This documentation review is an examination of the title IV-E agency’s translation of data from its child welfare information system into an AFCARS report. The review evaluates whether the logic specified in mapping documents is consistent with Federal guidance and, should the State desire, an examination of how accurately the program code implements the requirements laid out in the mapping documents.
Following the onsite technical assistance, a detailed report that includes findings and recommendations will be provided to the TA recipient. The NRC-CWDT will be available to provide ongoing support as the State prioritizes and implements changes.
Technical assistance will be customized to meet the agency’s needs, and may include onsite meetings, conference calls and webinars, and/or peer consultation. We strongly encourage technical, data and program staff from the State or Tribe to participate in the technical assistance. Requests for on-site technical assistance must be approved in advance by the appropriate Children’s Bureau Regional Office, however, consultation with the NRC-CWDT is welcome and encouraged.
