Front Desk Software, L.L.C. has subcontracted personnel on several occasions to BDM Technologies (now TRW, Inc.).  These involved projects in Montana, in other states, and in Puerto Rico.

In the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, personnel were needed to install and configure a database engine (an IDMS Central Version) to allow them to use the same child-support enforcement software that BDM Technologies wrote for use in the state of Montana.  The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico did not have personnel with the experience and abilities required for this project and they contracted BDM Technologies.  BDM Technologies hired Front Desk Software, L.L.C. to perform the required tasks.

These major changes involved replacing the operating system from OS to VSE and the security from ACF/2 to Top Secret.  These tasks were several months in duration, and required intensive testing and quality assurance.  Additionally, while on site, Front Desk Software, L.L.C. personnel taught BDM staff IDMS-ADS programming techniques and concepts.

Front Desk Software, L.L.C. was hired by BDM Technologies to work in Albuquerque, NM, installing and configuring IDMS Central Version for the State of Alabama.  BDM Technologies was again installing the child-support enforcement software used in Montana, and needed additional expertise in putting this system together.

BDM Technologies has contracted with Front Desk Software, L.L.C. locally to provided support in database design and administration support for the Montana Child and Adult Protective Services (CAPS) project.  Front Desk Software, L.L.C. was called in halfway through the project, and was able to finish the design work, including the IDMS data directory, and the design of the CAPS IDMS database on schedule.

During this time, Front Desk Software, L.L.C.’s duties included acting as the technical advisor to the CAPS project leads, as well as teaching 12 new programmers the COBOL programming language, mainframe Job Control Language, and the TSO development environment.
