Description

The Delaware WIC Program seeks to modernize the benefit delivery system by replacing the paper FI’s with electronic issuance of benefits using on-line magnetic card technology to redeem those benefits at a point of sale (POS). This electronic benefit delivery system, hereafter referred to as eWIC, involves the use of an electronic food prescription that specifies authorized food items, quantities, the time period within which the food items must be purchased, and the maximum value associated with these purchases. These electronic benefits are maintained in an account which is set-up for all the benefit recipients within a household.

The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals to provide online WIC EBT services. The Delaware WIC Program seeks an existing online WIC EBT system from an experienced WIC EBT Contractor.

The purpose of this project is to develop and implement the business processes and associated technology to provide electronic benefit issuance, redemption, payment, settlement and reconciliation services supporting the distribution of electronic WIC food benefits in the State of Delaware.
