State Data Exchange Model Agreements

State Model Agreements for State Administration of Federally-Funded and State-Funded Benefit Programs

Federally- Funded and State Administered

  • Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act (CMPPA) Agreement – Agreement between SSA and the state or state agency that covers all the essential provisions needed for a computer matching agreement, i.e., follows the requirements of the CMPPA of 1988.  There are two CMPPA Model agreements:  CMPPA State Level and CMPPA Agency Level.
  • Information Exchange Agreement/Federal (IEA/F) – Agreement between SSA and the state or state agency that accompanies the State Level or Agency Level CMPPA agreement, i.e., the CMPPA agreement is an attachment to the IEA/F.  The IEA/F describes in additional detail the type of data SSA discloses for the program(s) specified in the agreement, as well as the authorized data exchange system(s), data delivery method, and additional security requirements.  There are two IEA/F Model agreements:  IEA/F State Level and IEA/F Agency Level.

State – Funded and State Administered

  • Information Exchange Agreement/State (IEA/S) – A stand-alone agreement between SSA and the state or state agency that contains the same detailed information in the IEA/F, with the exception that this agreement covers state-funded, state-administered programs.  There are two IEA/S Model agreements:  IEA/S State Level and IEA/S Agency Level.  The current number of IEA/S agreements are static; any new requests for SSA data for the administration of state-funded, state administered benefit programs will require reimbursement and the use of the R-IEA.  
  • Reimbursable Information Exchange Agreement (R-IEA) – Agreement between SSA and the state agency for the state agency’s administration of state-funded programs (as identified in the agreement).  There is a charge to the state agency for the SSA data provided under this agreement; SSA must seek reimbursement for the costs of performing data exchanges for the state agency’s administration of state-funded programs.
