ACS handles the state of Ohio's automated system for paying and tracking child care providers.  An ACS mistake meant that over 8,000 providers were mailed letters with Social Security numbers visible from the outside of the envelope.  Some of the providers were childcare centers and only had ID numbers revealed; smaller providers who had their Social Security numbers as IDs face a greater risk.
