The Public Assistance Reporting Information System (PARIS) is a data matching program between the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) and State Public Assistance Agencies (SPAA).
The purpose of this matching program is to identify Public Assistance(g) recipients receiving Public Assistance (PA) benefits in one or more states. The Public Assistance Reporting Information System (PARIS) data matches help identify improper payments and minimize fraud and abuse.
Quarterly each year, in March, June, September, and December, all of the following are completed:
State Public Assistance Agencies (SPAA) provide a file of all active NA and CA recipients to the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC).
DMDC completes and identifies matching demographic data between the files.
DMDC sends the SPAA a PARIS Interstate Match Report.
For the state of Arizona, PARIS matches the Social Security Number (SSN) and date of birth of each adult participant in the budgetary unit against the participating SPAA files. When the demographic data matches and the other state’s NA or CA benefit start date is prior to the benefit start date in Arizona, the PARIS Interstate Match Report is created and sent to FAA Systems.
When a PARIS match is made for an active NA or CA participant, it is considered unclear information(g). FAA completes all of the following:
Reviews the information against the current case information.
Determines whether additional verification is required. See Verifying Reported Changes for more information.
