SACWIS Assessment Reviews

After a state's automated child welfare system is operational, the Division of State Systems (DSS) conducts a review to assess the system's compliance to Federal regulations. SACWIS data are used to support the State’s policy and practice and their data requirements and Federal reporting, such as Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS), National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD), National Child Abuse and Data System (NCANDS) and the Child and Family Services Review (CFSR) process.
