New York City
Department of Finance

The New York City Department of Finance operates an incredibly complex tax software system integrating 40 major systems, 3,000 programs, and 1,400 job streams into seven subsystems. The data processing requirements were exceeding the capacity of the technology.

A formal value engineering study analyzed the system architecture, hardware, software development, implementation plan and staffing requirements. The result was a change in the program to reduce computer capacity requirements, a revised implementation and staffing plan and monthly savings of $325,000.
