PMI recognized the Big Four firm’s advisory services’ work on a web infrastructure treatment services project for the Florida Department of Children.

The team utilized its proprietary framework in the $1.9 million project, helping DCF implement a web-based electronic health records system.

"We're honored to be recognized for this award and pleased that we could support our client," said Mike Shaklik, partner of Ernst & Young’s advisory services, in a statement.
