New concepts related to agreements l.jpg
New Concepts Related to Agreements

  • Agreement is defined as an understanding between the state and another party, the details of which are documented in the CAS.

  • Agreements are both formal & informal:

    • Formal requires OSC pre-approval (Contract or P.O.)

    • Informal does not require OSC pre-approval (Contract, P.O., or other business arrangement [i.e. invoice or bill from electricity provider])

  • All payments require a CAS documented agreement (formal or informal) – informal will require minimal information & may be input at the same time as payment request.


Additional key messages l.jpg
Additional Key Messages

  • We will be moving towards a paperless world.

  • We want to provide a user-friendly system, one in which you can easily get reports, inquiries & status of your transactions.

  • We want to eliminate redundant data entry by storing appropriate information.


Key points about business models l.jpg
Key Points about Business Models

  • Proposed new world

  • Logical models – not physical

  • Business models not technical Models (i.e. not a database Model)

  • Look at the world from specific points of view

    • Events

    • Process

    • Information/Objects

  • Terminology often different from what is used today

    • More precise

    • More descriptive

    • May not be used in the solution

  • All of the models were reconciled to ensure that we have a comprehensive view of the business
