What are Mid-Level Solution Requirements and why are they being included in the Stage 2 Alternatives Analysis?

Mid-Level solution Requirements describe the characteristics of a solution that will meet the business objectives identified in the Stage 1 Business Analysis. The Department of Technology has developed instructions in SIMM 19B to provide Agencies/state entities guidance on developing and documenting Mid-Level Solution Requirements as a part of the Stage 2 Alternatives Analysis. As part of the future release of the Stage 3 Solution Development, requirements guidelines will be published to provide further guidance on maturing Mid-Level Solution Requirements into Solution Requirements to support the solicitation and will serve as a tool for Agencies/state entities to understand how requirements are progressively elaborated through the project approval lifecycle stage/gate model and bridge business objectives to solution requirements.
