Accenture Awarded Contract for Ohio Integrated Eligibility System

(NYSE: ACN) has been selected by the State of Ohio, following a competitive bid process, to build a new integrated eligibility system for health and human service programs. The contract has a 66-month base period that runs to August 2018.
The new system will streamline processes and enhance technology for eligibility determination and the delivery of benefits to citizens. Beneficiaries will have new self-service online access options.

combine process and technology advancements to support the core missions of human service agencies.
“Ohio is taking a decisive step in modernizing its human services system to provide better value to taxpayers, better tools for state workers, and to improve citizen services,” said Julie Booth
, who leads Accenture’s Human Services practice in North America.
“The approach in terms of technology and process streamlining is to eliminate agency silos, enable cross-program coordination, and reduce technology costs while better meeting the needs of citizens and caseworkers,” said David McCurley
, managing director of Accenture’s public sector software business.
