Child Support Enforcement System Replacement IV&V Services for Nevada

SLI is providing semi-annual IV&V reviews of Nevada's Child Support Enforcement NVKIDS project. The SLI IV&V team is conducting reviews of the technical and functional aspects of the development effort. The results of these reviews are provided directly to OCSE at the same time they are delivered to the State's IV&V Contract Officer.

SLI’s contract is providing Nevada’s Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Division of Welfare and Support Services (DWSS) and the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) with assessments of the quality and risks associated with replacing the Nevada Operations of Multi-Automated Data System (known as NOMADS).  NOMADS is a system based on outdated technology that is inflexible, costly to maintain, and difficult to modify.

Throughout the replacement project, SLI identifies high-risk areas early; provides State management and the Federal government an objective analysis to address system development issues and to make informed decisions; provides management with improved and objective visibility into the progress and quality of the development effort; and helps to reduce errors in delivered products and increase probability of project success. The assessments include verification and validation that project management, software development, training, and testing is done in such a manner that the delivered system meets the functional and technical requirements of the State and federal government.  SLI’s IV&V team reports their findings and recommendations simultaneously to officials at the State of Nevada and OCSE providing completely independent assessments as well as transparency of the project’s health to all parties.
