New York State Department of Health (DOH)

Grant to a New York technology services vendor to update the software management system used by a state nutrition program. Funding is intended to support the provision of a modernized, efficient technological solution that will retain existing software functionality, optimize operational efficiencies, and support evolving program needs.
The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a nutrition education and meal reimbursement program helping providers serve nutritious and safely prepared meals and snacks to children and adults in day care settings each day across the country. The New York State Department of Health implements the CACFP at the state level.
The current system, the NYS CACFP Information and Payment System (CIPS), handles the application and processing of claims for reimbursement to approximately 1,400 sponsoring organizations. CIPS has been in use for almost a decade and was built on technology that is reaching obsolescence.
As the CACFP continues to evolve, the Department needs a technical solution to efficiently and effectively support the CACFP’s expanding needs. In addition, the CACFP systems will continue to change and the contractor is expected to reevaluate the current state to see if any changes have occurred for consideration during the design of the solution.
For a description of goals and objectives of the needed System Modernization, see https://www.health.ny.gov/funding/rfp/20007/20007.pdf#page=7.
