  Child Welfare System of services.
   – Owned by the California Department of Social Services
   – Office of System Integration is the CDSS Agent for the system; working with
     the vendor/consultant and DTS staff for maintenance and operations
   – Originally implemented in 1997, with continued development through final
     rollout in 1998
   – Result of Chapter 1294, Statutes of 1989, Senate Bill 370 requiring a
     statewide computer system to automate functions of child welfare offices.
   – Improves the lives of children and families by:
       • Providing social workers information to improve casework services, freeing
         them from repetitive tasks
       • Providing policy makers with information to design and manage services
       • Fulfilling State and Federal legislative intent.
   – Largest, single-state SACWIS (statewide automated child welfare
     information system) in the United States.
   – All 58 counties use CWS/CMS.
                                                    CUSTOMER FORUM

  application moved from IBM’s data center in Boulder, Colorado to DTS
  in Sacramento.

  computers maintained by DTS.

       Re-hosting Transition Project
Re-hosting Transition Project moved the technical
infrastructure from a vendor-owned site in Colorado to DTS
site in Sacramento. For this project, DTS was instrumental

included in IBM’s scope of work
• Completing in record time the procurement of all hardware,
software, and services with support by DOF and DGS
• Working collaboratively with IBM and OSI project staff for
completion of technical work
DTS contribution and involvement made it possible for the
cutover activities to be completed on time without incident
or disruption of service to end users.
