eSearch was designed primarily to improve the secured access and administrative efficiency determining DC. The premise is that: if existing data from State food stamp or welfare offices was made available and used to directly certify children, more eligible children would become certified for free meals. Moreover, if the need for these children to complete applications and for district officials to process these applications were eliminated, administrative costs would be reduced. Finally, direct certification could also improve program integrity. Promoting program access among this group could increase the proportion of certified students eligible for the level of benefits they are receiving because FS/TANF/FDPIR recipients are, by definition, eligible for free meals.
