Beginning in fiscal year (FY) 2010, the T/TA Network will comprise a group of 30 T/TA providers funded entirely or partially by the Children’s Bureau through grants, contracts, and interagency agreements. The cross-site evaluation uses a mixed-method, longitudinal approach to examine the ICs (funded in FY 2009) and a new cohort of NRCs (funded in FY 2010). Proposed data collection methods are a longitudinal telephone survey of State child welfare directors (or their designees) and Tribal Child Welfare/ Social Service Directors (or their designees), a Web-based survey of State and Tribal T/TA recipients, and aggregation of outputs from a Web-based technical assistance tracking system (OneNet) that will be used by the five ICs and 11 NRCs. A Web-based survey will be also administered to members of the T/TA Network. Data collected through these instruments will be used by the Children’s Bureau to evaluate the effectiveness of technical assistance delivered to State, local, Tribal, and other publicly administered or publicly supported child welfare agencies and family and juvenile courts and the overall functioning of the T/TA Network. Respondents: Respondents to two of the survey instruments will be State and Tribal governments. Respondents to the third survey will be private institutions, including universities, not-for-profit organizations, and private companies.

sponsored by the Children's Bureau, Administration for Children and 
Families of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and 
involves the conduct of a five-year, cross-site evaluation that 
examines the effectiveness of the ICs' and NRCs' activities and service 
provision and the relation of their training and technical assistance 
activities to organizational and systems change in State and Tribal 
child welfare systems. Additionally, the evaluation will examine the 
degree to which networking, collaboration, information sharing,

The Children's Bureau desires to assess the quality and effectiveness 
of the technical assistance it supports, and several of these programs 
and projects are required to be evaluated, including those funded under 
Section 105 of The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, as amended

agreements.
    The cross-site evaluation uses a mixed-method, longitudinal 
approach to examine the ICs (funded in FY 2009) and a new cohort of

recipients, and aggregation of outputs from a Web-based technical

by the Children's Bureau to evaluate the effectiveness of technical 
assistance delivered to State, local, Tribal, and other publicly 
administered or publicly supported child welfare agencies and family 
and juvenile courts and the overall functioning of the T/TA Network.

State and Tribal governments. Respondents to the third survey will be 
private institutions, including universities, not-for-profit
