U.S. Department of the Interior / Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement
Project: The Coal Fee Management and Collection System (CFMCS) was developed by DSG to replace three legacy business applications (Citations, Audits, and Fee Collection). DSG evaluated multiple COTS and GOTS products performing gap analysis, examining life cycle costs, conducting cost benefit analysis, comparing technologies, development tool sets, and resource requirements. DSG recommended Microsoft Dynamics SL/SQL Server database as the best fit solution. Recommendation accepted, DSG successfully migrated the three legacy applications onto the new platform on a Firm Fixed Price (FFP) award. The solution met all of the original design objectives, reduced processing times, streamlined business processes, allowed agency reductions in functional staffing of 26%, and reduced O&M costs by 48%.
