Dovel is leveraging the Oracle suite of products to design, develop and implement a new robust and scalable Electronic Filings in Administrative Proceedings (eFAP) system for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Office of the Secretary (OS) to permit internal and external parties to electronically file documents, the OS staff to electronically docket and serve orders and notices, and allow Administrative Law Judges (ALJ) to receive data from respondents, staff, and Self-Regulatory Organizations.
eFAP allows OS to create and maintain the official docket for documents in Administrative Proceedings (AP) and provides for the management, processing and internal routing of AP documents. It provides for the registration of internal and external users, the receipt of external filings, uploading internal documents, searching of electronically-filed documents, queues for various user roles to manage documents filed by users, archiving and the ability for OS and certain filers to electronically complete service. The Dovel team works collaboratively with the Office of Information Technology (OIT), OS, Security and other divisions on the design, requirements and architecture of the system. The team couples Dovel’s Capability Maturity Model Integration® (CMMI®) Maturity Level (ML) 3 mature processes with Oracle best practices. eFAP strictly adheres to the SEC SDLC and is being delivered using an iterative, incremental approach. Dovel is responsible for training the end users via multiple classroom instructor-led and online training sessions and producing all training materials.
