JUNEAU- The Department of Administration says computer systems that crashed over the weekend, affecting some major aid programs, are up and running again.
   
In a release Friday, the department said technicians working overnight were able to restore service to systems responsible for automated payments and check processing.
   
The department, in announcing the crash Thursday, said major programs affected included child support and foster care payments, the Alaska Temporary Assistance Program, the Senior Benefits Program, Medicaid provider payments and unemployment insurance benefit payments.
   
A power outage was blamed for the crash.
   
The department on Friday said delayed direct deposits should be in accounts by Monday, with checks expected to be delivered early next week.
