Financial and Services Accountability Management System – FASAMS

The 2015 Florida Legislature, through Specific Appropriation 302A, requires the Department of Children and Families (Department) to develop and implement a uniform information management and fiscal accounting system for providers of community substance abuse and mental health services. In response to this legislation, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health (SAMH) Program Office, in collaboration with the department’s Office of Information Technology, created the Financial and Services Accountability Management System (FASAMS) project. It also established an Information Management Project Team to participate in the development of FASAMS business requirements.

Design, Development and Implementation


An Information Management Project Team was established to participate in the development of FASAMS business requirements. These activities were defined as Phase I and have been successfully concluded.

In September 2016, Phase II of FASAMS was launched. Phase II consists of the development of a FASAMS procurement document and supporting documentation along with the release of the FASAMS procurement to procure a vendor for the solution services. The department partnered with North Highland for both Phase I and Phase II. Currently within Phase II, North Highland is assisting the department in the development of the procurement documentation and is providing support during the procurement phase of the project. The release of the procurement document is anticipated in early 2107 with a contract award by end of SFY 2017.

The DCF SAMH FASAMS Project ITN#03U17GN1 has been posted to the Florida Department of Management Services (DMS) Vendor Bid System (VBS) Monday, March 6, 2017.
