A checklist based on NIST 800-53 rev 4, to assist states in preparing their UI IT systems for security assessments conducted by agencies such as the IRS, SSA, and NDNH.
Building on lessons learned from previous state implementations of modernized UI IT systems, UI ITSC and USDOL has developed a UI IT Modernization Pre-Implementation Planning Checklist for states to use prior to "going live" with a new system. This comprehensive checklist denotes critical functional areas for states to verify prior to launching including, but not limited to, technical IT functions and UI business processes that interface with the new system.
Many states are familiar with cross matching UI claims with the National Directory of New Hires (NDNH) and the Social Security Administration (SSA) which are used for the prevention, detection, and collection of benefit overpayments. UI ITSC compiled a "checklist" of common cross matches and data exchanges that most states use. The checklist presents both federal and state specific cross matches and data exchanges with short descriptions of each and the corresponding UI functional areas.
