Technical Requirements
              Matrix. The Requirement Number must be used to reference the proposed solution.
              BRIEF RESPONSES THAT FULLY AND SUCCINCTLY DESCRIBE THE
              PROPOSED SOLUTION TO THE UN-MET OR PARTIALLY MET
              REQUIREMENTS ARE ENCOURAGED.
              To assist Offerors in understanding how to respond using this table, some examples are
              provided. These examples are provided for additional clarification only, and may be
              fictitious. The Offeror’s Page # reference to the documentation must support the extent to
              which the requirement is included in the proposed solution.
                         Example 1: A requirement states that the solution must (i.e. the requirement
                          is mandatory) provide the Soundex type search keys and fuzzy search logic
                          to improve search results. If the proposed solution provides Soundex like
                          search capabilities and these capabilities are part of the source code for the
                          system, mark the “Included in Base” box.
                         Example 2: A requirement states that the solution must provide load
                          balancing of web and application servers in order to improve performance. If
                          the proposed solution does not currently use load balancing, but if load
                          balancing could be supported by simply modifying configuration files with
                          no additional programming, then mark “Configurable” box. Setting the name
                          of the database or identifying the LDAP repository to use is not
                          “Configurable” but a simple parameter change for the base. Changing from
                          single server to load balancing on multiple servers is a fundamental change
                          in system behavior.
                         Example 3: A requirements states that the solution must provide a robust
                          rules engine for managing essential business rules surrounding eligibility
                          determinations. If this is provided by a third party product that can be reused
                          without any code modifications, mark the “Integrated 3rd party product” box.

                        Example 4: An additional requirement states that the “System must provide
                         the capability to connect to and use email functionality through direct support
                         for an integrated POP mail client that can interact with Outlook. This must
                         include calendar functions as well.” If the proposed solution could support
                         Outlook by making minor modifications to the mail and calendaring
                         interfaces, then this is a minor code change. In this case, mark “Modifiable”.
                        Example 5: An additional requirement states that the system must provide
                         integrated support for online reports and forms generation and printing,
                         including both local and central printing capabilities. Suppose the solution
                         did not provide a mechanism for central printing. However, if central printing
                         could be provided by adding a third party product or by developing
                         additional    components      for     the      existing   solution,      mark
                         “Expandable/Extensible.” Additionally, describe how the solution would be
                         expanded or extended to meet the requirement.
                        Example 6: An additional requirement states that the solution should (i.e. the
                         requirement is optional) include a robust Interactive Voice Response
                         mechanism, and the proposed solution does not include this functionality,
                         mark “Not Supported”.

4.D. PROJECT MANAGEMENT

   4.D.1      Preliminary Project Plan and Deliverables
              The successful Contractor shall provide services and staff to perform the following
              project activities:
                  Activity 1 – Project / Contract Management and Support
                  Activity 2 – Technical Planning and Support
                  Activity 3 – Requirements Definition / Analysis
                  Activity 4 – Application Development
                  Activity 5 – Conversion
                  Activity 6 – Testing
                  Activity 7 – Training (Development and Implementation)
                  Activity 8 – Pilot implementation Support
                  Activity 9 – Statewide Implementation Support
                  Activity 10 – Ongoing Production Support
              Each activity is described in detail later in this section, including the specific
              requirements (i.e., tasks and deliverables) for the activity. Each of these activities should
              be performed by a unique set of people (i.e., team or sub-team) responsible only for the
              given activity; however, the Offeror is not constrained from organizing their team in any
              manner they deem appropriate, provided the requirements of the RFP are met.
              To the extent known, requirements for the deliverables have been documented in this
              RFP. However, prior to the creation and submission of each deliverable, the Contractor
              will work with the PMO to determine and agree upon the final format, content,
              acceptance criteria, and review process for the deliverable. The result will be a
              Deliverables Expectation Document (DED) for each deliverable.
              The Offeror shall propose a format for each Deliverable and gain PMO approval prior to
              preparation of the deliverable. This approval process shall include submission of a DED.
              The sole purpose of the DED is to ensure that a common understanding exists between
              the PMO and the Contractor regarding the scope and content (depth and breadth) of the
              deliverable prior to the Contractor beginning work on the deliverable. The complexity of
              the DED should be proportional to the complexity of the deliverable. The DED will

       4.D.1.a Activity 1 – Project / Contract Management and Support
                  For all tasks within Activity 1, “Project/Contract Management and Support”, the
                  Offeror must describe how it will meet the task requirements.


          4.D.1.a.1   Task 1 – Perform Project Management Functions
                      Requirements of Task
                      Upon commencement of the project, the Contractor shall work with the PMO to
                      perform Project Startup and Initiation for the ISD2R initiative. This shall include
                      establishment of a Contractor project team in Santa Fe, New Mexico, acclimating
                      the Contractor team to the ISD2R project, meeting client management and staff,
                      setting up the work environment, and, with the ISD2R PMO, conducting a formal
                      kickoff meeting. This should occur within two weeks of contract start.
                      The ISD2R project requires effective project management to plan, execute, and
                      control to achieve the desired outcome. The Contractor’s role is critical, as it
                      provides the business and system knowledge and experience to develop and
                      complete an aggressive, attainable plan.
                      With the PMO facilitating, the Contractor shall develop a plan for the project and
                      gain agreement on the plan from all stakeholders. This plan shall contain the
                      scope, schedule, staffing plan, cost, risk items, and documented assumptions
                      associated with the project.
                      With the PMO facilitating, the Contractor shall execute and control the plan to
                      achieve the agreed upon objectives of the project. This will include performing
                      impact assessment on proposed changes in scope (i.e., Change Control Impact
                      Assessment), identifying risks and issues, developing and executing risk
                      mitigation plans, assigning specific tasks to specific individuals, tracking
                      resource effort and progress on tasks, and generally managing the staff and
                      project activities necessary to complete the project successfully. Communicating
                      and sharing information with the PMO and other stakeholders in a timely and
                      accurate manner will also be a critical responsibility of the Contractor.
                      At the completion of the project, with the PMO facilitating, the Contractor shall
                      perform project close-out activities. This shall include a review of project
                      metrics and general “lessons learned” from project participants, and shall
                      generate a Post-Implementation Evaluation Report (PIER). The PIER should
                      minimally include a review of the quantity and type of issues encountered,
                      general root causes for the issues, and recommendations for improvement. A
                      comparison of actuals to estimates for total effort, staff-months, number of
                      configuration items, etc. should also be conducted. A formal review of the PIER
                      document shall be conducted with the PMO. This should be completed within
                      one month of project implementation.
                      The Contractor is responsible for managing the interdependencies between the
                      various Contractor teams/sub-teams (e.g., Technical Planning and Support,
                      Application Development, Testing, Implementation Support, and Ongoing
                      Production Support) to efficiently and effectively complete the ISD2R project
                      work.

                      A primary intent of this plan is to identify everything needed from a hardware
                      and software perspective to render the solution – from development to testing to
                      training to deployment in the production environment – so there are no surprises
                      in terms of additional purchases necessary.
                      The Contractor shall also provide a Procurement Plan within one month of
                      contract start. The Contractor shall keep this plan up to date as hardware and
                      software are modified, added, or upgraded, or plans to procure these items
                      change. Each version must be approved by the Procuring Agency prior to
                      procurement being initiated. Contractor’s proposal shall use HP, Dell, and Cisco
                      nomenclature.
                      The Procurement Plan will include a suggested procurement path for the entire
                      infrastructure identified in the Technical Architecture Plan, including
                      Contractors, delivery mechanisms, financing options, and discounts that either
                      the Contractor or a third party Vendor can provide the Procuring Agency.
                      However, the Procuring Agency reserves the right to purchase the hardware and
                      software outside of this contract.

                      provide a disaster recovery location approximately 50 miles from the State Data
                      Center.
                      The Disaster Recovery Plan shall include strategies for backup, failover, and
                      clustering, as well as strategies to address issues related to high availability and
                      rapid system restoration. This plan is due 12 months from project start.
                      As the project evolves and new software and hardware are introduced, or existing
                      hardware and system software are upgraded and modified, the Disaster Recovery
                      Plan must be updated.
                      The Disaster Recovery Plan must be tested within two years of project initiation,

          4.D.1.b.3   Task 3 – Install, Configure, and Maintain Technical Environments
                      Requirements of Task
                      The Contractor will be responsible for installing, configuring and maintaining the
                      technical environments for the ISD2R project. The Contractor will work with the
                      PMO, with the PMO serving as an advisor in most of the tasks. The installation
                      and configuration of the software and hardware shall be the responsibility of the
                      Contractor, as is the maintenance and support of all ISD2R technical
                      environments for the duration of this project. The Procuring Agency reserves the
                      option at any time to install, configure and maintain the technical environments.
                      The Contractor shall provide a classroom training environment separate from the
                      User Acceptance Testing (UAT) and Production environments.                   This
                      environment will provide the same functionality as the ISD2R production
                      environment and will have a training database sufficient to meet the requirements
                      for classroom training.
                      The Contractor shall also provide a post-classroom training environment separate
                      from the UAT and Production environments. This environment may or may not
                      be separate from the classroom training environment, but it must not interfere

                     with classroom training. This training environment will have the same
                     functionality as the ISD2R production environment and will have a training
                     database sufficient to meet the requirements for the practical exercises the user
                     may perform when back at his/her desk.
                     The Contractor must provide and maintain a Capacity Plan document for
                     planning and sizing estimates for all environments, including expected storage
                     requirements, storage growth rates, network bandwidth, backup media
                     consumption, anticipated load, and expected maintenance activities. The
                     Contractor must also identify environmental requirements such as power,
                     cooling, and humidity controls in the Capacity Plan. The Contractor is
                     responsible for ongoing updates to this plan throughout the project.
                     The Contractor must provide a Configuration Management (CM) Plan describing
                     how configurations for all environments should be identified and managed. The
                     CM Plan must describe how configurations will be verified and promoted. The
                     Contractor will utilize the experimental environment for testing configuration
                     changes.      After initial installation, access to UAT through Production
                     environments will be coordinated through the PMO. The Contractor may make
                     use of its own internal CM tool, but anything that is to be promoted must be
                     checked into a repository managed and controlled by the PMO for all
                     environments from UAT to Production. This includes such things as master
                     configuration files, migration scripts for software upgrades, and other CM
                     utilities. The application of most configuration changes for these environments
                     will be performed by the PMO, requiring that the CM Plan be appropriately
                     detailed for general use.
                     In the Installation Plan, the Contractor must describe in detail what is necessary
                     to install the computer hardware, software and appliances needed for all of the
                     proposed environments. This should include staffing and effort estimates,
                     outside contracting resources for services such as power and environmental
                     control, and estimated timelines for procurement of hardware, software, and
                     services.     The Contractor will execute this plan for installation, fully
                     documenting all revisions so the process can be repeated, if necessary, by the
                     PMO or Procuring Agency technical staff.
                     The Contractor will be responsible for the installation and deployment of all of
                     the hardware and software. The staff provided by the Contractor must work
                     closely with the PMO to ensure appropriate knowledge transfer to Procuring
                     Agency staff for the ongoing maintenance and support of the technical
                     infrastructure.     However, the Contractor shall retain responsibility for
                     maintenance and support of the technical environments for ISD2R for the
                     duration of the contract.

