The System Integrity Review Tool is a valuable instrument for both state agency and federal SNAP staff to evaluate whether a system meets SNAP functional requirements.
The CAM Toolkit was made available to federal, state, and local agencies through collaboration among the US Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families and Office of Child Support Enforcement, FNS, and representatives from the States of Kansas and Texas.
FNS performed an inventory of EBT procurements and conducted a few interviews with some States and EBT processors. As a results, we developed a technical assistance document with lessons learned and best practices on EBT re-procurements.
There are four different types of CAM Tool (MS - Excel) examples that are available to assist the user.
The Cost Allocation Methodologies (CAM) provides a consistent, objective cost allocation process for identifying all federal and state benefiting programs and calculating an equitable distribution of software development costs among those benefiting programs. A series of worksheets walks the use through the cost allocation process.
CAM Tool User Guide - supplements the on-screen help available in the CAM-Tool, itself. It contains step-by-step procedures and screen displays to illustrate how to capture and analyze the data needed to produce equitable distributions of software development costs to federal and state benefiting programs.
The WIC Post-Implementation Review Tool consists of two parts: the review tool itself and a functional area spreadsheet.
Information Systems in WIC support a number of program operations and management functions, such as certifying applicants, monitoring food vendors, tracking participation and expenditures and managing appointments. The Functional Requirements Document for a Model WIC System (FRED) provides a comprehensive description of functions that can be automated to support the WIC program.
The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has developed the Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) System Transition Guide to provide guidance, recommendations, best practices, and lessons learned to States involved in an EBT system transition.
This guide describes methods for assigning costs to a state or local agency's WIC Program grant or sub-grant.
