Continued support of this system through its operations and maintenance phase will ensure that ICE and the components that depend on this application to support their financial management, can continue to track their budget allocations, expenditures, and provide justifications for the programs they support. Additionally, investments to this project will ensure that FFMS continues to adapt to changing financial and security regulations and mandates. FFMS has migrated to the DHS Data Center 2, where vendor support is now available. Due to DHS's decision to cease moving towards a DHS enterprise solution, ICE will continue to fund the current system until a new solution is in place. At this time, the CIO assesses the ICE FFMS program as Moderately Low Risk. More..
