Government

Stellar offers a comprehensive host of software development services to help Government Sector clients, including state and local governments, envision, architect, test and implement data-centric solutions focused on making information and data more accessible to the public. Government organizations face similar challenges as private sector IT, but with an ever expanding list of statutory, regulatory, and compliance requirements. Additionally include the constant expectation to do more with less funding and staff – and you get the idea of how Stellar becomes a trusted-partner!

Sample projects in this area are:

Massachusetts Department of Revenue, Department of Local Services Massachusetts Department of Revenue, Department of Local Services
Services City/Town Officials Directory
Stellar designed and developed a web-based system to display all local officials' data for all cities and towns in Massachusetts. The data is maintained by local officials for all 352 cities and towns. This public facing application is widely used by state officials, private citizens and private businesses to access local officials data for any cities and towns across Massachusetts. Different levels of security were incorporated in the system to allow users of various privileges to view/modify/maintain different data accessible through the system. This system is publicly accessible at http://www.mass.gov/dls

DLS Gateway
This Enterprise Web-based solution was created for use by cities/towns in Massachusetts to submit various property sales and other regulatory data to MA-DOR/DLS in order to manage setting up of tax rate for each city/town within the commonwealth.
Goals were:
1. Create a common authentication model for all DLS staff and public officials to allow them to securely interact with features of the DLS Portal applicable to them.
2. Consolidate all fragmented MS-Access and Excel based processes under the DLS Portal and transfer to a centralized database.
3. Consolidate existing DLS web applications under the Portal (DLS-LOD, LA3, etc).
4. Build the Portal and any supporting processes using the DOR Web Prescriptive Architecture standard.
5. Create a suite of applications with a clean separation of Presentation, Business and Data Access layers.

Modules implemented were:
1. Property Tax Rate Calculation and submission by communities and Approval.
2. Schedule-A Annual Revenues and Expenditures for communities.
3. Local Assessment Data submission (LA3 and EQV).
4. Local Aid management by DLS.
5. Public Reports.
The Gateway application has been successfully implemented and currently in production.
