California wants a contractor to help migrate 35 of its 58 counties to the statewide, automated welfare consortium IV system from the interim system. An RFP is expected in July 2007.
These counties have used the interim system for more than 10 years for public assistance programs. After functional and technical reviews of the alternatives, all 35 counties chose the C-IV system as their best alternative.
The C-IV system verifies eligibility for public assistance, computes benefits, provides timely benefits distribution, reduces administrative complexity, collects data and provides accurate fiscal reports.These opportunities are compiled by market research firm Input Inc., Reston, Va. (www.input.com)
