SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: State agencies administering SNAP are mandated to participate in a computer matching program with the federal OCSE. The matching program compares SNAP applicant and recipient information with employment and wage information maintained in the National Directory of New Hires (NDNH). The outcomes of the compared information help state SNAP agencies with verifying and determining an individual’s benefit eligibility. To receive NDNH information, state agencies enter into a computer matching agreement and adhere to its terms and conditions, including providing OCSE with annual performance outcomes that are attributable to the use of NDNH information. To fulfill OMB requirements, OCSE periodically reports performance measurements demonstrating how the use of information in the NDNH supports OCSE’s strategic mission, goals, and objectives. OCSE will provide the annual SNAP performance outcomes to OMB.
