(a) The State Department of Social Services shall be responsible for procuring and implementing a new Case Management Information and Payroll System (CMIPS) for the In-Home Supportive Services Program and Personal Care Services Program (IHSS/PCSP). This section shall not be interpreted to transfer any of the IHSS/PCSP policy responsibilities from the State Department of Social Services or the State Department of Health Care Services.

(b) At a minimum, the new system shall provide case management, payroll, and management information in order to support the IHSS/PCSP, and shall do all of the following:

(1) Provide current and accurate information in order to manage the IHSS/PCSP caseload.

(2) Calculate accurate wage and benefit deductions.

(3) Provide management information to monitor and evaluate the IHSS/PCSP.

(4) Coordinate benefits information and processing with the California Medicaid Management Information System.

(c) The new system shall be consistent with current state and federal laws, shall incorporate technology that can be readily enhanced and modernized for the expected life of the system, and, to the extent possible, shall employ open architectures and standards.

(d) By August 31, 2004, the State Department of Social Services shall begin a fair and open competitive procurement for the new CMIPS. All state agencies shall cooperate with the State Department of Social Services and the California Health and Human Services Agency Data Center to expedite the procurement, design, development, implementation, and operation of the new CMIPS.

(e) The State Department of Social Services, with any necessary assistance from the State Department of Health Care Services, shall seek all federal approvals and waivers necessary to secure federal financial participation and system design approval of the new system.

(f) The new CMIPS shall include features to strengthen fraud prevention and detection, as well as to reduce overpayments. Program requirements shall include, but shall not be limited to, the ability to readily identify out-of-state providers, recipient hospital stays that are five days or longer, and excessive hours paid to a single provider, and to match recipient information with death reports. This functionality shall be available by April 1, 2010, and implemented statewide by July 1, 2011.
