Mississippi, Rhode Island, Maine Consortium Unemployment Insurance Modernization IV&V Services

SLI recently completed a full-time IV&V scope of work of MRM processes and products focused on the review of Project Management, Requirements Management, Architecture and Design Refactoring, Testing, and Data Migration.

The Mississippi, Rhode Island, and Maine (MRM) Unemployment Insurance (UI) Consortium in partnership with the Information Technology Support Center (ITSC) selected SLI Global Solutions to provide Independent Verification & Validation (IV&V) services for the MRM UI Modernization Project.  The MRM Project was a multi-state effort based upon refactoring Mississippi’s recently implemented UI Tax and Benefit system and enhancing it to accommodate the needs of Rhode Island and Maine.  The goal of this project was to leverage the investment of federal tax dollars in Mississippi to create a hosted solution that supported UI programs in other states without the costs and risks of developing a new system for each state. SLI conducted full-time IV&V of MRM processes and products to help identify and mitigate risks throughout the entire systems development lifecycle.  The SLI team focused on the review of Project Management, Requirements Management, Architecture and Design Refactoring, Testing, and Data Migration as the project moved through its development lifecycle.