          4.D.1.b.5   Task 5 – Perform Technical Planning and Support Knowledge Transfer
                      Requirements of Task
                      It is the Procuring Agency’s intent to be able to perform the technical planning
                      and support on its own at the completion of this contract. To this end, the
                      Contractor shall work with the Procuring Agency to perform a “knowledge
                      transfer” on the technical planning and support tasks identified previously. This
                      knowledge transfer shall involve Procuring Agency personnel in technical
                      planning and support activities from the beginning of the project.
                      The Procuring Agency intends to identify individuals to participate on a full-time
                      basis in technical planning and support activities. These people will have the
                      requisite skills to participate on the team as identified by the Contractor in the
                      System Support Transition Plan (reference Section 4.D.12.b, “Transition of
                      Application Support to Procuring Agency”). The Contractor is expected to
                      communicate concerns regarding specific areas/individuals. If the Contractor

                     feels there is an elevated level of schedule risk; the Procuring Agency will pursue
                     other methods of performing the knowledge transfer for the given area in this
                     situation.
                     The Procuring Agency staff participating in these activities is meant to provide a
                     smooth transition of technical support upon completion of the contract. The
                     Contractor should not rely on these individuals to reduce Contractor staffing
                     levels on the technical planning and support team during the project; in fact, no
                     guarantee is made as to the Procuring Agency’s ability to provide these staff.
                     The Contractor is entirely responsible for meeting the technical planning and
                     support requirements of this contract, regardless of whether Procuring Agency
                     staff participate in these activities.

       4.D.1.c Activity 3 – Requirements Definition/Analysis
                  For all tasks within Activity 3, “Requirements Definition/Analysis”, the Offeror
                  shall describe how it will meet the task requirements. Of particular interest to the
                  Procuring Agency is the approach to requirements definition and analysis. A
                  complete description of the proposed methodology should be included in a draft
                  of the Requirements Definition/Analysis Plan to be included with Offeror’s
                  proposal.
                  Any deviations from suggestions in the RFP should be highlighted and appropriate
                  justifications provided. Outlines or samples of the deliverables may be submitted
                  with the proposal, but these should be kept to the minimal number of pages necessary
                  to communicate the format, organization, and detail proposed.


          4.D.1.c.1   Task 1 – Plan for Requirements Definition / Analysis
                      Requirements of Task
                      The Contractor shall create an overall approach and plan for requirement
                      definition and analysis. This approach should identify the method by which
                      requirements will be collected and analyzed. It should identify iterations,
                      sequential or parallel processes, and documentation. The plan should include
                      timeframes and Procuring Agency staff required to conduct this Activity.
                      The Contractor shall deliver the Requirements Definition/Analysis Plan two
                      weeks after contract start.

                      Requirements of Task
                      Functional requirements will be driven by a Gap analysis between what the
                      system currently provides versus the requirements detailed in Appendix C,
                      “Functional Requirements Matrix”. The Procuring Agency will be responsible
                      for providing subject matter experts and other analysts to further define and
                      clarify requirements.
                      During this analysis, the Contractor will be responsible for clearly identifying to
                      the Procuring Agency what the system provides, how the system meets
                      functional requirements, and what is specific to the State of origin for the system
                      (if a system is transferred). The Contractor shall provide a Gap Analysis which
                      identifies specific development/configuration activities required to bring the

                     system in line with the Procuring Agency’s requirements. The goal of
                     requirements definition will be to minimize changes to the proposed solution as it
                     exists “out of the box”. The Contractor will also produce a Traceability Matrix
                     from the completed requirements to be used throughout the remainder of the
                     development effort, and particularly in mapping User Acceptance Test criteria
                     back to the requirements.
                     The Contractor will use a requirements management tool that uses traceability
                     features to track modifications and code changes for this project. The Procuring
                     Agency will utilize Microsoft Project for scheduling.
                     The preferred format for requirements documentation is use cases. The
                     Contractor must provide a Requirements Document, including a detailed
                     description of the functionality surrounding each high-level requirement. The
                     Gap Analysis will be an appendix to the Requirements Document.
                     The Contractor shall also provide a Requirements Overview Document - an
                     outline of the high-level requirements, their dependencies, and a reference to the
                     details of each high-level requirement. The Contractor is welcome to provide
                     alternative formats and approaches consistent with the overall development
                     methodology.
                     The Contractor shall identify business processes within the Procuring Agency
                     that are missing or must be modified to meet a particular functional requirement.
                     For example, if the system supports a periodic automated balancing of caseloads
                     within a County / Region location which meets New Mexico’s requirements, but
                     is different than New Mexico’s current process of manually balancing caseloads,
                     then this must be listed as a business process modification. The document will be
                     known as the Business Process Change Document. Final versions of these
                     documents shall be due with approval to proceed to Pilot Implementation.
                     The Contractor shall assist the Procuring Agency in redesigning the application
                     form used by clients to request assistance. This will be necessary to facilitate the
                     entry of intake and registration data to maximize efficiency and accuracy.
                     The Contractor shall work with the Procuring Agency to verify that the
                     application form meets standards set by oversight committees and Procuring
                     Agency staff, standards set as a result of settlements or ongoing litigation, and
                     any other standards required by Procuring Agency and Federal laws, regulations,
                     and rules.
                     The Contractor shall develop a design-ready System Requirements Repository,
                     including functional requirements, non-functional requirements, Use Cases, and
                     detailed business rules. The Contractor shall utilize requirements already
                     documented by the Procuring Agency in Appendix C, “Functional Requirements
                     Matrix”.

                      its proposed development approach. The PMO will review and approve this
                      plan. The Contractor’s proposed approach must mitigate risk, maximize user
                      involvement, and result in a structured approach with clear deliverables and
                      releases.
                      It is assumed throughout the application development activities that the
                      Contractor will actively involve Procuring Agency technical staff. The
                      Application Development Approach Plan shall address this requirement.
                      Specifically, the plan will recommend training, document how Procuring Agency
                      staff will be actively mentored, and how development tasks may be assigned to
                      Procuring Agency staff if/when appropriate. As the project progresses, Procuring
                      Agency staff should take a more active role in requirements capture, design, and
                      development, with the eventual goal of the Procuring Agency taking over support
                      of the application at contract completion. However, Procuring Agency staff
                      availability and project schedule demands may affect whether or not this goal is
                      achievable, and the Contractor shall retain responsibility for the delivery of the
                      required functionality per the schedule requirements.
                      Deliverables from Task
                             Application Development Approach Plan – due one month after contract

          4.D.1.d.2   Task 2 – Design System
                      Requirements of Task
                      The design task is intended to translate requirements into a set of deliverables
                      that can be used to drive and support the building of software artifacts – code,
                      configuration data, and rules. Each standard unit of development effort - whether
                      an iteration cycle, a milestone, a functional module, or a release - will typically
                      require the following items:
                             A list of proposed schema changes
                             Web page mockups for new or modified pages
                             A set of high level classes to be implemented
                             A textual description of algorithms to be deployed
                             Business rules to be deployed in the rules engine
                             Configuration changes in the application or framework to enable the
                              necessary functionality
                             Business process diagrams for modified business processes
                             Descriptions of common user interface objects such as menus and other
                              navigational items
                      In addition to the items listed above, Technical Design documentation shall
                      include a Unit Test Plan and a System Integration Test Plan. The Unit Test Plan
                      describes how the developer will evaluate the resulting artifacts while testing the
                      unit independent of all other units. The System Integration Test Plan describes
                      how the developer will evaluate the resulting artifacts while testing the unit as a
                      component of the system, emphasizing regression testing for common objects or
                      other objects that have dependencies to other artifacts. The test plans should
                      include test data, expected inputs and outputs, and any automated testing to be
                      utilized.
                      Database changes will not be promoted and applied to development or higher
                      environments until reviewed and approved by the PMO. Database changes must
                      reflect good database design principles, honoring at least third normal form and
                      proper use of domain related typing wherever possible. Restrictions based on the
                      underlying application framework must be clearly identified and explained. Any
                      requests that are rejected shall be documented and justified by the PMO.

                      The design documents must be concise and accurate. During testing, developers
                      shall update the design documents to reflect any clarifications that were made
                      during development and testing.

                      Requirements of Task
                      The Contractor will have sole responsibility for developing source code,
                      configuration data with respect to frameworks, rules for the rules engine, the
                      batch schedule, and any scripts required to migrate code through the various
                      environments. The Contractor shall unit test all of the resulting artifacts. The
                      Contractor will check the resulting artifacts into the repository managed by the
                      PMO and mark project artifacts as final when they are ready for promotion.
                      In addition to unit testing, the Development Team shall perform integration
                      testing in the development environment, ensuring defects are not introduced
                      when the unit is combined with the other software.
                      The Contractor should provide unit and integration test results to the PMO when
                      an artifact is marked for promotion, including source code, configuration data,
                      and meta data such as rules used by the rules engine. Test results should include
                      as many artifacts as possible, minimizing the number of documents that must be
                      reviewed.
                      It is possible during development and testing that database changes will arise that
                      were not part of the original design and requirements capture activities. The
                      Contractor shall submit these requests to the PMO for application/promotion to
                      the development environment. The PMO shall review, approve, and apply the

          4.D.1.d.4   Task 4 – Develop Technical Documentation
                      Requirements of Task
                      The Contractor is required to produce and update technical documentation for the
                      system, including:
                             System documentation (e.g. object model, system architecture,
                              interaction among sub-systems/modules)
                             Application programming interface (API) documentation,
                             Operations documentation (e.g. batch schedules and procedures with job
                              dependencies, special runs processes)
                             Software migration documentation
                             Development processes (e.g. management of code repository, check-
                              in/check-out processes)
                             Production management documentation (e.g. backup procedures,
                              annotated configuration files, server start-up/shut-down processes), and
                             Other documentation that is relevant to maintaining ISD2R ongoing.
                      Final versions of these documents are due at the completion of Quality Assurance
                      Testing, as well as interim scheduled production releases as agreed upon by the
                      Contractor and the Procuring Agency.
                      The goal of the system documentation is to quickly and accurately communicate
                      information on the technical architecture and operations of the system, thereby
                      reducing maintenance and support effort for the system. The low level API
                      documentation should be automatically produced using appropriate tool, if at all
                      possible. All publicly facing APIs must be documented to facilitate developer
                      training and system maintenance.
                      The Contractor shall also provide Release Notes for every release of the system
                      to Production. These notes will document the changes in the system from the
                      previous release, and must be written in terms that are understandable for both
                      technical staff and end users.

