Information Technology (IT) Investment Fund Portfolio

Recognizing the increasingly critical role that Information Technology (IT) plays in the delivery of services to citizens, public and private organizations, and State employees, the Legislature has appropriated $63 million annually targeted for IT investment. The following provides a summary report of the projects in the IT Investment Fund portfolio. These projects include participation of not only DTMB-IT but also other State agencies. Some projects will be completed this fiscal year; others span several years. Some projects are funded solely by the IT Investment Fund; others involve funding from other sources. In our continuing effort to provide transparency to government activity and spending, the summary report allows viewers to "drill down" to more detailed project information by clicking on the project name. This information is updated on a bi-monthly basis.

CSS - MILogin Migrations from Legacy SSO
MILogin is an enterprise single sign-on and identity and access management solution which enables the State of Michigan (SOM) to establish, manage, and authenticate user identities for Web and Mobile SOM Information Technology (IT) systems. This solution is providing identity management and identity federation  (IDFED) capabilities in compliance with various Federal and State laws and regulations. MILogin utilizes robust Identity Proofing and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) capabilities to ensure secure access to sensitive and protected citizen’s information.

The SOM Legacy Single Sign-On (SSO) system will sunset on 9/30/2016.  Therefore, all SOM agencies will be required to migrate applications off current implementations of the Legacy SSO to the new MILogin solution in FY16.

Unified Portal-Enterprise Information Management (EIM)
EIM is an improved way of managing vast and valuable state information assets. In 2014 the initial EIM project established organizational processes and the framework necessary to implement a successful EIM program. In 2015 the project identified enterprise solutions, developed proofs of concept, and created actionable department-specific roadmaps. Current efforts focus on pilots, establishing single internet sign-on for citizens and businesses to access all state account information, and statewide implementation. All State departments are engaged and have identified a Chief Data Steward and a Privacy Officer. A Steering Committee of 12 departments is leading the effort.

DOS - Department of State
MDOS - QVF Refresh
The Qualified Voter File (QVF) system is a critical and public facing service that the MDOS Bureau of Elections provides to 83 County clerks and close to 1,000 local officials to continually track and update voter registration files for over 7 million voters and to support/administer all elections within the State of Michigan. The original QVF system was first developed and deployed in the late 1990s.  The objective of this project is to refresh the current architecture and software platform (Delphi) to a supported DTMB application standard and update the user interface. It is also to make sure that the current vendor support is a sustainable model for QVF system with its suite of applications such as QVF, QVF-GUI, QVF-Lite, E-Wizard, Street Index and Electronic Poll Book along with hardware and database components.

DTMB-SBO - State Budget Office
SBO - Project SIGMA
This project is the State of Michigan's Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) business process and software implementation, a major initiative focused on replacing Michigan's enterprise-wide financial systems. It involves the replacement of the Michigan Administrative Information Network Financial Administration and Control System (MAIN FACS), Data Collection Distribution System (DCDS), Mi Time and Expense (MiTES), Buy4Michigan, iTRAC and other Agency specific systems, improvements to the Business Objects system and the implementation of a technology enabled budget development solution. MAIN was implemented in 1994 and is considered an outdated system overdue for replacement. SIGMA will replace it with a modern, highly efficient, user friendly, and more effective system. SIGMA will bring significant improvements to a vast number of processes currently in use in virtually every aspect and segment of Michigan government.  These improvements will greatly enhance:

• Budget Preparation at all levels of State government

• The manner in which many State of Michigan employees perform specific job duties

• Financial reporting resources and capabilities

• The transparency of Michigan government financial operations due to improved reporting

• The process of interfacing with other systems that cannot be incorporated into SIGMA

The benefits realized with SIGMA will be many.  The State's budgeting, accounting and reporting processes will be based on current technology and capabilities, with upgrades available as needed for the foreseeable future.

MDHHS - Eligibility PMO
MDHHS - Medicaid Compliance Program (MCP)
This project is to develop real-time eligibility determination and enrollment systems for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Eligibility programs. The systems will be interoperable with existing core systems within the State of Michigan, and with other systems that may be needed in the future. This system will provide a simplified and coordinated eligibility determination solution. This includes the provider screening solution for Medicaid.

MDHHS - Medical Services Administration
The State of Michigan and the federal government have already invested substantial funding in building the ICD-10 infrastructure. $18.3 million gross (2.3 M GF/GP) was invested in FY14 along with $30.0 million gross ($3.0 million GF/GP) from FY13. Not providing the funding to optimize the system will put the significant original investment at risk.

Due to the federal delay of implementation until October, 2015, this proposal is to request funding to provide optimization services for ICD-10. This includes evaluating operational performance and provider code trends, providing outreach, transitioning activities, processing and implementing system change requests for post-Go-Live enhancements, and providing external end-to-end testing services for late adopters.

Some of the benefits of the ICD 10th revision codes are greater health care specificity, more detailed data for analysis and improved care management. In addition, Medicaid can more accurately pay for procedures based on specific diagnoses and the severity of the diagnosis. Electronic health records can also be used to better provide quality and performance measures.

The goal of this initiative is to rapidly deploy quantifiable user experience enhancements across the Michigan Treasury Online (MTO) application; the public facing portal for return filing and paying of Sales, Use, and Withholding (SUW) taxes.  Launched in January 2015, user satisfaction surveys have demonstrated a greater than 80% dissatisfaction with the online experience.

DTMB and Treasury have partnered to identify quick win opportunities to address the following most common concerns;

- requirement to maintain multiple sets of user credentials to register, file returns, and pay

- cumbersome nature of tax payer authenticating

- overall user friendliness of the application

TREA - E (TP-383) Business Tax Medical Marihuana
The TP-383 Business Tax Medical Marihuana project is to implement an automated process for collecting the Medical Marihuana Facilities (MMF) Excise Tax (3% excise tax on gross sales receipts) from provisioning centers in the State of MI using the existing Michigan Treasury Online (MTO) portal as the front end and SAP as the backend system.

The new MMF functionality will allow medical Marihuana facilities tax payers the ability to log in to MTO and submit their return and payment for the 3% excise tax.  This functionality will allow Treasury the ability to provide information to other state agencies monitoring the payment of the excise tax for delinquency.

Additionally, this project will contribute to the following Treasury objectives:

1. Mandate MTO for MMFs to file and pay their quarterly 3% excise tax

2. Increase the number of businesses registered for MTO

3. Increase the percentage of online filers

4. Increase positive responses to the MTO user surveys

5. Increase Treasury processing efficiencies
