Emergency Justification:Accordance with Administrative Rule: To prevent or minimize serious disruption to critical State services that affect health, safety, or collection of substantial State revenues. System changes must be completely immediately; if the programming is not properly completed, IDES' unemployment compensation system (IBIS) will not be able to correctly calculate and pay federally funded unemployment compensation benefits. Following the normal procurement process will not allow the Agency to meet the federal requirements. DSN and EKI provided the current programming for EUC, currently provide Java resources under other initiatives, have knowledge of the IBIS system and can provide these resources needed to expeditiously implement the required changes. Without the system changes, there would be a serious disruption in State services, service delivery to claimants, and federal statutory requirements would not be met. Providing effective reemployment and benefit services and minimizing improper payments are high priorities for the USDOL and its partners and IDES.
Accordance with Admin Rule:Danger to public health/safety