          4.D.1.d.6   Task 6 – Perform Application Development Knowledge Transfer
                      Requirements of Task
                      It is the Procuring Agency’s intent to be able to perform additional application
                      development on its own at the completion of this contract. To this end, the
                      Contractor shall work with the Procuring Agency to perform a “knowledge
                      transfer” on the technical planning and support tasks identified previously. This
                      knowledge transfer shall include involving Procuring Agency personnel in
                      application development activities from the beginning of the project.
                      The Procuring Agency intends to identify individuals to participate on a full-time
                      basis in application development activities. The staff will have the requisite skills
                      to participate on the team as identified by the Contractor in the System Support
                      Transition Plan (Section 4.d.12.b, “Transition of Application Support to the
                      Procuring Agency”). The Contractor is expected to communicate concerns
                      regarding specific areas/individuals if the Contractor feels there is an elevated
                      level of schedule risk; the Procuring Agency will pursue other methods of
                      performing the knowledge transfer for the given area in this situation.
                      The Procuring Agency staff participating in these activities is meant to provide a
                      smooth transition of application development activities upon completion of the
                      contract. The Contractor should not rely on these individuals to reduce
                      Contractor staffing levels on the application development team during the
                      project; in fact, no guarantee is made as to the Procuring Agency’s ability to
                      provide these staff. The Contractor is entirely responsible for meeting the
                      application development requirements of this contract, regardless of
                      whether ITD staff participate in these activities.
                      Deliverables from Task
                             Application Development Knowledge Transfer – due by end of contract.

       4.D.1.e Activity 5 – Conversion
                  For all tasks within Activity 5, “Conversion”, the Offeror shall describe how it will
                  meet the task requirements. A complete description of the proposed conversion
                  methodology must be included in a draft of the Statewide Implementation/
                  Rollout Strategy Document.


          4.D.1.e.1   Task 1 – Perform Data Conversion
                      Requirements of Task
                      The Contractor shall convert legacy data to the ISD2R system. Conversion shall
                      include any supplemental data such as default values or mocked up standard data
                      to make ISD2R a fully functional system. Data conversion, including the validity
                      of the converted data, is the responsibility of the Contractor.
                      The Contractor is responsible for producing a Conversion Mapping Document,
                      which will map the data elements from the ISD2R system to their source(s) in the
                      legacy systems. This document must identify missing or corrupt data items from
                      the legacy systems requiring manual cleanup or data entry.
                      The cleansing of this data is a joint responsibility of the Contractor and Procuring
                      Agency. The development of automated data cleansing processes will be the
                      responsibility of the Contractor, with input from the Procuring Agency, Identified
                      manual cleanup of legacy data prior to Conversion will be the responsibility of
                      the Procuring Agency.
                      The Procuring Agency will supply subject matter experts for the legacy systems
                      (business and technical), data extracts, and direct access to data in legacy and
                      other systems as needed.
                      The Procuring Agency will rely heavily upon the Contractor’s experience to
                      successfully convert data to the new system. Towards this end, the Contractor
                      shall provide a Conversion Plan six months after project start. This plan shall
                      identify the approach to completing all conversion activities. The plan will be
                      updated by the Contractor as conversion plans change. The Conversion Plan
                      shall address such items as how and when data cleansing is performed, timing
                      issues in converting to the new system while continuing to support the existing
                      business, and back-end data reporting and interfacing impacts.
                      One of the main considerations for the conversion approach is to develop the
                      criteria for data conversion in conjunction with Procuring Agency staff. For
                      example, it may be possible to convert the legacy data to ISD2R and maintain the
                      benefit amount from the legacy system in ISD2R “as is”, until such time as the
                      worker applies a reported change or completes the next review. The benefit of
                      such an approach would be to spread the detailed review and cleanup of the cases
                      over the next year. It would also reduce the client questions and additional
                      worker effort from potentially having hundreds of cases converted with changed
                      payment amounts.

Income Support Division                                 ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

                     At this point, the Procuring Agency has determined that the following data be
                     converted. These criteria will be reviewed again when the Contractor is on-
                     board.
                            All electronically available on-line client and case data shall be
                             converted
                            All cases, open or closed, with an outstanding recoupment and;
                            All cases in which an individual has an intentional program violation.
                     The following information may be helpful to the Offeror in formulating its
                     response:
                            Approximately 13 months of case/client data is available in VSAM files
                             from the online legacy production files;
                            Approximately 20 months of end-of-month case/client data is available
                             in the back-end DB2 database;
                            TANF lifetime limits are available from 1998;
                            Benefit history is available from approximately 1998.
                     The Offeror shall propose a solution that allows for the conversion of data from
                     tape archive of the legacy system(s), on average approximately five years of
                     offline history. The conversion criteria should be consistent with the ISD2R data
                     retention requirements that are defined by Procuring Agency archiving rules.
                     These criteria will be reviewed with the Contractor.
                     It is the responsibility of the Contractor to determine data conversion
                     requirements and to develop automated conversion software and scripts for data
                     cleansing and actual conversion. Procuring Agency staff will be available for
                     assistance as described above. The Contractor is responsible for designing,
                     constructing, testing, and executing all conversion software and scripts. The
                     quality of the data conversion shall be the Contractor’s responsibility.
                     The Contractor will produce minimally three mock Conversion runs (fewer if
                     satisfactory results are produced) prior to Pilot Conversion, and prior to each
                     Implementation rollout thereafter. The Contractor will conduct an audit of data to
                     be converted before and after conversion to verify the accuracy and correctness
                     of the data conversion process. PMO shall approve all the results of data
                     conversion.
                     The Contractor shall convert legacy data for testing the ISD2R application
                     throughout development and ensure converted data is available as required. The
                     Contractor shall report on the progress of conversion on a weekly basis.
                     Deliverables from Task
                            Conversion Plan – due six months after contract start; updated as
                             changes occur thereafter.
                            Conversion Mapping Document – due six months after contract start.
                            Conversion Programs (software artifacts) – due three months prior to the
                             initiation of the Pilot.
                            Converted Data – due throughout development and; production version
                             due upon implementation.

       4.D.1.f Activity 6 – Testing
                  For all tasks within Activity 6, “Testing”, the Offeror shall describe how they will
                  meet the task requirements. The Offeror must provide a full explanation of the
                  proposed testing methodology and approach, including staffing, standards, and
                  automated testing tools utilized. The Offeror is also asked to elaborate on its

                      Requirements of Task
                      The Contractor is required to develop a Quality Assurance Test Plan. If the
                      Offeror is proposing some type of iterative development approach, additional
                      testing should be conducted at milestones, or checkpoints, when a substantial unit

                      Assurance Test Plan should be used to conduct this test.
                      The Quality Assurance Test Plan must clearly set forth how the Quality
                      Assurance Test is designed to fully test the ISD2R System functions and features.
                      The plan must identify the inputs to the test, the steps in the testing process, and
                      the expected results. The Procuring Agency may request that certain types of
                      cases and transactions be included in the Quality Assurance Test Plan. The
                      Quality Assurance Test shall be conducted in the Quality Assurance Testing
                      environment.
                      As part of the Quality Assurance Test Plan, the Contractor shall also define test
                      cycles and test scripts, and prepare the test data to address the functional and
                      technical requirements of the given release. The plan should identify any
                      software tools to be used during testing. The testing process must include the
                      ability to advance the testing clock to provide for a complete test of the lifecycle
                      of cases over many simulated months or years. The plan shall provide detailed
                      descriptions of the test environment, regression testing procedures, test methods,
                      workflow, and the defect identification and resolution process to be utilized
                      during the Quality Assurance Test. The test plan must be cross-walked to the
                      requirements and design documents to ensure all requirements have been
                      covered.
                      In addition, the ISD2R system must be able to meet the performance standards
                      and capacity requirements described in the technical requirements matrix in
                      Appendix D, “Technical Requirements Matrix”. The performance testing task
                      will include all batch and online processes within and interfaced to the ISD2R
                      system as a whole.
                      The Contractor shall develop a Performance Test Plan to complete this testing.
                      The plan must address volume tests, string/workflow tests, and stress tests to
                      simulate real production conditions and loads. This plan must identify how the
                      load and performance testing will ensure that the system has sufficient capacity
                      to handle production loads. The Contractor shall define test scripts and prepare

       4.D.1.g Activity 7 – Training
                      For all tasks within Activity 7, “Training”, the Offeror shall describe how they
                      will meet the task requirements. The Contractor requirements for this section are
                      broken down into the following high-level areas:
                             Plan / Conduct Needs Analysis for End-User Training
                             Develop and Provide Training Materials

                             Provide Classroom Training
                             Develop Evaluation of Training and Improvement Plan
                             Provide Post-Classroom Practice Exercises
                             Train the Trainers
                      The remainder of this section provides the detailed requirements for the Offeror.


