Data Broker

HHSC contracts with a Data Broker vendor to provide financial and
other background information about SNAP, TANF and Medicaid
applicants and recipients. The vendor collects and combines
information from multiple sources into one report.

Staff may also request a credit report before the initial interview only
on the individual who signed the agency’s application form, or for
individuals for whom assistance is requested on the agency’s
application form.

Agency users of Data Broker must successfully complete the initial
web-based training and assessment(s) for the appropriate program
area. Once training is successfully completed, the user automatically
has access to the Data Broker interface in both TIERS and the Data
Broker stand-alone system.
