FACES is the District of Columbia’s Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System. The system was implemented in October 1999, and has been operational since that date. This document is in response to ACF’s request regarding specific information about the FACES financial system.
The products listed below were submitted by states in support of SACWIS development activities. With the permission of the submitting states, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is making these products available to all states as examples demonstrating different approaches, formats, designs, and solutions. Their inclusion on the NRC-CWDT website does not imply an endorsement by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) / Children’s Bureau (CB). Because practices and policies vary between states, one state’s design may not be suitable for wholesale adoption by another state. However, states report that seeing ideas from other states helps guide their own efforts. We encourage states to review these examples culled from “real-life” SACWIS projects and benefit from the lessons learned by other states.ACF notes that neither submitting states nor their vendors are obliged to provide support and/or technical assistance for these products.