          4.D.1.g.1   Task 1 – Plan / Conduct Needs Analysis for End-User Training:
                      Requirements of Task
                      The Contractor shall provide a detailed Training Plan six months after contract
                      start, and shall include a comprehensive approach to conducting the training.
                      Acceptable methods include the following, or combinations of the following:
                             facilitated classroom training
                             practical, hands-on exercises
                             support on the job training
                             web-based/webcast training
                             help references
                      The Contractor shall propose appropriate techniques that will ensure end users
                      are properly trained in the new system and workflow. Regardless of the training
                      approach proposed, the Procuring Agency requires that staff be trained both on-
                      site and away from their normal work environment. This can be onsite or in a
                      classroom setting away from the office.
                      The Contractor will create a detailed Training Plan using industry instructional
                      design standards. The purpose of instructional design is to improve employee
                      performance and to increase organizational efficiency and effectiveness. The
                      Training Plan shall include a Training Needs Analysis. This analysis shall
                      include an assessment of the target audience: their knowledge, skills, attitudes,
                      and readiness for training. The Training Needs Analysis must take into
                      consideration available resources and project timeframes.
                      As a result of the Training Needs Analysis, the Contractor will develop a
                      Training Plan that allows for a wide variety of pre-existing skills and minimize
                      the amount of time students are away from the job. The Training Plan must
                      describe both an off-site, facilitator-led training supported by a training database
                      and technology solutions and on-site training. The instructional strategies must
                      include meaningful hands-on training exercises, allowing the student to build
                      upon simple processes and working to more complex processes. The training

                      (by functionality), association of curriculum to user type (i.e., who should get
                      what training), the number of trainers the Contractor will provide, a proposed
                      schedule by office and staff member within the office for the classroom training,
                      and the general training approach. The training approach should be flexible to
                      account for various ways a trainee will grasp and comprehend the training
                      material (i.e., reading, observing, listening, practicing).
                      The Contractor’s Training Needs Analysis will define and drive the specific
                      components and composition of the training plan. The remaining items listed
                      below are required components, but the Contractor will tailor each of these
                      components and offer additional components based on the results of the Training

                      training shall address the needs of a Line Managers beyond just the use of the
                      ISD2R functionality to assist their staff with day-to-day processes. Line
                      Managers must be trained in the supervisory and caseload management aspects

                     of the system to better manage their responsibilities. These additional needs
                     include topics such as quality assurance, reports utilization, managing workload,
                     managing to standards of promptness, and other supervisory requirements. This
                     will enable Line Managers to play a more active support role upon
                     implementation. Line Managers will return for refresher training prior to their
                     office’s scheduled rollout.
                     ISD2R Experts will also be trained prior to the main body of trainees for a
                     specific region/rollout. Training content for ISD2R Experts will be specialized to
                     allow them to serve as the first line of support for end users.
                     The Contractor shall provide initial training for all end-users via a hands-on
                     Classroom/PC Lab. Each trainee shall have their own PC. The Classroom
                     training will begin with a high-level introduction and interaction with the system
                     and will progress deeper into low-level end user system functionality (web
                     pages) and business workflows.
                     Classroom training will be business process driven and specific to the trainee
                     audience. The training within the classroom will utilize a practice database and
                     the actual application (i.e., not a mocked-up version or pre-release version). The
                     larger percentage of classroom training should be hands-on and job-related.
                     Each class will have at least one facilitator and an assistant. The Procuring
                     Agency expects each worker attending training to spend at least 40 hours in the
                     classroom environment. The Contractor will ensure that all end-users that have
                     completed the training curriculum will have the ability to correctly complete
                     activities and functions within the ISD2R environment corresponding to their
                     day-to-day responsibilities. The Procuring Agency expects that minimally 95%
                     of the trainees will achieve this level of proficiency. An option to repeat the
                     training will be available, but the Contractor should expect that the expected
                     number of repeats is already included in the projected staff counts.
                     Minimizing time away from the office, yet ensuring each user is properly skills-
                     based trained, will be challenging. The Procuring Agency is very interested in
                     Contractor approaches to accomplishing these seemingly conflicting objectives.
                     Pre-classroom training may be one option the Contractor wishes to explore, as
                     well as other training options with which the Contractor has had success.
                     Each trainee grouping will receive training that includes an overview of all the
                     functionality, including a clear understanding of how their responsibilities relate
                     to and rely upon all the other ISD2R functionality. The Contractor shall plan
                     different classroom curriculum based on functionality and the results of the
                     Training Needs Analysis.
                     The Contractor shall provide training for approximately 2,000 end users
                     (expected number of repeats already included in this estimate), according to
                     geographic location (region) and job classification as shown in Section 4.A,
                     “Information to Aid in Development of Proposal”.
                     For planning purposes, the following table shows the training facilities that could
                     be made available for the ISD2R classroom training.

       4.D.1.h Activity 8 – Pilot Implementation Support
          4.D.1.h.1   Task 1 – Conduct Pilot
                      Requirements of Task
                      For all tasks within Activity 8, “Pilot Implementation Support”, the Offeror
                      shall describe how they will meet the task requirements. The Contractor shall
                      conduct a Pilot of the initial release software. The Pilot shall consist of at least
                      one medium sized county office, preferably in the vicinity of Santa Fe, New
                      Mexico. The Pilot shall process all casework previously handled by legacy
                      systems in the production environment. Caseworkers will NOT use the legacy
                      systems during or after Pilot (i.e., once converted to the new system, use of the
                      legacy systems for update purposes shall cease). The Pilot should commence no
                      later than the second to third quarter of 2013, and shall run a minimum of 2
                      months before other offices are converted to the new system.
                      This Pilot shall include all of the identified implementation support activities:
                             Training
                             Site support
                             Help Desk support
                      Due to the tremendous visibility the Pilot will receive from stakeholders, the
                      Procuring Agency expects the Contractor to staff accordingly. The PMO, and the
                      Contractor are expected to “do what it takes” to ensure the Pilot is a success.
                      At the completion of the Pilot, the Contractor shall provide a formal report on the
                      Pilot to the Procuring Agency. This report shall include information on:
                             Readiness of the software for statewide use;
                             Data conversion issues and current status;
                             Training issues and current status;
                             Site support activities;
                             Help Desk support activities and;
                             Issues, concerns, and lessons learned for statewide deployment.
                      Based on this report, the Procuring Agency will make a “go/no go” decision for
                      implementing the ISD2R solution statewide.

          4.D.1.h.2   Task 2 – Perform Site Support
                      Requirements of Task
                      The purpose of Site Support is to ensure the successful implementation of the
                      system in the Pilot office upon initial release of the system. Site Support
                      provides coordination of all project-related activities taking place at the Pilot
                      office, and provides staff to perform analysis and implementation support
                      activities within the office. Site Support is required for the initial release of
                      the system only.
                      The Contractor shall provide onsite support 30 calendar days prior to and 30
                      calendar days subsequent to each office converting to the new system. This
                      onsite assistance will supplement the Contractor’s end user support provided by
                      the Help Desk (reference Activity 8, Task 3, “Provide Help Desk Services”) and
                      Statewide Implementation Support (reference Activity 9, Task 3, “Provide Help
                      Desk Services”), providing the higher level of support required for such a high
                      visibility project. It is the Procuring Agency’s expectation that a majority of the
                      user requests for assistance in the 30 days after implementation can be handled
                      by the onsite support personnel.
                      The Contractor shall develop a Detailed Implementation Plan for the Pilot office,
                      accounting for all project-related activities impacting the Pilot office during the
                      implementation period. This plan should address:
                             Communications – regularly scheduled status calls
                             Site Support Planning, including schedule and resources for:
                             Orientation
                             Training
                             Data readiness activities
                             Workflow readiness activities
                             Post-implementation support activities
                             Help Desk support activities
                             Data Conversion Planning, including schedule and resources for:
                             Automated data conversion
                             Review of error and exception reports
                             Manual data corrections prior to implementation
                             Manual data corrections post implementation
                      The Contractor shall perform the required activities for the initial release to
                      ensure the pilot office implements successfully. This shall include, but is not
                      limited to, the following tasks:
                             Monitor progress against the detailed implementation plan for the office
                              ensuring each task is completed correctly and on schedule.
                             Communicate with the central Implementation Manager to provide status
                              and escalate issues. Participate in a daily call with the central
                              implementation team to coordinate activities, discuss status, and resolve
                              issues.
                             Provide an orientation at the beginning of implementation to
                              communicate the plan and the outcomes to the pilot office.
                             Coordinate the local office training schedule with the training group.

                      Requirements of Task
                      The purpose of this task is to provide a centralized Help Desk as a primary point
                      of help for local offices and central office business units relative to the
                      implementation of the new system. This service is also referred to by the
                      Procuring Agency as “triage” to signify the quick assessment of criticality the
                      help requests should receive.
                      The Contractor is to handle help issues related to the application, data, and
                      implementation for the statewide deployment. Issues not related to the
                      application, data, and implementation of ISD2R will be forwarded to the
                      appropriate Procuring Agency Help Desk.
                      The Contractor shall perform the following activities:
                          Communicate the help desk processes to the local office staff.
                          Provide Help Desk support staff during normal business hours (Monday
                             through Friday, 7am – 6pm) during implementation to perform the
                             following tasks:

                                  o   Capture and track Help Desk requests (i.e., “tickets”)
                     For system implementation, the following service levels shall be provided by the
                     Contractor. The Procuring Agency anticipates that a majority of these requests
                     will be handled by the onsite support staff during this period.

       4.D.1.j Activity 10 – Ongoing Production Support
                  For all tasks within Activity 10, “Ongoing Production Support”, the Offeror shall
                  describe how it will meet the task requirements.


