Introduction and Observations
The Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP) Quality Control Accuracy Report
provides monthly summary quality control data for the federal fiscal year which runs from
October through September. The report focuses on case and payment accuracy and
highlights problem areas. Assuring payment accuracy demonstrates Minnesota’s
commitment to excellent stewardship of taxpayer dollars through improved benefit
accuracy and reduced fraud. It also demonstrates a commitment to excellent customer
service by insuring that customers applying for MFIP receive the benefits they are
entitled to. Reported errors are for the cash portion of the MFIP grant where error
dollars are in excess of $25. Food portion errors are reported on the Food Support
Accuracy Report.

Federal Fiscal Year 2008 Trends (October 2007 – September 2008):

Quality Control Case Review Completion Rate as of September 2008:
   • 230 MFIP quality control case reviews were completed.
   • 13 cases or 6% of subject to review cases were not completed, primarily due to
        client non-cooperation with the QC process.
   • The completion rate for cases subject to review was: Hennepin County – 95%,
        Ramsey County – 94%, and for the other counties of the state – 95%.

Error Cases and Error Dollars as of September 2008:
    • There were 28 error cases for $4,202 error dollars.
    • The MFIP payment error rate was 5.8%. Payment error rates for the four prior
       years were: FFY 2007 – 4.2%; FFY 2006 – 4.6%; FFY 2005 – 7.1%; and FFY
       2004 – 6.3%.
    • The MFIP case error rate was 12%. Case error rates for the four prior years
       were: FFY 2007 – 10.3%; FFY 2006 – 13.6%; FFY 2005 – 13.3%; and FFY2004
       – 11%.

Agency and Client Errors as of September 2008:
   • 17 error cases were agency caused, for $2,174 error dollars.
   • 11 error cases were client caused, for $2028 error dollars.
   • Of the agency errors, the single largest cause, at 28% of all error cases ( 8 of 28
      cases), resulted from “Reported information disregarded” which totaled $788
      error dollars, or 18% of all error dollars.
   • Of the client caused errors, 8 error cases were caused by “Information not
      reported” (28%; 8 of 28) and totaled $1,496 error dollars, or 35.60% of all error
      dollars.

Error Case List and Error Eligibility Categories as of September 2008:
    • The case error list categorizes errors by their main error element.
    • Cash Overissuance errors continued to be the major error area, with 78% of
       all error cases, and 82% of all error dollars.
    • The two leading causes for errors were “Information Not
       Reported” by the client (8 cases) and “Reported
       information Disregarded” by the agency (8 cases).
