The Office of Child Care has revised the Childcare Administrator’s  Improper Payments Information Technology Guide. This inventory of childcare information systems presents information about the current level of automated technology that States have to support common childcare program and business functions. The report describes what technology is being used in each State for the following functions: access for the public, clients, and providers; eligibility determination and authorization; case management; provider licensing and management; collection of time and attendance data; payment processing and disbursement; improper payments; and automated interfaces. Highlights of innovative and emerging practices in applying technology to childcare program operations are also presented.
