State dealing with major computer crash

Posted: May 31, 2013 - 12:11am

JUNEAU — A weekend power outage is being blamed for the crash of a state computer system.

The Department of Administration on Thursday said major programs affected by the crash include child support and foster care payments, the Alaska Temporary Assistance Program, the Senior Benefits Program, Medicaid provider payments and unemployment insurance benefit payments.

No timeline was given for completion of repairs but department spokesman Andy Mills said in an email that the system was back online Thursday afternoon. He said the next step was to deal with the backlog.

Mills said complex computer systems are designed to be continuously operating for years. He said a sudden loss of power can cause them to crash.
