Eligibility Verification System

SB 74 established AS 47.05.105, which requires the department to implement an enhanced computerized income, asset, and identity eligibility verification system. The purpose of this system is to verify eligibility, eliminate duplication of public assistance payments, and deter waste and fraud in public assistance programs. Establishment of this system has been delayed during the transition of the public assistance programs’ Eligibility Information System (EIS) to the new Alaska’s Resource for Integrated Eligibility Services (ARIES) system, but the department anticipates releasing a Request for Proposals (RFP) during State Fiscal Year 2019 to solicit a contract with an eligibility verification system provider.
