The State of Maryland and the US Virgin Islands (USVI) are working to replace the current paper-based benefit issuance systems with an electronic benefit transfer ("EBT") system, e-WIC. This e-WIC system will be an on-line, outsourced solution for both Maryland and the USVI.
Separate e-WIC systems will be developed and implemented for Maryland and for the USVI by the same e-WIC Processor. However, since both programs utilize the same MIS, there are synergies that can be realized via the common elements of each system.
Design, development and testing, including the User Acceptance Test ("UAT") will be completed concurrently for both systems. Following a successful UAT, Maryland will implement a three-month pilot, followed by a staggered statewide rollout. The USVI pilot will commence midway through the Maryland rollout.
Maryland is seeking a provider of quality assurance ("QA") services to evaluate, assess, recommend, and track progress of the implementation of e-WIC systems in Maryland and the USVI. QA evaluation shall include, but is not limited to, cost, schedule, scope, quality, accuracy, completeness, timeliness, and consistency of deliverables by the e-WIC Processor throughout the e-WIC project lifecycle.
