    ASSYST, Sterling, VA – October 2007: ASSYST has been contracted to provide management, subject matter expertise and technical services to the Department of Budget and Management, State of Maryland to modernize their personnel management system.  The three major components of the State Personnel Management System (SPMS) are (1) Personnel Management / Position Control System (PM/PC), (2) Employee Benefits System, and (3) Time Entry Management System.

     

    Other ancillary systems include Distributed Web Front-end Sub-System for Transaction Input / Validation / Approvals, Recruitment and Examination, Applicant Tracking, Eligible Candidates List, Performance Evaluation Program (PEP), Medical Director’s Drug Testing, Automated Increment and Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) processing, Annual EEO and Work Force Analysis Reports, and Legislative Reports.

     

    The PM/PC system is the main application in the SPMS. It maintains and updates approximately 80,000 employee records with information relating to salary adjustments, re-classifications, transfers, promotions, and other relevant data along with employment history. Most of the data updated in the PM/PC is forwarded to Central Payroll Bureau (CPB) to update payroll records.

     

    The Employee Benefits System known as the Benefits Application System (BAS) maintains the State of Maryland’s cafeteria-style health benefits program for active, retired and satellite State employees. The BAS manages over 110,000 active and retired employees’ health benefits that include six health care providers, two dental plans and a prescription plan. The main function of the BAS is to maintain current employee benefit records, add and remove employees and dependents, and provide health providers and CPB with bi-weekly updates of enrollment activity. DBM/OIT/ASM staff converts all health data to meet HIPAA compliance before data transmission. The BAS includes an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system, which allows employees and retirees to change their benefits during the annual open enrollment season.

    ASSYST , Sterling, VA – October 2007: ASSYST goes live with eCitation. The Electronic Citation Program of Maryland is a co-operative project of the District Court of Maryland, Maryland State Police, and Advanced Software Systems, Inc. (ASSYST). With e-Citation the State Police Department will have a technology solution to receive acknowledgement of receipt of the citation from drivers by scanning driving licenses and using an electronic signature or securing the traditional written signature.

     

    ASSYST has been working closely with the District Court of Maryland and Maryland State Police to implement key features of e-Citation to enhance officer and motorist safety by decreasing the duration of roadside traffic stops, use automation to improve the legibility of the electronically generated citation, and implement tools and technology to facilitate the electronic and secure transmission of the record of the traffic violation to the court. In addition to the Maryland State Bar Association (MSBA), the initiative has the support of the Maryland State’s Attorney’s Association, the Office of the Public Defender and the Maryland Department of Transportation.

     

    As part of the e-Citation initiative ASSYST is working with its public safety partners to improve officer safety by reducing the amount of time an officer is outside the cruiser by an estimated 80 percent. Further, e-Citations will provide the community with accurate information of offenses as officers give citizens citations generated in the laptops in their cruisers. This information can then be used to determine problem areas or "hot-spots", which can be proactively responded to by law enforcement. The data from e-citation is electronically transferred to the police agencies and then to the courts, reducing errors throughout the processing system. As e-Citation evolves it will become a proven model of efficiency in government, and more importantly an innovative approach to improving public safety.
