Accenture has won a contract to develop a new system for the state of Ohio’s health and human services program to determine eligibility of citizens for benefits.

The contract contains 66 base months and Ohio is aiming to centralize the process of determining which citizens are eligible for benefits programs, Accenture said Tuesday.

Julie Booth, head of Accenture’s North American human services practice, said the state wants to modernize services it delivers to taxpayers, state workers and citizens.

Goals of the project include giving beneficiaries online access to service options and helping state agencies and offices share data and enlist more people to the program.

Accenture will deliver its public service platform, benefits management system and citizen self-service portal to Ohio for the project.

Ohio is aiming to comply with federal requirements and support programs other than Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, according to the company.
