    Responsibilities

    The purpose of this project is to replace the existing legacy ten-plus year-old application/systems software and related hardware. The application software, eSoS, is the primary application used by the Office of the Secretary of State (NVSoS) for the purpose of processing; archiving and receipting Commercial Recordings business entity filings which generate $135 million annually in General Fund revenue. The current desktop, online application, and related system processes are being pushed to their limits and are failing more frequently as the complexity and volume of filings increases month after month. Increasingly, work stoppages are occurring because of a fragile and unstable platform which is not easily adaptable or supported by emerging technologies. The instability of the current system; along with the delays and limitations of the system, impact not only the revenue generated by entity filings but also threatens Nevada’s reputation as an efficient and predictable filing State. The replacement of the existing system is to provide a modern application that will promote and enable increased self-service and be flexible and scalable to meet customer and business needs. The application must include desktop, online and direct, “bulk” filing processes. Helping to enable business filings, the application will accommodate the needs of the customer to file bulk filings and provide other more modern alternatives to human data entry. The application will meet all the State requirements for continuity, maintainability, security, and sustainability.
