Separate Application Environments that are or will be available. Indicate, using the four check boxes which, separate, environments your application has or plans to have. Lab is generally an area that system support test patches and updates. Development is where application programmers generally develop and test code changes. Pre production or user acceptance testing is the environment where application owners test changes and functions before moving to production. Pre production generally closely replicates the production environment. Production is the environment that the application actually runs in for general day to day use.

Application Architecture: Please attach a diagram with the information requested depicted on it. If this is a SB991 project and you have submitted the architecture information, you can attach a copy of that or we will obtain a copy from the EPMO.

In addition, indicate the number of users you anticipate for the first 6 months. Then indicate the total number of application users for each type in years two, three and five.

State and Local Government Employees: If state and local government users will be in the system in anysubstantial number, please indicate the agencies and total users for each.

Load Distribution: in this section indicate the normal load distribution in a day, week, month, and year. Are their peak demand times and if so when?

Type of Authentication and Authorization Needed: Indicate the type of authentication and coarse grain authorization you are requiring from NCID. Fine grained authorization, if required, will need to be implemented by the application.

Process of Approving Application Access: Briefly describe the business rules for granting access to the application. Is it done with direct supervisor approval, management approval, paper form, etc?

Auditing Requirements: Briefly describe the auditing requirements from a user access perspective. How long are logs required to be kept and in what form? Is there a time demand for getting audit information?

Security Requirements: Are there any special security requirements pertaining to authentication and authorization?

Business Continuity Requirements: It there were a disaster or service interruption, what are the requirements for having the system access restored?
