Data Warehousing Strategic Consulting Services for the Statewide Financial System (SFS)

Description of Solicitation: The purpose of this Solicitation is to solicit proposals and award a contract to a firm that would provide a consultant for Data Warehousing Strategic Consulting Services for the Statewide Financial System (SFS).

As reliance upon the Statewide Financial System continues to expand, both through significant growth in the user base by the on-boarding of the remaining three major, project centric agencies, as well as growth in various business areas and additional data needs, the State is looking to ensure that its financial reporting and business intelligence solutions will best support this growth and the State’s long-term needs.

To achieve this goal, SFS is looking to retain consultant services with extensive experience in the successful delivery of data warehouse information access solutions. The areas of focus for this engagement will be:

  • Conducting analysis of the current state
  • Making recommendations for improvements, based upon a best-practice based, future state
  • Developing plans to implement recommended improvements
  • Leading the initial implementation of accepted recommendations

This will require a thorough understanding of business intelligence, data warehousing, financial reporting, and NYS government structure and financial processes.
