CSS is proud to have partnered with the State of Maryland and the larger Enterprise Budgeting System (EBS) Major Information Technology Development Project (MITDP) vendor team to bring the new Budget Analysis and Reporting System (BARS) to the state budgeting community from concept development through initial operating capability to current operations and maintenance stabilization.
CSS successfully completed a five (5) year task order to provide project management and technical staffing services related to the replacement of the State of Maryland’s legacy enterprise budgeting system. This MITDP was sponsored by the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and served the State budgeting community to include all Maryland executive agencies, higher education institutions, the Judiciary and the State Legislature. CSS developed and supported the EBS Program Management Office (PMO) with our team composed of technical and functional project managers as well as a data architect, a quality manager and an interface manager. CSS’s services spanned requirements elicitation and management, market research, acquisition support, automated life cycle tools administration, concept of operations development, agile practices adoption, process and deliverable audits, test strategy and support, stakeholder outreach and communications, application service desk support and cloud infrastructure and security liaison activities with the Department of Information Technology (DoIT).