          4.D.1.j.1   Task 1 – Maintain and Support Application – 12 months
                      Requirements of Task
                      At the Procuring Agency’s option, the successful Contractor is required to
                      support the system, once implemented in the Production environment statewide,
                      for the duration of 12 months. This support shall include the following
                      categories:
                         a.       Corrective Maintenance – “bug” fixes to correct data and/or
                              functionality not working per requirements. This encompasses the
                              following work:
                                 investigate batch job failures
                                 investigate and correct defects
                                 repair jobs scheduled or run incorrectly
                                 repair problems due to system hardware or software failures
                                 repair problems due to operator/scheduler error
                                 repair problems due to program or control language errors
                                 repair security problems
                                 repair corrupted files/databases
                                 repair documentation
                                 repair problems due to jobs run with incorrect data
                         “Emergency requests” shall be defined as problems preventing benefit
                         issuance, or those having a significant impact on the end user’s ability to
                         perform their job. These requests will require “emergency fixes” and shall
                         be resolved within 24 hours of notification.
                         It is the Procuring Agency’s intent to limit the number of “emergency” fixes.
                         The Procuring Agency intends to bundle corrective maintenance requests
                         together and perform a Production software release on a monthly basis.
                         Non-emergency corrective maintenance requests should be completed in the
                         next Production software release.
                         b.       Technical/Environments Maintenance – Technical/Environments
                              maintenance addresses upgrades to the system due to technical changes
                              to system components to keep the system maintainable, including the
                              following services:
                                 upgrades or patches of application server, operating system, DBMS,
                                  or other system software
                                 software modifications and upgrades necessary because of expiring
                                  Contractor support
                                 hardware, database, or application conversions that do not modify
                                  user functionality


Amendment 1                                                                                 Page 111

                                file moves (from one device to another) due to hardware swaps
                                one-time loads or reformats of user data (due to upgrades)
                                report distribution changes
                                Disaster Recovery Plan activities
                        By and large, these changes should not impact the end user. It is the
                        Procuring Agency’s intent to perform (i.e., release) Technical/Environments
                        maintenance changes in a monthly patch release; for major upgrades
                        requiring a more significant amount of time to develop, test, and implement,
                        the changes should be completed as part of a longer development release.
                        Report distribution changes can typically be completed independent of a
                        Production release; these should be completed on a more frequent basis.
                        c.       Perfective Maintenance – perfective maintenance addresses
                             activities to improve the performance of the application, as well as
                             investigate and fix potential problems that have NOT YET occurred.
                             Perfective maintenance includes the following services but not limited
                             to:
                                improve the performance, maintainability or other attributes of an
                                 application system
                                preventive maintenance
                                data table restructuring & re-indexing
                                data purges to reduce/improve data storage
                                run time improvements
                                replace utilities to reduce run time
                                potential problem correction
                                data set expansions to avoid space problems
                        It is the Procuring Agency’s intent to perform (i.e., release) perfective
                        maintenance changes in a monthly production release or, for major changes
                        requiring a more significant time to develop, test, and implement, the
                        changes should be completed as part of a larger development release.
                        Activities that can typically be completed independent of a production
                        release (e.g., data set expansions, data purges) may be completed on a more
                        frequent basis (e.g., daily or weekly).
                        d.      Application Support – support for the system to keep it operating as
                             expected, including, but not limited to, the following services:
                                monitoring and reporting system performance
                                investigation as to why data was not processed
                                monitoring and reporting computer resource usage
                                preparing and participating in application system problem review

                                creating special holiday, year-end and production calendar schedules
                                preliminary investigation of problems not identified by customer

                             and issues which cannot be handled by the Help Desk. The Contractor
                             shall provide User Support for the application, including the following
                             services:

          4.D.1.j.4   Task 4 – Perform Ongoing Production Support and Knowledge Transfer
                      Requirements of Task
                      It is the Procuring Agency’s intent to perform ongoing production support on its
                      own at the completion of 12 month period. To this end, the Contractor shall
                      work with the Procuring Agency to perform a “knowledge transfer” on the
                      ongoing production support tasks identified previously. This knowledge transfer
                      shall include involving Procuring Agency personnel in ongoing production
                      support activities from the commencement of this support.
                      The Procuring Agency intends to identify individuals to participate on a full-time
                      basis in ongoing production support activities. These staff members will have the
                      requisite skills to participate on the team as identified by the Contractor in the
                      System Support Transition Plan (reference Section 4.D.12.b, “Transition of
                      Application Support to the Procuring Agency”). The Contractor is expected to

                     there is an elevated level of schedule risk; the Procuring Agency will pursue
                     other methods of performing the knowledge transfer for the given area in this
                     situation.
                     This staff is meant to provide a smooth transition of ongoing production support
                     upon completion of the contract. The Contractor should not rely on these
                     individuals to reduce Contractor staffing levels on the ongoing production
                     support team during the project; in fact, no guarantee is made as to the Procuring
                     Agency’s ability to provide these staff. The Contractor is entirely responsible
                     for meeting the ongoing production support requirements of this contract,
                     regardless of whether Procuring Agency staff participate in these activities.

              tasked with resolving the issue at the lowest level.
              The Offeror shall include its approach to integrating an automated issues collection tool
              for the tracking and reporting of issues. This tool should be used by everyone within the
              project so collection and resolution happen quickly. Minimally, the issue date, issue
              description, owner, target resolution time, resolution description and resolution date
              should be captured. Reports showing open, closed, ageing, issue details and escalated
              issues should be readily available.

              (along with other stakeholders), impact assessment (including schedule, cost, and risk),
              and participation in the formal change control reviews. The Offeror shall include its
              approach to integrating an automated change control collection tool for the tracking and
              reporting of change controls. Reports showing open, closed, ageing, change control
              details and escalated controls should be readily available.
              The PMO is responsible for establishing the change control process, including the impact
              assessment, change control review, and formalization of the acceptance or denial of the
              proposed change. Similar to issues and risk management, the PMO owns the processes
              related to change management. This process will be used to suggest modifications to
              agreed upon releases, as well as enhancement requests above and beyond original scope
              of this RFP.

Income Support Division                                   ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

       4.D.11.b   Transition of Application Support to the Procuring Agency
                  It is the Procuring Agency’s intent to support the system on its own at the completion
                  of this contract. To this end, the Contractor shall work with the Procuring Agency
                  and PMO to transition support for the system to State of New Mexico business (ISD)
                  and technical (ITD) staff. This should involve Procuring Agency personnel in a
                  variety of areas (e.g. ongoing production support, data conversion, requirements
                  definition, application development) - during the life of this contract.
                  The Offeror shall describe a comprehensive approach to transitioning application
                  support to the Procuring Agency upon contract end. Offerors should use the
                  following information to guide their responses.
                  For informational purposes, the Procuring Agency intends to assign staff to the
                  project on a full-time basis for the duration of the project. These individuals are
                  expected to become the subject matter experts for various areas of the system. The
                  intent is for the Procuring Agency to have experience and knowledge in all aspects of
                  ISD2R system by implementation. The Procuring Agency expects the Offeror to pair
                  these people up with key individuals from their team. The Offeror will oversee these
                  staff in terms of work assignment only. However, the Offeror should not rely on
                  these individuals to reduce vendor staffing levels; in fact, no guarantee is made as to
                  the Procuring Agency’s ability to provide these staff. The Offeror is entirely
                  responsible for meeting all requirements of this RFP, regardless of whether
                  Procuring Agency staffs participate as working members of the vendor teams.
                  The plan to complete the transfer of knowledge shall be documented by the
                  Contractor in a “System Support Transition Plan”. The plan will be approved by the
                  PMO. This plan shall include mandatory and suggested training - business, system,
                  and toolset – by role (e.g., DBA, business analyst, system developer) to complete the
                  formal transition of system support responsibility to the Procuring Agency. The plan
                  must also identify the estimated staff, by role, required to adequately support the
                  system long-term.
                  The Contractor shall also identify minimal training and experience requirements for
                  Procuring Agency staff prior to participating in ISD2R system project activities. The
                  minimal training and experience requirements, or requisite skills, for participation on
                  the technical planning and support team, application development team, and ongoing
                  production support team must be identified. Requisite skills for other areas for
                  Procuring Agency participation proposed by the Offeror should also be identified. A
                  “Requisite Skills Document” shall be provided by the Offeror two (2) months after
                  contract start.


       4.D.11.c   System/Service Enhancements
                  Enhancement requests, requests for new functionality and/or changes to the system,
                  as well as new services and/or changes to existing services will undoubtedly occur
                  throughout this project. This section is intended to facilitate the handling of these
                  requests so that only those with a solid business case can be efficiently incorporated
                  into the project.
                  The Procuring Agency requires that the Offeror provide a cost for 20,000 contractor
                  hours for system enhancements and services from the Offeror, above and beyond

Amendment 1                                                                                    Page 122

                 those contractually required by this RFP, during the development and implementation
                 period. Actual funding for enhancements will be at the Procuring Agency’s
                 discretion, and there is no guarantee as to the level of funding for enhancements, if
                 any, available to the project. Costs must be provided in Binder #7 – Cost Proposal,
                 using the forms in Appendix E., “Proposal Cost Response Forms”.
                 Additionally, the Procuring Agency requires that the Offeror provide a cost for an
                 additional 20,000 contractor hours for system enhancements and services during
                 Ongoing Production Support. All enhancements must be warranted for one year.
                 Actual funding for enhancements will be at the Procuring Agency’s discretion, and
                 there is no guarantee as to the level of funding for enhancements, if any, available to
                 the project. Costs must be provided in Binder #7 – Cost Proposal, using the forms in
                 Appendix E, “Proposal Cost Response Forms”.
                 The Offeror must propose one year of maintenance and operations, support during
                 post implementation.
                 Enhancement requests will go through a rigorous review process established by the
                 PMO before being submitted to the Offeror for impact assessment and estimates.
                 This process will serve to weed out requests for which there is no funding, as well as
                 requests lacking an obvious business case. A limited amount of Offeror time may be
                 required in this review process to provide a cursory review of the request.
                 The requests considered potentially viable will be passed to the Offeror for impact
                 assessment (i.e., impact on existing plans and estimates). Requests may be
                 considered for inclusion in an existing release, for a future planned release, or
                 bundled for an entirely new release. Requests for impact assessment and estimates
                 may be made on an individual (request by request) basis or on a “group of requests”
                 basis.
                 Enhancements must not impact the schedule, service level, or cost of the other
                 activities and tasks requested in this RFP without the express acknowledgement and
                 consent of the PMO.

