June 2017 - CSTS User Group Meeting

The annual CSTS User Group meeting was held on June 28, 2017 at the Kelly Inn in St. Cloud. Over 130 users attended the conference. The morning session was the User Group's business meeting with the approval of Committee memberships and Chairpersons and CSTS project update from STI. The afternoon session included:

• A preview of CSTS version 3.5 - This new version allows CSTS agencies to receive and consume case data updates from MNCIS directly into CSTS. The process of configuring and receiving the data notifications was demonstrated as well as the related Message Center additions. There are also over 40 new CSTS system-wide enhancements included in version 3.5, most coming from suggestions submitted by CSTS users.

• Members of the CSTS Strategic Planning Committee presented an update on the Committee's work and recommendations on the strategic planning that has been performed on the Corrections User Group's products. The Committee presented the adopted future vision of CSTS and its platform, features, integrations, opportunities, timeframe, and implications.

• STI also provided a demonstration of the web-based Assessment Management Tool (AMT) system. This new software that is integrated with CSTS, will allow agencies to setup and complete various assessments and also will import LS/CMI and YLS data from the MNDOC. Although Hennepin County has sponsored the project, it will be available to all CSTS agencies sometime in 2018.
