This Bulletin was originally developed in 1998 to guide Lead Agencies as they began preparing for required data submission at the onset of the CCDF program. This revision of the Bulletin focuses on what a State/Territory must do if they make changes to their approved plan for data submission, or if they change from submitting sample data to full population data.
