The ALERT system is a fraud-detection, decision-support system designed to monitor and track electronically conducted retail transactions completed by Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) recipients in authorized meal program and food retailer locations. The ALERT system facilitates management of the program by providing transaction-level information to the federal personnel responsible for SNAP retailer management and compliance activities.
