HP Enterprise Services has won a $305 million contract to continue to manage the welfare eligibility determination system of California’s Welfare Client Data Systems consortium.
Under the contract, HP will provide IT services for the consortium’s CalWORKS Information Network.
The CalWORKS Information Network is an online, automated eligibility determination, benefit calculation and management system that serves more than 485 sites across 18 California counties.
The system manages 40 percent of the state’s welfare caseload and processes an average of 22 million transactions per day for public assistance programs, including food and nutrition assistance and medical services, HP said in a release.
Under the contract, HP Enterprise Services will implement modernization projects to improve the systems’ business intelligence, document management and customer service functions.