              Although this is a pending final rule, it will become final during the terms of this RFP.
              Offerors shall provide a Statement of Concurrence that its proposed solution will comply
              with the proposed rule for obtaining enhance federal funding.
              Under sections 1903(a)(3)(A)(i) and 1903(a)(3)(B) of the Act, CMS is proposing
              standards and conditions that must be met by States in order for their Medicaid
              technology investments (including traditional claims processing systems, as well as
              eligibility systems) to be eligible for the enhanced match. These authorities provide that
              the enhanced FFP of 90 percent is not available unless the Secretary determines that a
              system is “likely to provide more efficient, economical, and effective administration of
              the plan” as described in section 1903(a)(3)(A)(i) of the Act. Similarly, section
              1903(a)(3)(B) of the Act specifies that enhanced FFP of 75 percent is not available for
              maintenance or operations unless the system is “of the type described in subparagraph
              (A)(i)” and is approved by the Secretary).
              Over the last 5 years CMS developed and implemented the Medicaid Information
              Technology Architecture (MITA). MITA is intended to foster integrated business and IT
              transformation across the Medicaid enterprise to improve the administration of the
              Medicaid program. (The Medicaid enterprise is comprised of the Federal government, the
              States, and any trading partners who exchange Medicaid transactions with either the
              States or the Federal government).
              CMS believes the MITA initiative has accelerated the pace of modernization and over
              time, this effort will drive States' systems toward a widespread network of technology
              and processes that support improved State administration of the Medicaid program, with
              a focus on streamlining and simplifying the enrollment process, and improving health
              outcomes and administrative procedures for Medicaid beneficiaries.
              The MITA initiative began in 2005 with the concept of moving the design and
              development of Medicaid information systems away from the siloed, sub-system
              components that comprise a typical MMIS and moving to a Service Oriented
              Architecture (SOA) method of designing Medicaid information systems using discretely
              identified and described business services to drive system requirements. The MITA
              initiative uses an architecture framework—business, technical, and information—along
              with a business maturity model and process and planning guidelines, to provide a
              framework for the planned use of technology and infrastructure to meet the changing
              business needs of Medicaid programs. MITA enables all State Medicaid enterprises to
              meet common objectives within the Framework, while still supporting local needs unique
              to one particular State.
              All MITA framework documents are available to the public at
              http://www.cms.gov/MedicaidInfoTechArch/. The MITA Framework describes the
              maturity model, policies, and procedures.
              CMS knows that there is not a “one size fits all” technology solution to every business
              challenge and recognizes that each technology investment must be viewed in light of
              existing, interrelated assets and their maturity. CMS also recognizes that there are trade-
              offs concerning schedules, costs, risks, business goals, and other factors that should be
              considered when making technology investments. However, CMS wishes to ensure that
              enhanced FFP is approved only when infrastructure and application projects maximize

Human Services Department                                                RFP #: 10-630-00-17771

              the extent to which they utilize current technology development and deployment
              practices and produce reliable business outputs and outcomes.
              CMS is proposing to define MITA at § 433.111(c) in this rule and proposes to build on
              the work of MITA by codifying that enhanced FFP (either at the 90 percent rate for
              design, development, installation or enhancement; or at the 75 percent rate for
              maintenance and operations) is only available when certain standards and conditions are
              met. Specifically, CMS articulates a set of standards and conditions that States must
              commit to in order to receive enhanced FFP:
                  1. Use of a modular, flexible approach to systems development, including the use of
                     open interfaces and exposed application programming interfaces; the separation
                     of business rules from core programming; and the availability of business rules in
                     both human and machine readable formats. CMS believes that this commitment
                     is extremely important in order to ensure that States can more easily change and
                     maintain systems, as well as integrate and interoperate with a clinical and
                     administrative ecosystem designed to deliver person- and citizen-centric services
                     and benefits.
                  2. Align to and advance increasingly in MITA maturity for business, architecture,
                     and data. CMS expects to see States continuing to make measurable progress in
                     implementing their MITA roadmaps. Already the MITA investment by Federal,
                     State, and private partners have allowed CMS to make important incremental
                     improvements to share data and reuse business models, applications and
                     components. However, it is critical to build on and accelerate the modernization
                     Federal, State, and private partners have collectively begun under MITA, so that
                     States achieve the final vision of MITA and have a comprehensive framework
                     with which to meet the technical and business demands required by an
                     environment that will increasingly rely on health information technology and the
                     electronic exchange of healthcare information to improve health outcomes and
                     lower program costs.
                  3. Ensure alignment with, and incorporation of, industry standards: the Health
                     Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 security, privacy and
                     transaction standards; accessibility standards established under section 508 of the
                     Rehabilitation Act, or standards that provide greater accessibility for individuals
                     with disabilities, and compliance with Federal civil rights laws; standards
                     adopted by the Secretary under section 1104 of the Affordable Care Act; and
                     standards and protocols adopted by the Secretary under section 1561 of the
                     Affordable Care Act. Show citation box
              CMS must ensure that Medicaid technology investments are made both to ensure the
              timely and reliable adoption of industry standards and to make most productive use of
              those standards as they become available. Use of industry standards promotes reuse, data
              exchange, and reduces administrative burden on patients, providers, and applicants. CMS
              will communicate applicable standards to States. Standards would be updated
              periodically to ensure conformance with the standards in the industry. States would be
              required to update systems and practices to adhere to evolving industry standards in order
              to remain eligible for enhanced FFP. Use of standards to promote accessibility for
              individuals with disabilities ensures that Medicaid technology investments would be
              equally effective in providing access to benefits and services for all users, and would
              comply with Federal civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination against individuals with

              disabilities, such as section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans
              with Disabilities Act.
                  4. Promote sharing, leverage, and reuse of Medicaid technologies and systems
                     within and among States. CMS will examine APDs to ensure that States make
                     appropriate use and reuse of components and technologies available off the shelf
                     or with minimal customization to maximize return on investment and minimize
                     project risk. CMS intends to work with States to identify promising State systems
                     that can be leveraged and used by other States. CMS anticipates that it would be
                     able to expedite review of APDs incorporating such successful models. Further,
                     CMS strongly encourages States to move to regional or multi-State solutions as
                     often as possible, and would help facilitate collaboration and communication
                     among States. CMS would also scrutinize carefully any proposed investments in
                     sub-State systems when asked to share in the costs of updating or maintaining
                     multiple systems performing essentially the same functions within the same
                     State.
                  5. Support accurate and timely processing of claims (including claims of
                     eligibility), adjudications, and effective communications with providers,
                     beneficiaries, and the public. Ultimately, the test of an effective and efficient
                     system is whether it supports and enables an effective and efficient business
                     process, producing and effectively communicating intended operational results
                     with a high degree of reliability and accuracy. CMS does not believe that it
                     would be appropriate for it to provide enhanced Federal funding for systems that
                     are unable to support desired business outcomes.
                  6. Produce transaction data, reports, and performance information that would
                     contribute to program evaluation, continuous improvement in business
                     operations, and transparency and accountability. Systems should be able to
                     electronically and accurately produce and expose data necessary for oversight,
                     administration, evaluation, integrity, and transparency. This includes program
                     data on claims, expenditures, and enrolled individuals; participation in waivers
                     and plans; performance data, such as processing times, accuracy, and appeal
                     results; and traditional systems standards such as availability and down time.
              CMS will develop a range of data and performance metrics on which States would be
              required to report on a regular basis, as a condition of receiving ongoing enhanced FFP
              for maintenance and operation.
                  7. Ensure seamless coordination and integration with the Exchange(whether run by
                     the State or Federal government), and allow interoperability with health
                     information exchanges, public health agencies, human services programs, and
                     community organizations providing outreach and enrollment assistance services.
              CMS expects that a key outcome of its technology investments is a much higher degree
              of interaction and interoperability in order to maximize value and minimize burden and
              costs on providers and beneficiaries. Additionally, CMS expects that technology
              investments must comply with standards to ensure security and accessibility consistent
              with current Federal law and investments must comply with the requirements under
              existing Federal civil rights protections for all individuals in developing the system
              architecture.

TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE
ARCHITECTURE
1.    The system shall be an n-tier architecture that supports         M
      flexibility by separating a software application into tiers or
      layers that are architecturally independent of other layers.
      The minimum set of tiers shall include presentation, business
      logic, and database.
2.    The system shall employ Service Oriented Architecture            M
      applications and concepts where practical and appropriate.
3.    The system shall employ Medicaid Information Technology          M
      Architecture (MITA) and concepts where practical and
      appropriate.
4.    The system shall be able to comply with enterprise               M
      application SOA Standards pre-approved by Procuring
      Agency.
5.    The system shall support implementation of each tier on M
      separate systems, with firewall rules restricting traffic
      between tiers. Communication between tiers shall use
      well defined [http://www.iana.org/assignments/port-
      numbers] ports and/or configurable ports, so that
      firewall rules can be established without opening large
      port ranges.
6.    The system shall be deployed primarily as a web-based M
      interface, so that users only need a web browser to access the
      system. If any components require software in addition to a
      web browser, that addition software shall have a minimal
      footprint on the user system.
7.    The system shall assure that third party software for ancillary M
      aspects of solution that require distribution or maintenance to
      remote desktops or servers shall be capable of being
      distributed and configured on customer from a central site
      and not require onsite intervention. In other words software
      shall support “silent" or unattended installation functionality
      for any non-web based features.

debarment by any Federal department or Agency. The Contractor shall make such disclosures available
to the Procuring Agency when it requests sub-contractor approval from the HSD. If the sub-contractor, or

        Congress, an officer or employee of Congress, or an employee of a member of Confess in
        connection with this federal grantor o cooperative agreement, the undersigned shall complete and
        submit Standard Form – LLL, “Disclosure Form to Report Lobbying,” in accordance with its

       documents for all sub-awards at all tiers (including sub-grants, contracts under grants and
       cooperative agreements, and subcontracts) and that all sub-recipients shall certify and disclose

ARTICLE 41 – Americans with Disabilities Act
This Act (28 CFR Part 35, Title II, Subtitle A) prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in all
services, programs, and activities provided to the public by State and local governments, except public
transportation services.


ARTICLE 42 – Drug Free Workplace Statement
The Federal government implemented the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 in an attempt to address the
problems of drug abuse on the job. It is a fact that employees who use drugs have less productivity, a
lower quality of work, and a higher absenteeism, and are more likely to misappropriate funds or services.
From this perspective, the drug abuser may endanger other employees, the public at large, or themselves.
Damage to property, whether owned by this entity or not, could result from drug abuse on the job. All
these actions might undermine public confidence in the services this entity provides. Therefore, in order
to remain a responsible source for government contracts, the following guidelines have been adopted:
    1. The unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession or use of a controlled
       substance is prohibited in the work place.
    2. Violators may be terminated or requested to seek counseling from an approved rehabilitation
       service.
    3. Employees must notify their employer of any conviction of a criminal drug statue no later than
       five days after such conviction.
    4. Although alcohol is not a controlled substance, it is nonetheless a drug. It is the policy of the
       Arkansas Department of Health WIC Program that abuse of this drug will also not be tolerated in
       the workplace.
    5. Contractors of federal agencies are required to certify that they will provide drug-free workplaces
       for their employees.


