The California Department of Social Services proposes to implement a fully automated and integrated web-based solution to replace CWS/CMS. The proposed Child Welfare Services – New System (CWS-NS) solution provides an enterprise computing infrastructure using service oriented architecture and will optimize deployment of the counties’ current and emerging business needs and will facilitate effective delivery of CWS services. In November 2015, the project changed strategies in regards to the procurement, design/development, implementation, and maintenance approaches to use agile techniques. To support this new approach, the project has been diligently working with stakeholders and control agencies to develop the digital service Request for Proposals (RFPs) and all other procurements required to successfully execute this change.
