Louisiana State Experience

Teknologi has provided hosting and support for the LOUISIANA COMMUNITY AND TECHNICAL COLLEGE SYSTEM (LCTCS) schools throughout the state.  Our technical staff provided on-call 24/7 support while improving various technical/IT aspects of the LCTCS system on all of its campuses statewide.  This work also entailed Teknologi providing support services for the LCTCS web-based Student Data System.                                                  

Members of our team consulted with the LOUISIANA DEPARTMENT of CHILDREN and FAMILY SERVICES (DCFS) in addressing some of its modernization efforts and its planning for the development and implementation of their Common Access Front End (CAFE) System.

Our team has been intimately involved in the LOUISIANA OFFICE of STUDENT FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE (LOSFA) “Taylor Opportunity for Students” (TOPS) program upgrade. TOPS provides eligibility requirements processing for all of Louisiana’s high school students and grant recipients.

Additionally, our people have worked with the UNIVERSITY of NEW ORLEANS (UNO) INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY CENTER (ITC) at the lakefront in New Orleans, with the SPACE & NAVAL WARFARE COMMAND (SPAWAR) facility located there, and with several of the university’s in-house programs (Center for Energy Resources Management – CERM), etc.
