CSS was recently awarded a $6.2 Million 5 year Task Order with the State of Maryland under our CATS+ Master Contract. This Task Order was set-a-side for small businesses under the State’s Small Business Reserve (SBR) Program. The purpose of this work effort is to support system development life cycle activities, including requirements specification and development of acquisition documents for products and services, as required to modernize Maryland’s Enterprise Budget System (EBS) capabilities. Specifically, Team CSS is providing personnel who apply appropriate skills, beginning with Technical Project Management, to complete data and operational requirements, and support development of EBS-related requests for proposals and supporting acquisition documents. Team CSS will augment services to include Functional Project Management; Quality Assurance Management; Project Administration; Data and Systems Architecture; Financial Systems Analysis; Personnel Systems Analysis; Technical Writing; and Implementation Planning through a formally coordinated Work Order process at the request of the State. This work includes interacting with State Agencies to capture their requirements, gathering lessons learned from other States who have implemented similar systems, and supporting market capability and implementation best-practices research.
This is CSS’s first contract as a Master contractor under the State of Maryland’s Consulting and Technical Services+ (CATS+) Master Contract. The objective of this Master Contract, effective April 22, 2013 through April 21, 2028, is to enable State government to procure IT consulting and technical services in a timely and economical manner. Through CATS+, the State has a flexible means of obtaining information technology (IT) resources quickly, efficiently and cost effectively by issuing task orders specific to its needs.
