Governor Daniels announces termination of state’s contract with IBM for delivery of welfare services PDF Print E-mail

    Governor Mitch Daniels announced recently the state has terminated its contract with IBM for the delivery of welfare services. The contract was canceled because the company did not make satisfactory progress to improve services to welfare applicants and recipients under a plan to correct deficiencies.
    In its place, the Family and Social Services Administration will go to a hybrid system that will incorporate successful elements of the old welfare delivery system and what is known as the modernized system. The hybrid system will include more face?to?face contact and more localized team?based case management.
    “The fraud appears to have been stopped and we’re still on track to save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, but the intended service improvements have not been delivered, and that’s not acceptable,” said Daniels. “Those who raised concerns about service quality were correct and we appreciate their efforts. We’ll now take the best parts of the old and new and move ahead with a hybrid system in what amounts to a major mid?course correction.”
