Justification
Governor's Recommendations 2022-23

The Governor's Budget Recommendation for Fiscal Year 2022-23 includes $4,537,689 in nonrecurring Child Support Incentive
Trust Fund budget authority in the Purchase of Services Child Support Enforcement and Northwest Regional Data Center
category to support second year implementation costs of migrating the Child Support Automated Management System (CAMS) to
the SAP HANA database. In FY 2021-22, Florida Legislature funded a Proof of Concept (POC) to evaluate the benefits and
impacts of migrating CAMS to the SAP HANA database. The POC is used to test the performance of the HANA database within
CAMS and if the test shows similar or better performance, a decision may be made to implement HANA across the CAMS
landscape. The POC will be finalized in December 2021. The legislature also funded first year implementation costs
contingent upon successful POC results.

Federal law requires states to have a federally certified automated computer system supporting the Child Support Program.
Florida meets this requirement with CAMS. CAMS is an SAP based system and is currently built on an Oracle database. SAP
announced that it will no longer support systems built on non-HANA databases which will make CAMS support limited and
expensive come 2025. SAP introduced its own database called the SAP HANA. Hands-on build and implementation of the POC
environment will allow the conversion steps from Oracle to SAP HANA database to be documented for implementation if the
Department decides to convert CAMS databases to HANA.

If the decision is made to migrate to the HANA database platform following the POC, the funding needed for FY 2022-23 to
continue implementation are as outlined below.

$4,202,901 Hardware Purchases
$ 204,087 Software Maintenance
$ 130,701 Data Center Services
$4,537,689 Total


Assuming the decision is made to proceed to full implementation, total project costs are estimated to be:

FY 2020-21: $ 7,674
FY 2021-22: $2,305,795
FY 2022-23: $4,537,689
FY 2023-24: $ 384,441
Total $7,235,599

All project costs are anticipated to be funded using federal performance incentives. There would also be an ongoing
recurring maintenance impact beginning in FY 2024-25. These costs are still under development but are estimated to be
less than $1 million and are also anticipated to be funded using federal performance incentives.

This issue was included in the Department of Revenue's Legislative Budget Request.

Justification
Governor's Recommendations 2022-23

Appropriations intended for only one year are automatically inversed (added or reduced) from the budget because these
amounts were carried forward from the prior fiscal year. This does not reflect a budget increase or reduction. It is
merely carrying out the intent of the Legislature from the prior fiscal year.
