To maximize the availability of the OMB Circular A-87 enhanced match funding, West Virginia developed a progressive approach for a single procurement to provide a modular Integrated Eligibility Solution (IES) to support the administration of the health and human services programs for its Child Support, Emergency Assistance, LIEAP, Medicaid, School Clothing Vouchers, Social Services, SNAP, and TANF recipients. West Virginia's unique strategy included mandatory requirements in their Request for Proposals (RFP) that limited the number of modules that could be owned by any one vendor, which necessitated vendor partnerships to support the solution. West Virginia's strategy is aimed at achieving a streamlined contract management vehicle where the prime vendor is contractually obligated to comply, manage, and ensure corrective action for all service level agreements (SLAs) and performance metrics. The result of the procurement was bid proposals featuring multiple vendor partnerships with best of breed solutions across the enterprise to create new found efficiencies in; operations, interoperability, partnerships, cost sustainability, and reuse across the health and human services domain. Join West Virginia as we discuss the methodology and strategies used to develop these procurement requirements and lessons learned from our process.
