Establishing a multi-state consortium can offer significant benefits, including sharing costs and leveraging best practices among the states. CSG provides planning and project assurance services to all three current consortiums in the U.S. Our UI experts have unequalled knowledge of the state-of-the-art in consortium development.
CSG'S Expertise in Action
The MW Consortium and CSG Government Solutions
The states of Maryland and West Virginia (MW Consortium) have joined in a collaborative effort to modernize their Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax, benefits, and appeals systems.
UI Consortium Strategy, Planning, and PMO by CSG SM
The MW Consortium selected CSG to assist with strategy and planning activities during Phase I of the implementation. CSG developed an in-depth feasibility study for the establishment of a common core information system to replace large portions of the states’ legacy systems. The study contained a comprehensive description of the functional and technical requirements and processes of each state, identifying common processes, variations, and a core system architecture. It also contained a plan for moving the Consortium forward through design, development, and implementation (DDI) of the system.
For Phase II, the DDI stage of the project, CSG is providing Project Management Office and procurement support services. CSG is managing the PMO including supporting the Consortium with oversight of the DDI vendor; identification and management of risks and issues; control of the project integrated master schedule; and tracking and reporting project status. CSG is also assisting with request for proposal activities.
Let us apply our expertise, innovation, and results-oriented approach to help you with your multi-state consortium challenges.
Maryland and West Virginia are committed to working together to realize the benefits of a multi-state consortium approach to modernizing their UI systems. CSG is here to help.
The WyCAN Consortium and CSG Government Solutions
The states of Wyoming, Colorado, and Arizona (the WyCAN Consortium) have joined in a collaborative effort to modernize their Unemployment Insurance (UI) Tax and Benefits systems. The consortium selected CSG to provide Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) throughout the full system development life cycle of the new multi-state system.
IV&V by CSG SM
CSG is implementing a rigorous IV&V process across all phases of the WyCAN implementation project. Our team assures that the project produces high-quality deliverables and achieves its core objectives within tight budgetary and schedule limitations. CSG also provides ongoing risk assessments and mitigation strategies to WyCAN executives.
We utilize our Unemployment Insurance and Project Assurance Services Centers of Excellence and CSG REALize℠ tools to assure the WyCAN project benefits from our national expertise and best practices in IV&V and multi-state consortium projects.
The WyCAN states are pursuing a vision to collaboratively modernize their UI tax and benefits systems. CSG is there to help them achieve that goal.
The Southeast Consortium and CSG
The states of Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia (the Southeast Consortium) have reached a major milestone in their collaborative effort to modernize their Unemployment Insurance (UI) systems.
With the assistance of CSG Government Solutions, the Southeast Consortium has produced an in-depth feasibility study for the development of a common core information system to replace large portions of the states’ legacy systems. The study contains a comprehensive description of the business requirements and processes of each of the Consortium states, identifying common processes, individual state variations and a core system architecture. It also contains a plan for moving the Consortium initiative forward through design and implementation of the system.
CSG has engaged a senior team with experience in over 15 states and deployed our industry-leading CSG REALizeSM-UI collection of knowledge, techniques, and automated tools to inform and facilitate the projects.
