Who will manage data clean-up. I.E. if one state submits a suspicious actor and another state has a legitimate claim for that same individual, who owns the right to 'correct' the data?

Each state will "own" the data they submit. Both states would have different unique IDs. If there is a suspicious actor and a legitimate claim, the states should work together, along with NASWA, to determine action to be taken. Records can be removed as appropriate by the submitting state.

Will it be possible and permissible to use the system to perform random inquiries? That is, inquiries where there may not be any suspicion of fraudulent activity.

Yes, that is possible. Currently states are submitting claims data, both initial and continued, to perform lookups. The majority of those are not considered suspicious but are being used to check for any matches in the SAR database.

Do you plan to allow TPAs and/or employer stakeholders access to SAR at some point?

Access to IDH-SAR is currently restricted to state workforce agencies. As additional data sources are made available access may be broadened to include TPAs and/or employers as appropriate.

Do you maintain any records for suspicious businesses?

Not currently, but we are pursuing access to the IRS listing of suspicious FEINs.

Is there a PDF of this presentation or other overview material we can get to share with decision makers at our SWA?

The webinar recording and associated presentation will be posted on the Integrity Center website. In addition, your designated State Liaison can provide overview briefings and other information on the Data Hub.

Are entities other than State UI agencies permitted to submit to the data Hub for hits?

Access to the Data Hub is currently restricted to state UI agencies. However, we are exploring potential relationships with other programs and agencies.