ARTICLE 43 – The federal government reserves a royalty-free, non-exclusive, and irrevocable license to
reproduce, publish, or otherwise use, and to authorize others to use, for federal government purposes, the
copyright in any work developed in whole or in part under a grant, sub-grant, or contract under a grant or
sub-grant including any rights of copyright to which a contractor purchases ownership.

EXHIBIT B – EXAMPLE DELIVERABLE SUBMISSION AND REVIEW PROCESS
             To be completed during contract negotiations


The following Deliverable review process is subject to Section 4 of the Contract. Pursuant to such section
of the Contract, all Deliverable reviews are for the purpose of determining whether each such Deliverable
substantially meets Contract specifications.

Once the detailed project plan is approved by the Procuring Agency, the following sections detail the
process for submission and review of Deliverables during the life of the project/Contract.

1. General

        a. When submitting a Deliverable for review and acceptance, the Contractor shall produce one
           (1) master (both soft and hard copy, where applicable) and two (2) additional hard copies, if
           requested and where applicable, to the Procuring Agency Project Manager as identified in the
           Contract.

        b. Once a Deliverable is approved and accepted by the Procuring Agency, the Contractor shall
           provide a final updated and corrected electronic copy. The Procuring Agency may, at its
           discretion, waive this requirement for a particular Deliverable.

          or provided by the Contractor.

       d. Deliverables will be evaluated by the Procuring Agency under Quality Assurance.

   2. Deliverable Submission

       a. Prior to development and submission of each Contract Deliverable, the Contractor will
          submit a Deliverables Expectation Document (“DED”) containing a description of the format
          and content of each Deliverable will be delivered to the Procuring Agency Project Manager
          for review and approval. The DED shall contain, at a minimum, the following:

               1)        Cover letter outlining the purpose of the Deliverable;

               1)        A Table of Contents with a brief description of the content of each section;

               2)        Anticipated number of pages; and

               3)        Identification of anticipated appendices/exhibits.

               4)        The DED shall contain an approval/rejection section that can be completed by the
                         Procuring Agency. The DED will be returned to the Contractor within a
                         mutually agreed upon time frame.

       b. Deliverables shall be developed by the Contractor according to the approved format and
          content of the DED for each specific Deliverable. The DED is not an amendment of the
          Agreement, but is a roadmap for production of the Deliverable.

       c. At a mutually agreed to meeting, on or before the time of delivery to the Procuring Agency,
          the Contractor shall schedule and provide a walkthrough of each Deliverable to be presented.

       d. Deliverables shall be submitted no later than 5:00 PM, per the approved Contract Deliverable
          schedule and shall be accompanied by a Deliverable sign-off form with the appropriate
          sections completed by the Contractor.

6.L. APPENDIX L – SUSPENSION AND DEBARMENT REQUIREMENT

CERTIFICATION REGARDING DEBARMENT, SUSPENSION, PROPOSED DEBARMENT, AND
OTHER RESPONSIBILITY MATTERS

The entering of a Contract between HSD and the successful Offeror pursuant to this RFP is a “covered
transaction,” as defined by 45 C.F.R. Part 76. HSD’s Contract with the successor Offeror shall contain a
provision relating to debarment, suspension, and responsibility substantially in the form contained in
Article 33 of Appendix L. All Offerors shall provide as a part of their proposals a certification to HSD in
the form provided below. Failure of an Offeror to furnish a certification or provide such additional
information as requested by the Procurement Manager for this RFP will render the Offeror non-
responsible. Furthermore, the Offeror shall provide immediate written notice to the Procurement
Manager for this RFP if, at any time prior to Contract award, the Offeror learns that its certification was
erroneous when submitted or has become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances.

Although HSD may review the veracity of the certification through the use of the federal Excluded Parties
Listing System or by other means, the certification provided by the Offeror in paragraph (a), below, is a
material representation of fact upon which HSD will rely when making a Contract award. If it is later
determined that the Offeror knowingly rendered an erroneous certification, in addition to other remedies
available to HSD, HSD may terminate the Contract resulting from this request for proposals for default.

The certification provided by the Offeror in paragraph (a), below, will be considered in connection with a
Determination of the Offeror's responsibility. A certification that any of the items in paragraph (a),
below, exists may result in rejection of the Offeror’s proposal for non-responsibility and the withholding
of an award under this RFP. If the Offeror’s certification indicates that that any of the items in paragraph
(a), below, exists, the Offeror shall provide with its proposal a full written explanation of the specific
basis for, and circumstances connected to, the item; the Offeror’s failure to provide such explanation will
result in rejection of the Offeror’s proposal. If the Offeror’s certification indicates that that any of the
items in paragraph (a), below, exists, HSD, in its sole discretion, may request, that the U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services grant an exception under 45 C.F.R. §§ 76.120 and 76.305 if HSD believes
that the procurement schedule so permits and an exception is applicable and warranted under the
circumstances. In no event will HSD award a Contract to an Offeror if the requested exception is not
granted for the Offeror.

(1) By signing and submitting a proposal in response to this RFP, the Offeror certifies, to the best of its
knowledge and belief, that:

(i) The Offeror and/or any of its Principals-
(A)      Are     are not    presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible
for the award of Contracts by any Federal department or Agency;
(B)      Have      have not     , within a three-year period preceding the date of the Offeror’s proposal,
been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal
offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a public (Federal, state, or local)
Contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or state antitrust statutes relating to the submission of Offers;
or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making
false Statements, tax evasion, or receiving stolen property;

governmental entity (Federal, State or local) with, commission of any of the offenses enumerated in
paragraph (a) (1) (i) (B) of this certification;
(D)     Have       have not , within a three-year period preceding the date of Offeror’s proposal, had
one or more public agreements or transactions (Federal, State or local) terminated for cause or default;
and
(E)     Have       have not      been excluded from participation from Medicare, Medicaid or other federal
health care programs pursuant to Title XI of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. § 1320a-7.

(ii) "Principal," for the purposes of this certification, shall have the meaning set forth in 45 C.F.R. §
76.995 and shall include an officer, director; owner, partner, principal investigator, or other person having
management or supervisory responsibilities related to a covered transaction. “Principal” also includes a
consultant or other person, whether or not employed by the participant or paid with Federal funds, who: is
in a position to handle Federal funds; is in a position to influence or control the use of those funds; or
occupies a technical or professional position capable of substantially influencing the development or
outcome of an activity required to perform the covered transaction.

(iii) For the purposes of this certification, the terms used in the certification, such as covered transaction,
debarred, excluded, exclusion, ineligible, ineligibility, participant, and person have the meanings set forth
in the definitions and coverage rules of 45 C.F.R. Part 76.

(iv) Nothing contained in the foregoing certification shall be construed to require establishment of a
system of records in order to render, in good faith, the certification required by paragraph (a) of this
provision. The knowledge and information of an Offeror is not required to exceed that which is normally
possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings.

1. Introduction
1.1 Purpose and Scope
The purpose of this document is to assist states as they design, develop, implement, and operate
technology and systems projects in support of the Affordable Care Act relating to the establishment
and operation of Health Insurance Exchanges as well as coverage expansions and improvements
under Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and premium tax credits and
cost-sharing reductions under the Affordable Care Act. This guidance seeks to help states achieve
the necessary degree of interoperability between IT components in the federal and state entities that
work together to provide health insurance coverage through the Exchange, Medicaid or CHIP
programs. IT systems should be simple and seamless in identifying people who qualify for tax
credits, cost-sharing reductions, Medicaid, and CHIP.

Starting in 2014, Exchanges will help individuals and small employers shop for, select and pay for
high-quality, affordable private health plans that fit their individual needs at competitive prices. By
providing a place for one-stop shopping, Exchanges will make purchasing health insurance easier
and more understandable. As with other industries, having a sophisticated, consumer-friendly IT
infrastructure will be critical to success.

This Guidance for Exchange and Medicaid IT Systems, Version 1.0 (hereafter referred to as IT
Guidance), will be iterative, updated, and expanded over time. Version 1.0 establishes a framework
and approach for developing IT systems, focusing primarily on those components and functions that
are the subject of the Exchange IT Grant Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the
Office of Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (OCIIO) on October 29, 2010, and the
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Federal Funding for Medicaid Eligibility Determination and
Enrollment Activities displayed in the Federal Register on November 3, 2010. (Additional
rulemaking will occur in 2011 and beyond.) If, in establishing final policies via rulemaking, the
framework and approach for developing IT systems is revised, this guidance will be revised as well.
This IT Guidance is a joint issuance of OCIIO and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
(CMS).

In the future, we expect to expand, as well as deepen, our discussion of the subjects addressed in
Version 1.0. Further guidance will be based on best IT practices, future policy decisions and
regulations; ongoing feedback from states, vendors, and other stakeholders; lessons learned from
early IT development projects; and further development and evolution of standards. States receiving
funding under a Cooperative Agreement for Exchange development or under an Advance Planning
Document (APD) under Medicaid for eligibility system development should pay close attention to
and comply with this guidance. To ensure that they remain on target with their IT development
projects, these states must review and comply with this guidance and well as review future iterations
carefully. Although OCIIO and CMS will use additional avenues for communication and guidance
to assist and oversee states as they request and utilize federal funds for Exchanges and Medicaid IT
development, this document and its future iterations, including any iterations that incorporate final
policies described in any Final Rule, should be considered a critical source of information to states.
OCIIO and CMS will use this guidance in reviewing state applications for funding under Exchange
grants and federal match under Medicaid.

The IT Guidance provides national direction on how IT systems should support and enable business

operations and the processes for health care coverage through Exchanges and Medicaid as required
by the Affordable Care Act. We do not intend to impose a single IT solution on individual states and
will actively ensure the development of solutions and approaches that will work in all states to meet
key business objectives. The way in which states choose to construct and assemble the components
necessary to create their Exchange, Medicaid and CHIP systems will vary depending on a number of
factors, including the level of maturity of current systems, current and planned governance and
business models, size, and other factors.



1.2 Collaborative IT Development Approach
Improving the availability of high-quality health care coverage to families and individuals will be
achieved through a collaborative, intensive partnership between CMS, OCIIO, and states responsible
for implementation of the Exchanges and Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid and CHIP provisions.
This collaboration must occur within states (between the Exchanges and Medicaid, and CHIP as well
as stakeholders more generally). We further encourage states to work together and with federal
agencies to develop and deploy shared services to minimize the expense and reduce the risks
associated with individual state, end-to-end IT development and implementation. This collaboration
must also occur within the Federal government to ensure effective and efficient data exchange
between the health system and sources of authoritative data for such elements as income, citizenship
and immigration status. Finally, a high degree of collaboration must occur between the private and
public sectors to ensure appropriate coverage and financial support for employers and employees.

