Florida Department of Transportation

Information Resource Request

Replacement of the existing Information Resource Request (IRR) application with a new Technology Request System (TRS) application to be implemented in the .NET / Oracle environment. The TRS application is a technology refresh and enhancement project that moved the IRR System from a Lotus Notes environment to the Enterprise .NET environment.

Electronic Review Comments  

CTC development staff exceeded expectations in delivering the Electronic Review Comments (ERC) system for FDOT, supplying it before the requirement deadline. ERC is an application used to track the entire review process (comments and responses) for plan reviews and project submittals in a database. All comments and responses reside in one location allowing any user easy access to all or partial review data on demand. The system allows Project Managers to easily track all comments and responses from all Reviewers and Consultants at any time during the process.

Notes Account Password Management Solution 

CTC deployed statewide the Notes Account Password Management (NAPM) application to assist with password recovery during FDOT’s migration process. By using existing code and knowledge of the infrastructure, CTC was able to save development time as well as the savings in the cost of an off-the-shelf solution. 

Solutions Converted from Domino to .NET 

CTC’s team members played an integral part in FDOT’s Lotus Notes to .NET migration efforts by providing the analysis, documentation, development, training and data conversion. Our experience and knowledge of the infrastructure and the application placed us in a unique position to provide tremendous cost savings during the migration. CTC’s services were used to convert the following applications:  FDOT Tracker, EPABS, and Software Distributions Notification Application (SDNA) and Quickr solutions. 

Technology Request System Solution 

CTC staff developed the Technology Request System (TRS), which established an enterprise-level system used to support the function of reviewing technology products and services brought into FDOT. The TRS serves as an umbrella for the eventual processing of different types of technology service requests. The TRS System allows for the review of information technology coming into FDOT (Hardware, Software and Services), exceptions to standard IT practices, and requests for supporting technology services provided through external support agencies. The work effort included:  

      •  Moving the functionality of the existing IRR Application from the Lotus Notes platform to Enterprise .NET.  
      • Making enhancements to improve usability, placing emphasis on the user experience of those that are requesting/inputting the technology request.  
      • Making enhancements based on feedback received from power user/key users.

The engagement was deliverable based with a substantial cost savings to the State of Florida.

      • Extensive data validation, 
      • Auto-save functionality which is executed when any data item is changed, 
      • Ad Hoc search engine that exports to Excel,

The solution provides a single location for all counties to come together to prepare and plan for recovery from a natural disaster with custom forms, calendars, contact lists, resource tracking and other internal business processes.   

Single Audit System

CTC developed the Single Audit System for the Inspector General’s Office of the Division of Emergency Management. This application was built in order to track the review process of statutorily mandated reports due to the division by vendors associated with the division. 

Access Control System

CTC developed the Access Control System to give the Security Manager the tools she needed to track the Access Control Forms utilized by the Division of Emergency Management. These forms were mission critical documentation that tracked what access each user had to each system under the division’s control.  

Florida Department of Law Enforcement

Engineered and implemented one of the largest private VPN networks in the country for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to meet FISMA requirements. It consisted of 800 remote locations using dynamic IPSec for end-to-end encryption.

Government of the Bahamas

Ministry of Finance Portal

The Ministry of Finance sought to enhance the manual correspondence process by automating the storage of documents and integrating the business workflow processes surrounding correspondence. To meet this need, CTC developed a Ministry of Finance Portal designed specifically to leverage existing technology.  CTC’s solution gave the Ministry of Finance the ability to manage and track correspondence effectively and remotely, as well as the capability of securing confidential documents without incurring significant infrastructure expense. The intranet portal component allowed commonly used applications to be surfaced in a single location and promoted a collaborative environment within the Ministry of Finance. 

Enterprise-wide SharePoint Collaboration Implementation

CTC was responsible for the development of the infrastructure, hardware and software, for the SharePoint rollout and provided Technical support and training, during the rollout and further provided transition training for the Information Technology staff.   

SharePoint Environment Deployment 

For the government of The Bahamas, CTC deployed a mid-sized SharePoint farm consisting of two Web servers, two workflow servers, two application servers, and a SQL cluster. The Primary server environment resides in the Data Center in Nassau, with a Warm Standby in the Secondary Data Center in Freeport.   The Farm was initially deployed in the Department of Inland Revenue to support the operation of each departmentNow, Ministries and Departments within the government are fully utilizing SharePoint for content management, collaboration and much more.  

Ministry of Public Works Payment Certificate System 

CTC developed the Payment Certificate System (PCS 2.0) for theMinistry of Public Works (MPW) to replace an Access-based system housed on local servers at the MPW.  The Bahamas MPW is responsible for maintaining and supporting all government infrastructure in terms of the physical plant, including roads, bridges, schools, and all government building maintenance. Most of the work is provided by contract services, so contract management is vital to the working of this Ministry. This project supported the payment to vendors for contracted services rendered. All contracts and contract payments are handled using the PCS 2.0.
