An assessment of social assistance information systems for the Alberta region: R5-199/1979E-PDF

"In November, 1978, as part of the Phase II of the Indian Program Management Information System Project, Quasar Systems Ltd. undertook a study to assess the information systems supporting the Social Assistance Program in the regional offices. This report presents the results of the study in the Alberta region. The primary objective of our study was to determine the adequacy of the regional information systems to respond to the requirements for financial control and the management of the program activities. As an integral part of the overall review of the social assistance program, our review component focuses on assessment of the mechanisms in place to record, process and report financial and management information. Both clerical and computerized components of the information system were reviewed."--Executive Summary.