We intend to promote and foster the development of IT components and models that will drive the
delivery of intended business results. We will promote standards and foster the development of
shared business process models, requirements, specifications, technical architecture, and
programming to the maximum extent feasible. We also intend to communicate and provide access
to, at the earliest possible point, those IT capabilities or components developed and maintained at the
Federal level on which the states will rely. We expect that, in this highly collaborative atmosphere,
the best and most efficient solutions will emerge from the efforts of private-sector vendors, business
partners, and governmental projects funded at both the state and federal levels. Because of the
demanding timelines for development, testing, deployment, and operation of IT systems for
Exchanges and Medicaid agencies to extend coverage as required by the Affordable Care Act, we
want to support and identify those promising solutions early in the their life cycle. We also want to
ensure that state development approaches are sufficiently flexible to integrate successful components
as they become available.


1.3 Document Organization

coordinating between sources of funding for responsibilities shared among Exchanges, Medicaid and
CHIP.

Section 5, Technical Architecture. Identifies initial standards and high-level architectural guidance
for use in implementing provisions of the Affordable Care Act relating to Exchanges, Medicaid and
CHIP.


2. Governance
This IT Guidance provides guidance to States on the implementation of expanded health insurance
coverage under Exchanges, Medicaid, and CHIP.

This IT Guidance is the product of a joint development and review process within the U.S.
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), involving both OCIIO and CMS. It is envisioned
that the IT Guidance and the health insurance Exchange core functions will be governed through a
System Development Life Cycle (SDLC)-type model that includes life-cycle phases and transition
stage gate reviews for such items as business service descriptions/definitions, requirements
specifications, system design specifications, data models, interface control documents, and
integration test cases.

Future versions of this IT Guidance will be developed with additional input from and consultation
with the states. States are invited to provide comments and ask questions relating to this guidance by
contacting either OCIIO or CMS.

This IT Guidance will not supplant or override statutory or regulatory direction or requirements
previously established by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. States who plan or
implement IT systems under the Affordable Care Act should consult existing law, regulations, and
policy guidance as well as this document.


3. Business Architecture
We expect IT systems to support a first-class customer experience, as well as seamless coordination
between the Medicaid and CHIP programs and the Exchanges and between the Exchanges and plans,
employers, and navigators. We also expect these systems to generate robust data in support of
program evaluation efforts and ongoing improvements in program delivery and outcomes. In
addition to reviewing the statutory requirements contained in the Affordable Care Act, states should
use the following assumptions and goals in their IT roadmaps:

      States should aim to provide the same customer experience to all individuals seeking
       coverage, regardless of source or amount of financial assistance for which they may qualify
       or whether they enter the process through the Exchange, Medicaid, or CHIP. States should
       aim to make it easy for individuals to explore information on their health coverage options,
       and should quickly and accurately enroll individuals into coverage.
      For most people, this routing and enrollment in the Exchange, Medicaid or CHIP will happen
       in real time. Some people may experience discrepancies between the information they
       provide and the information obtained through authoritative sources, which affects their

Income Support Division                                   ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

       eligibility. For those individuals, we expect a timely and responsive resolution process as
       required by the Affordable Care Act. Other individuals may seek a specific determination by
       Medicaid (because of disability, for example), that may require more information and
       processing time.
      Customers should experience this process as representing the highest level of service,
       support, and ease of use, similar to that experienced by customers of leading service and
       retail companies and organizations doing business in the United States.

      States should aim to replicate this customer experience with other stakeholders and business
       partners, including plans, employers, and navigators.
      Most individuals will be evaluated for eligibility in the Exchange, Medicaid and CHIP using
       a coordinated set of rules; as a result, we expect common systems and high levels of
       integration to avoid duplication of costs, processes, data, and effort on the part of either the
       state or the beneficiary. Such systems will support Exchanges as they execute
       responsibilities for Medicaid and CHIP eligibility determinations and Medicaid and CHIP
       agencies that interact with Exchange-eligible individuals.
      For the purposes of the Affordable Care Act, HHS is developing a Federal approach to
       verification from Federal agencies such as the Internal Revenue Service, so states will not
       have to independently establish their own interfaces and connections.
      IT systems should be able to generate data in support of performance management, public
       transparency, policy analysis, and program evaluation.

4. Cost Allocation
The high degree of interaction and seamlessness required particularly between Exchanges, Medicaid
and CHIP necessitates highly integrated systems. There are, at present, opportunities for significant
leverage between Exchanges and Medicaid. As described below, States should use cost allocation
appropriately (in accordance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-87),
between the federal grants made available for Exchanges under the Affordable Care Act and federal
match available through Medicaid or other federal programs for IT support.

Federal grant funding made available to Exchanges under the Affordable Care Act cannot be used as
the state share for claiming federal matching funds.

States will need to allocate the costs of their IT systems proposals, considering OMB Circular A-87,
between the Exchanges and Medicaid for those activities in which Medicaid programs are likely to
benefit. Cost allocation with CHIP programs may also be needed. Some of the functions that we
anticipate will need cost-allocation include but may not be limited to eligibility, enrollment, and
possibly, consumer assistance. The administration of Exchanges and qualified health plans are
examples where it might be less likely that costs must be allocated between the two sources of
funding.

5. Technical Architecture
5.1 Standards
Standards help achieve and sustain secure interoperability among state and federal health programs
and with providers and community organizations delivering care and promoting and organizing
access to coverage and benefits. It is our intent to ensure that any IT system development projects
supported through Exchanges, Medicaid or CHIP funding comply to the fullest extent possible with
standards in wide use within the U.S. health system and with standards endorsed or adopted by the
Secretary of Health and Human Services. These include Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) transaction standards, standards and protocols adopted by the
Secretary pursuant to Sections 1104 and 1561 of Affordable Care Act, standards to ensure
accessibility as well as security and privacy standards consistent with federal law. The following
paragraphs provide information relating to these and other standards.

5.1.1 HIPAA Transaction Standards
To improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the health care system, HIPAA included
administrative simplification provisions that required HHS to adopt national standards for electronic
health care transactions and code sets, unique employee and provider identifiers, and protection of
security and privacy. IT projects undertaken by states in support of the Affordable Care Act should
comply with all relevant HIPAA standards, including protection of personal health information.

5.1.2 Additional Transaction Standards in the Affordable Care Act
Section 1104 of the Affordable Care Act requires HHS to adopt a single set of operating rules for
each HIPAA transaction. Section 1561 of the Act calls upon the Secretary, in consultation with the
HIT Policy Committee and the HIT Standards Committee, to develop interoperable and secure
standards and protocols for enrollment. These standards were approved by Secretary Sebelius on
September             17th,           2010         and          are            accessible         at:
http://healthit.hhs.gov/portal/server.pt?open=512&mode=2&objID=3161.            One of the chief
recommendations from the Committees is that states collaborate using the National Information
Exchange Model (NIEM) and unified form to facilitate the enrollment process and common data
exchange.
Any additional standards, protocols, or approaches adopted by the Secretary pursuant to these two
sections of the Affordable Care Act should be considered and integrated into the IT development life
cycle undertaken by states.

5.1.3 Standards for Accessibility
Enrollment and eligibility systems should be designed to meet the diverse needs of users (e.g.,
consumers, state personnel, other third-party assisters) without barriers or diminished function or
quality.

Systems shall include usability features or functions that accommodate the needs of persons with
disabilities, including those who use assistive technology. State enrollment and eligibility systems
are subject to the program accessibility provisions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, which
include an obligation to provide individuals with disabilities an equal and effective opportunity to
benefit from or participate in a program, including those offered through electronic and information
technology. At this time, the Department will consider a recipient’s websites, interactive kiosks, and

Income Support Division                                    ISD2 SYSTEM REPLACEMENT PROJECT

other information systems addressed by Section 508 Standards as being in compliance with Section
504 if such technologies meet those Standards. We encourage states to follow either the 508
guidelines or guidelines that provider greater accessibility to individuals with disabilities. States may
wish to consult the latest Section 508 guidelines issued by the US Access Board or W3C’s Web
Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0
        (see http://www.access-board.gov/sec508/guide/index.htm).
States should also take reasonable steps to provide meaningful access by persons with limited
English proficiency.

5.1.4 Security and Privacy
Information systems containing individually identifiable information and/or protected health
information (PHI) are required to implement adequate protections to ensure the protection of
sensitive data. The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules specify privacy and security requirements
that HIPAA covered entities must follow. In designing their information systems, agencies should
also be aware of State laws that impose additional restrictions on the sharing of sensitive health
information.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has published a series of documents that
provide guidance to Chief Information Security Officers (CISO). While the NIST special
publications on security are compulsory only at the federal level, the special publications can serve as
useful guidance to non-federal agency CISOs in the implementation of a security program aimed at
the protection of both individually identifiable information and PHI.

See the link to NIST’s special publications: http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsSPs.html;
additionally, a guide to implementing the HIPAA Security Rule can be found at:
        http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/PubsFIPS.html

Finally, information systems containing tax return information must comply with the taxpayer
privacy and safeguards requirements of Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code.

5.1.5 Other Standards
Under the Information Technology Management Reform Act (Public Law 104-106), the Secretary of
Commerce approves standards and guidelines developed by NIST for federal computer systems that
extend beyond security and privacy. IT development projects should consider and apply NIST
standards as appropriate.


5.2 Architecture Guidance
This subsection provides initial, broad guidance for developing IT system architectures that support
the Health Insurance Exchanges and Medicaid and CHIP provisions contained in the Affordable Care
Act. Over time, the depth and breadth of these architectural standards will expand, providing
technical reference architectural guidance for secure and interoperable IT health care solutions to
support Exchanges and Medicaid as required by the Affordable Care Act.

Systems developed or enhanced to support functions of the Exchange should adhere to the following
architectural principles when possible.

5.2.1 System Integration
      Provide high-level integration of process flow and information flow with such business
       partners as navigator, health plans, small businesses, brokers, employers, and others.

      Apply a modular, flexible approach to systems development, including the use of open
