The State of Nevada Purchasing Division on behalf of the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is seeking a vendor to provide Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) services and Cash Benefits for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for State of Nevada and Inter Tribal Council of Nevada Women, Infants, and Children (WIC); the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP); and the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) Program. Nevada is also seeking a vendor who can provide web-based applications for mobile notification services.
The EBT and Cash Benefit systems will result in as little disruption or change as possible to the current card system operations for the WIC Programs, SNAP, and TANF in Nevada. The RFP will result in a contract between the EBT Contractor and the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) for WIC EBT services and a second contract between the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) for SNAP and TANF EBT and Cash Benefit services. The contracts will replace existing contracts with Fidelity Information Services (FIS). Custom Data Process (CDP) is a subcontractor for Fidelity Information Services that provides EBT services to this program.
The purpose of the RFP is to procure an experienced EBT system contractor to transfer their system to the Nevada WIC Programs (the State and ITCN WIC Programs), SNAP EBT operations, and TANF Cash Benefit operations. The anticipated contracts start date is approximately June 30, 2018. It is anticipated that the EBT contractor will operate the system in the involved Nevada programs for a time period up to eight (8) years, the maximum amount of time allotted by the State’s Purchasing Division.
