Department of Children and Family Services Centralized Bank Recon (CR) The Centralized Bank Reconcilliation application is the standardized system to handle reconciliation of all DCFS bank accounts. Not Started 4 - Devastating Impact This application generates no income for the department and, if it were to fail, would not impact funding. Average monthly payments to clients for the subsystems listed above total $8,654,473 and those payments would be interrupted as long as CR is out of service. This application submits check data to the bank for all DCFS subsystems (TIPS, LASES, JAS and DDS), if the application would experience an outage, the bank could not verify the validity of checks presented by clients and providers. Normal 100K-500K OEPT-386
Department of Children and Family Services DCFS Recovery Accounts System (RAS) This application maintains loss histories for bad debts owed to the start for 10 welfare programs. Not Started 3 - High Impact Potential undeterminable economic impact due to efficiencies lost. RAS failure would make it impossible for DCFS to have an accurate view of how much money is owed by each client who had received an over-payment. Normal 1M-2M OEPT-390
Department of Children and Family Services Disability Determination System (DDS) DDS is a batch system that produces checks and remittance advices for the Office of Disability Determination Services and payroll reports / files using data from ISIS HR. Checks and remittance advices are printed for the Office of DDS with payroll reports and payroll file are generated using data from ISIS HR. Not Started 4 - Devastating Impact Potential undeterminable economic impact due to efficiencies lost. The failure of this system would result in the agency's inability to provide disability checks to the client population, which relies on these payments for their support. Normal 100K-500K OEPT-392
Department of Children and Family Services Interstate Compact for Placement of Children (ICPC) ICPC provides adoption placement services. Complete 4 - Devastating Impact Potential undeterminable economic impact due to efficiencies lost. The ICPC database is vital for tracking children who are in foster care and placed in Louisiana from other states and for Louisiana children placed in other states. If the system were to fail, DCFS would lose its ability to track the location and progress reports of the children that are currently in its database. Normal 100K-500K NEICE system OEPT-397
Department of Children and Family Services ISIS Interface Receives financial information from all DCFS programs that generate payments. The ISIS Interface application is used to record DCFS subsystem (LAMI, TIPS, JAS and DDS) expenditures in the State's financial system of record (ISIS). In-Progress 4 - Devastating Impact If the ISIS Interface application would fail, DCFS subsystem expenditure information would not be accurately populated in ISIS, directly resulting in inaccurate financial reports and federal grant reports that are generated through ISIS. Potential degradation of services to constituents from undetermined potential efficiencies lost. Normal 100K-500K LaGov OEPT-398
Department of Children and Family Services LASES Web LASES WEB is a web-based front end system for LASES that houses the customer message center that supports client self-service. This application keeps up to date with the legacy mainframe LASES and streamlines the processes for a higher level of user experience. Not Started 4 - Devastating Impact Loss could result in the loss of 1 - 2% of the TANF Block Grant for program non-compliance. The DCFS Customer Service Center relies on LASES Web to respond to customer inquiries, taking approximately 35,000 - 45,000 calls monthly. Failure of the system would inhibit the ability of DCFS to interface with its client population of 562,858 constituents and their children Normal 49K-100K OEPT-411
Department of Children and Family Services Louisiana Automated Support Enforcement System (LASES) Designed to implement the Title IV-D program to support the Child Support program for the state of LA. LASES is a comprehensive case management system that maintains data on all child support cases and performs automated functions pertaining to locating non-custodial parents, establishing paternity and child/medical support orders, and enforcing/collecting, distributing support payments. Not Started 4 - Devastating Impact LASES generates $4,399,240 annually through reimbursement for FITAP and KCSP grants, genetic test fees, parent locate fees, child support application fees, federal deficit reductions act fees and NSF recovery fees. DCFS currently has 281,429 active cases serving 562,858 constituents and their children who rely on these services. Failure of the LASES system would result in the State being in non-compliance and could result in the loss of federal incentive dollars from federal partners. Key 75M-100M OEPT-413
Department of Children and Family Services Statewide Income and Eligibility Verification System (SIEVS) Application used to obtain and use data from the Social Security Administration Wage and Benefit files, the Internal Revenue Service Unearned Income file and the state wage information collection agency wage and benefit files. SIEVS is a requirement of the federal funding agencies to provide state agencies with additional sources of useful information in verifying applicant and recipient reported circumstances. Not Started 4 - Devastating Impact While SIEVS generates no funds for the agency, system failure could result in the loss of $58 million in funding for Administrative Costs from FNS, due to SNAP program non-compliance. Approximately $110 million in SNAP benefits would not be issued to constituents should this system fail. Key 2M-5M OEPT-418
Department of Children and Family Services Tracking Information Payment System (TIPS) On-line, statewide interagency information management and payment system capable of tracking client information and generating payments for CW clients.

Currently 4,348 children are being served in Foster Care, 7,041 children are receiving an Adoption Subsidy, and 92 children are receiving a Guardianship Subsidy. Should the TIPS application fail, DCFS would not be able to track any of the individuals being served, would have no way of identifying where the served children are located, would have no way of paying any of the providers for services, and no way of establishing responsible parties in provision of care and service to the clients Key 50M-75M Unify system OEPT-421
