tiag® Expands Agile Development Team Supporting Dynamic Systems for U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services within DHS

WASHINGTON, D.C., December 5, 2017 – To bolster the capabilities of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), tiag® (The Informatics Applications Group, Inc.) is expanding its team delivering Lean and Agile-based development and maintenance IT support for USCIS through September 2019.

Together with partner VariQ Corporation, tiag is an integral part of the team providing operations and maintenance services for the USCIS Verification Information System (VIS). As a composite information system that incorporates data from various DHS databases, VIS is the underlying information technology that drives E-Verify and the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) Program.

tiag’s work in this mission strengthens USCIS core business areas to effectively, efficiently maintain these systems and applications that provide immigration status verification for benefits determinations and employment authorization through the USCIS Verification Division.

tiag Chief Strategy Officer Umang Modi explains that numerous public and private agencies rely upon the mission-critical VIS systems tiag is supporting, as well as employers across the nation that use these verification services. Modi notes that tiag’s ability to deliver superior results for this contract resulted in the technology company’s expanded footprint within DHS.

“To date, the VIS program has demonstrated great value in providing service and responding to an increasing scope and customer base,” says Modi. “Along the way, this team has and will continue to innovate by improving these dynamic systems through iterative Agile development, and ensuring long-term sustainability by moving it to the cloud.”

As part of this four-year contract, tiag’s prior work on the SAVE program included web service integration with state and federal health exchanges, in addition to Medicaid systems. Due in part to this team’s efforts, the exchanges facilitated enrollments of more than 12.7 million people during the FY16 open-enrollment period.
