State Systems Interoperability and Integration Project Grants
Background:
The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Partnership Fund for Program
Integrity Innovation:
The Partnership Fund for Program Integrity Innovation (the Partnership Fund) at OMB
supports pilot projects to streamline administration processes and strengthen program
integrity in federal assistance programs.
These pilots help to advance methods to improve administrative efficiency, service
delivery, and program integrity in federal government and the States to advance the
priorities of promoting innovation and federal-state cooperation.
The Partnership Fund awarded funds to HHS/ACF for the State Systems Interoperability
and Integration Project grants. HHS/ACF, through OCSE, handled the award and
ongoing monitoring of the grants.

S2I2 Project Grants
California
Purpose
Approach
To conduct research, promote awareness of
interoperability benefits, and create a Systems
Interoperability and Integration Plan.
 Study Team will conduct background research to identify current information
management landscape and investigate new data sharing opportunities.
To create a community of practice for data
sharing and develop a Governance Model for
Data Sharing.
 Convene Conferences to collaboratively develop the Systems Interoperability
and Integration Plan and Governance Model for Data Sharing.
 Prepare an Organizational Change Roadmap for Data Sharing to document a
reusable change management process that can be used by other states.
Colorado
Purpose
Approach
To build the data sharing infrastructure
required to support and sustain this
collaboration: "integrating systems and
improving services".
 Project will explore and plan for improved interoperability and integration.
 Analyze new systems, technologies and approaches to connect across
systems by leveraging existing state agency integration efforts.

deliverables in three areas: Technology, Data Exchange and
Governance Standards and The Practice of Integrating Health and
Human Services.
 Key deliverable – Social Return on Investment Calculator
New York
Purpose
Approach
To support the future design, development
and implementation (DDI) of a New York
State Children’s Passport (CP),
 Project will work with the NYS Department of Health to plan an
approach to establishing an interoperable, bi-directional information
sharing capability.
 OCFS will analyze three (3) options/alternatives to determine the
optimal approach to developing a CP for its foster care population.
