This webinar was the seventh session in the AFCARS Final Rule Training Series. For this webinar, the Children's Bureau shared two new Technical Bulletins:
Technical Bulletin 22: Reporting Population and Data Extraction
Technical Bulletin 23: Compliance and Data Quality
And a revised version of the previously released Technical Bulletin 21:File Structure and Encryption. There was also an opportunity to continue to ask questions so that the Children’s Bureau may develop relevant technical assistance resources. We encourage you to submit any questions to AFCARS@acf.hhs.gov.
This Information Memorandum (IM) informs the States of two final rules for the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) and the Statewide Automated child Welfare Information System (SACWIS).
