Project Background 

Project Overview - The State of Mississippi, Department of Human Services (MDHS) is planning for a modernization of the Information Systems that support the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Child Support Enforcement (CSE), and Child Care (CC) programmatic

areas. The Mississippi Department of Human Services is dedicated to its mission of "Offering Mississippians Young and Old Tangible Help Today to Create Lasting Hope for Tomorrow". 

MDHS is seeking to retain a Vendor for Independent Verification and Validation Services to provide an unbiased assessment of the quality and readiness of system components, project deliverables or any other items required for the successful implementation of the Enterprise-Wide Framework and Integrated Case Management and Eligibility system named SUCCESS.

Background- MDHS is now beginning to plan the replacement of the Department's aging and disparate legacy systems. Specifically, it is the Department's goal and intention to replace or modernize the information systems that support the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) - including Disaster SNAP (DSNAP) and SNAP Employment & Training sub-modules, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), Child Support Enforcement (CSE) and the Child Care Payment System (CCPS) program areas through multiple iterations.
