Macro Solutions conducted an Information Technology Program Assessment (ITPA) for the FDIC’s Division of Information Resource Management (DIRM).
This study identified areas of inefficiency and high comparative costs, and developed an appropriate sourcing plan and organizational structure to support an efficient and effective client-focused IT program. This study helped to establish the framework for the FDIC’s future IT goals.
This has enabled the FDIC to better meet the organization’s current and planned mission of “preserving and promoting public confidence in the U.S. financial system by insuring deposits in banks and thrift institutions for up to $100,000.”
The HUD Ginnie Mae (GNMA)
PeopleSoft Financials Project involved an integrated technical effort in combination with a detailed functional effort. Macro Solutions was responsible for leading the technical effort for the implementation of GNMA’s General Ledger.
Macro Solutions was involved in every phase of the system’s development lifecycle, including:
• Fit/Gap Analysis
• Implementation Plan
• Business Process Interviews and Data Collection
• Documenting and Demonstrating Process Flows in PeopleSoft
• Reporting, Testing, Security
The Smithsonian Institution built a custom payroll interface in Visual Basic to process payroll data collected by the National Finance Center and create accounting transactions for posting to their general ledger system. After the system had been in operation for a number of years Smithsonian no longer had access to system design documentation needed to integrate the PAYES system with their new general ledger system.
Smithsonian called on Macro Solutions to develop detailed system documentation of the existing Visual Basic code and Crystal Reports, and provide system enhancements to the code on an as needed basis. Macro Solutions was able to identify the appropriate resource to assist Smithsonian’s internal staff.
