2021 Showcase Projects

Ag Inputs Division Electronic Inspection Platform

Georgia Department of Agriculture

Out of a recent partnership with Mi-Corporation, the Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) developed the groundbreaking Agricultural Inputs (Ag Inputs) Division Electronic Inspection Platform. The platform streamlines the inspection process for the division’s nearly 30 regulatory inspection and more than 10 sample collection forms for the state’s feed, fertilizer, lime, seed, pesticide, soil amendment, and horticultural growing media programs. In addition, the GDA Ag Inputs Division Electronic Inspection Platform promotes increased communication between field staff and program managers and quicker analysis of inspection results.

Contract Management and Vendor Connect

Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities

The Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) Contract Management and Vendor Connect program is a comprehensive enterprise application that offers DBHDD and its partners greater visibility into the contract workflow. The program makes the contracting process transparent through the centralized Contract Management Application (CMA) and Vendor Connect (VC). The applications contain single sign on capabilities, workflow management tools, contract approval tracking and visibility, and more, using user-friendly, web-based .NET apps. Ultimately, it allows DBHDD to better manage their network of providers and vendors who serve Georgia constituents.

Intelligent Mail Bar Code

Georgia Department of Driver Services

Failure to pay child support, appear in court, or respond to a traffic citation are all reasons that the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) can suspend a constituent’s driver’s license. Early in 2020, DDS prioritized a more cost-efficient way to send these suspension notices, and the Intelligent Mail Bar Code helps meet this goal. The barcode leverages a 65-bar USPS barcode used to track mail, routing codes, a mail identifier (MID), a unique serial number strategy, and reporting with USPS to address several opportunities for increased efficiency, improved service, and enhanced delivery of driver’s license suspension notices.

Identification Authentication

Georgia Department of Labor

To mitigate the risks related to unauthorized access to UI insurance, DOL instituted an identity authentication project. The first phase of this project, ID.me, encompasses federally certified identity verification, including flagging applicants that are unbanked, have no credit, and more, while simultaneously blocking evident fraud. Based on these flags, DOL directs individuals to verify at the ID.me hosted landing page (HLP), and if DOL receives the “all clear” results back from ID.me, the department can remove any flags on the account and process payments quickly.

Perceptive Content

Georgia Department of Transportation

Every month, the Georgia Department of Transportation (DOT) receives thousands of invoices from their vendors. Some of that invoice processing took place manually, taking 15 to 25 days to complete - until DOT made AP process automation a priority. To do that, DOT launched a software known as Perceptive Content. The initiative resulted in a standard eight days to process an invoice, no more paper receipts for payments on purchase orders, no more voucher summary forms for payments on contracts payable invoices, and more.

The Dual Enrollment Funding Application

Georgia Student Finance Commission

The Dual Enrollment Funding Application, part of the GAfutures enterprise, was developed in .NET with an Oracle database. Through the new streamlined process of enrolling high school students in college courses, all parties use the same interface to transfer information among stakeholders. The system has a universal view, allowing users to view application status and next steps. In the first year, 59,000 Georgia high school students successfully registered and were approved for funding for 155,000 college courses. This new process also brought online dual enrollment funding applications for over 2,500 home study students whose process previously was entirely manual.
