VIP Wins Project Management Contract for California Secretary of State

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2012) - The California Secretary of State awarded Visionary Integration Professionals (VIP) a contract for just under $1 million to provide project management services for the California Business Connect (CBC) project, which will automate the manual filing and records request processes within the agency's Business Programs Division.

Most businesses are required to file documents with the Secretary of State (SOS) when operating in California. Currently, SOS staff members follow laborious procedures to process over two million filings and records requests a year. In some cases, no electronic back-up files exist.

The California Business Connect project will automate and streamline filing and records-request processing while also supporting more environmentally friendly and cost-effective procedures by eliminating dependence on paper-based transactions.

VIP has more than 16 years of experience serving the State of California on some of its largest IT system implementations and has developed a reputation as one of the state's most reliable project management consulting firms.

VIP has developed a project management methodology that is aligned with the standards defined by the Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The methodology is continuously improved to ensure alignment with the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) approach defined by the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) at Carnegie Mellon University. All VIP state and local government project managers in California are PMP certified through the PMI.
