The improvements to the CPSS system are intended to provide the state with a foundation that
will support child protective and family preservation services for the
next ten years and beyond.
The system will be available 24 x 7 x 365 and available remotely using a
browser. The system is designed to incorporate the Federal Government SACWIS
requirements, all State unique requirements, and many additional features to
take advantage of technology in improving our support services. It will be
designed and developed in modules to facilitate development and testing,
as well as changes during development and as rules change and new features
are added in the future.
The new system will be designed to go from simply delivering reports to
enabling interactive analysis and information sharing that can be integrated
into everyday business processes. Performance measurements will be generated
by unit as part of our quality assurance and continuous quality improvement
and used to monitor each unit’s progress toward achieving department goals.
