The Deloitte developed welfare delivery system for the state of Michigan has been recognized with a national award for outstanding achievement from the Center for Digital Government. The award honors outstanding agency and department websites and applications.
“We helped Michigan fundamentally change the way they do business while simultaneously improving their ability to serve the state’s most vulnerable children and families,” said Dr. Wade Horn, director, Deloitte Consulting LLP.”We’re proud of that fact, and privileged to have implemented, maintained and enhanced eligibility and self-service applications for 22 states.”
The integrated eligibility and payment system, Bridges, assists Michigan case workers in administering public assistance benefits. It was one of seven federal and state projects cited this year for excellence in the ‘government-to-citizen’ category, according to the news release. Bridges was also recognized this year with a distinguished award from the National Association of State CIOs.
