Sonoma, CA (PRWEB) August 13, 2009
Infolink Consulting announced today that the Center for Digital Government presented Infolink Consulting and IBM Cognos with a "Best Fit Integrator" Horizon Award at the 3rd Annual State and Local Government Industry Summit. The award is for the State of Colorado Office of Information Technology /Department of Human Services (OIT/CDHS) AFCARS Tracking business intelligence (BI) solution. The OIT/CDHS nominated Infolink for this award.
"This award recognizes Infolink's solid ability to design and deliver customized, targeted solutions for Government agencies using state-of-the-art technology," noted Bob Tinglestad, Infolink President. This BI solution affords Colorado an easy-to-use tool - the AFCARS (Adoption and Foster Care Analysis Reporting System) BI Solution (http://infolinkconsulting.com/services-state-and.html) - that provides a way for States to use data indicators to better meet federally mandated Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) compliance standards and program improvement plan (PIP) requirements.
Colorado has used the AFCARS BI Solution for monitoring performance on the CFSR permanency composites and permanency measures at a State and County level, and to promote greater availability and understanding of data for current and prior time periods. The AFCARS Solution provides data that administrators, supervisors, and line staff can use to assess their performance quickly and easily.
"Other States have already capitalized on the repeatability and dashboard design of the AFCARS BI Solution by implementing it in their states," continued Tinglestad.
