Short Description:

The Programmer will be required to work with Family Court and develop interfaces and programatic changes to support the requirements related to Family Court Child Support Processing and interfaces with the Division of Child Support Enforcement. 


Complete Description:

The Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE) is implementing a new case management system purchased from another State.  The system is predominantly off-the-shelf software with some customizations to meet the requirements of the State and Federal Child Support Regulations.  The new system, like the legacy system, will interface at several points with the Family Court of the State of Delaware’s Case Management System, FAMIS.    Much of the documentation and requirements are completed from the perspective of the Division of Child Support enforcement.  However, the complimenting requirements from the Family Court are not developed and the Court must seek to enhance its systems simultaneous to the implementation of the Child Support System.


Additionally, components of the Family Court’s System are in need of improvements simultaneous to the construction of the interfaces.  For example, improvements to the Child Support (Melson) Calculation might be required in order to satisfactorily transmit the obligee’s amounts to the Division.   This position should look to develop business and functional requirements of the interface and FAMIS Support processing in conjunction with various Family Court Staff.     Participation on the DCSE project may be necessary as well. 


Specifically, this position should look at the following components:


1.            Interfaces received from the Division of Child Support Enforcement

2.            Subsequent case initiation – i.e. case acceptance from DCSE

3.            Interfaces sent to the Division of Child Support Enforcement
