OMB No.: 0970–0159. Description: The Department of Health and Human Services cannot fulfill its obligation to effectively serve the nation’s adoption and foster care populations, nor report meaningful and reliable information to Congress about the extent of problems facing these children or the effectiveness of assistance provided to this population, without access to timely and accurate information. Currently, SACWIS supports State efforts to meet the following Federal reporting requirements: the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) required by section 479(b)(2) of the Social Security Act; the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS); Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA); and the Chafee Independent Living Program. These systems also support State efforts to provide the information to conduct the Child and Family Services Reviews. Currently, forty-five States and the District of Columbia have developed, or are developing, a SACWIS with Federal financial participation. The purpose of these reviews is to ensure that all aspects of the project, as described in 21203 the approved Advance Planning Document, have been adequately completed, and conform to applicable regulations and policies. To initiate a review, States will submit the completed SACWIS Assessment Review Guide (SARGE) and other documentation at the point that they have completed system development and the system is operational statewide. The additional documents submitted as part of this process should all be readily available to the State as a result of good project management practices. The information collected in the SACWIS Assessment Review Guide will allow State and Federal officials to determine if the State’s SACWIS meets the requirements for title IV–E Federal Financial Participation (FFP) defined at 45 CFR 1355.50. Additionally, other States will be able to use the documentation provided as part of this review process in their own system development efforts. Respondents: State Title IV–E Agencies.
