Proposed Rule: Automated Data Processing and Information Retrieval System Requirements

This rule proposes to amend Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)--formerly the Food Stamp Program) regulations to implement the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (the Farm Bill), which requires adequate system testing before and after implementation of a new state automatic data processing (ADP) and information retrieval system, including the evaluation of data from pilot projects in limited areas for major systems changes, before the Secretary approves the system to be implemented more broadly.

In March 2007, WIC State agencies and Regional Offices received a memorandum that provided guidance on the process for State Agency Model (SAM) transfers. That guidance included: 1)the priority for funding, 2) the components of the streamlined Implementation Advance Planning Document (IAPD), and 3) examples of justification for non-SAM transfers. It has come to our attention that there is some confusion as to what is required to justify adoption of a non-SAM system

APD Costs Incurred by State Agencies Other Than Social Services Agencies

FNS has become aware of a growing trend in states to consolidate or centralize some or all of the state's IT services across departmental lines.

WIC Program Advanced Planning Document (APD) Policy Changes

The purpose of the memorandum is to set forth policy in the APD process for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC Program). These policy changes and/or clarifications should lessen the burden of the current WIC APD process, and are effective immediately.
