Title IV-E Reviews — Peer Reviewer Information and Recruitment

Published: March 12, 2015
Title IV-E

The Children's Bureau conducts Title IV-E Foster Care Eligibility Reviews (IV-E Reviews) of Title IV-E agencies to help monitor the agency's compliance in meeting federally mandated requirements, to validate the accuracy of the agency's claims for reimbursement of Title IV-E payments made on behalf of children in foster care, and to identify improper payments. Qualified Peer Reviewers serve on review teams comprised primarily of federal and Title IV-E agency staff during each IV-E Review. For further information on the IV-E Reviews, refer to the Title IV-E Foster Care Eligibility Reviews Fact Sheet.

The IV-E Reviews are on-site reviews that last up to 5 days. Peer Reviewers participate in document reviews of foster care case records and related files; daily and/or final debriefings; and entrance and exit conferences. Peer Reviewers receive reimbursement for participating in training (up to 3 hours), review planning calls, time spent on site (up to 5 days), and travel and per diem costs associated with the IV-E Reviews. Peer reviewers must complete the prerequisite training for selection as a Peer Reviewer.
