    1. The State needs to fund client relation management systems for the call centers that allow linkage to SPIDER and other data that already exists. The State may need to purchase the data that already exists, costs related to this expense need to be considered.
    2. The State needs to fund IT support to manage the client relation management systems. Current best practice is 1 FTE per 700 resources on file.
