The OCIO has entered into an purchase agreement with Melissa Data to get access to their Address Validation Web Service product called Personator. Customers wishing to use the new offering should reach out to OCIO to obtain an API key. The following are some reference sites on how to help you implement Personator.Personator in your application or have questions answers should your run into issues. OCIO does not offer technical support for the real-time address verification service.

OCIO will yearly purchase a bulk number of lookups as part of a State of Iowa account and allow by the use of API keys other agencies to do lookups against the bulk number. OCIO will bill each API key owner monthly for all usage by their API key. The amount billed will be a direct pass though of the actual cost per lookup based on the total bulk price. OCIO will not add any additional fees on top of this price as OCIO will have no direct involvement in this service outside of making the yearly bulk purchase.
The following are a few things you should keep in mind as you consider using the Personator service.
* Each application is responsible to code/connect to the service directly. There is no State of Iowa wrapper app like the old real-time service had because the Personator is a web service itself whereas the old service called a desktop product before.
* Each lookup against the Personator service will incur a fee. Lookup fees are based on the total purchase price of the yearly bulk purchase amount divided by number of bulk records purchased. For example the initial purchase of 100k lookups would have a per lookup call fee of $0.0355/ea. This initial 100k was just to get us going for the first month so prices should be lower when more are purchased. As more and more systems start using AVS and the State of Iowa makes larger and larger yearly bulk lookup amounts the price should come down.
