PSI’s social services include sustained efforts supporting delivery of public assistance to children, helping states and municipalities recover reimbursements, benefits delivery, and loan guarantee systems.

• Conducting quality reviews of childcare, Head Start, and foster care providers

PSI’s information technology roots are evident in our experience developing and supporting benefits delivery systems and processes at the Federal and State Government levels. Our efforts are focused on ensuring the appropriate benefits are delivered to the individuals who are deserving of them. The systems and processes we support exist to serve some of the most deserving among us — children and veterans.
PSI has supported benefits delivery at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) at the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) since 1987. Currently we provide application development and maintenance support for a variety of benefits delivery systems.
Through our child welfare services, we have supported delivery of benefits to children in the State of New York, Iowa, Ohio and Tennessee.
Most recently, PSI was awarded a contract to provide New York’s Dutchess County with a client tracking and case management toolset designed to support the mission of the Department of Social Services (DSS) and act as a front-end for New York State’s Office for Temporary Assistance and Disability (OTDA) systems of record. The baseline for Dutchess’ Client Tracking and Case Management System has been developed with current technology platforms to enhance the caseworkers’ ability to perform, improve case management, and allow for timely and accurate delivery of service to DSS clients. It incorporates a parameter-driven technology that is flexible and comprehensive, designed to support the individual needs of any County in the State based on an “out-of-the-box” application designed to support the State’s mainframe and emerging Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) environments.
