The Illinois Department of Public Aid
plans to implement an automated fingerprint information system with digitized photo identification capabilities for welfare recipients. The solicitation for the project, called the Automated Identification and Matching System, is expected to be released in August or September.
Printrak International Inc. implemented a pilot system, which has been installed in three public aid local offices and a central processing office. The pilot determined that fingerprint and photo identification technology is cost-effective for preventing fraud in Aid to Families with Dependent Children. The complete system will be implemented in more than 130 offices statewide.
