Find out which states are beginning to upgrade their child welfare information systems in response to new regulations from the Administration for Children and Families (ACF).

Last year, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) issued the Comprehensive Child Welfare Information System (CCWIS) regulation, prompting many states to initiate procurements to upgrade their child welfare systems or seek fully-compliant replacement systems in order to receive additional federal funding. Several states are in the midst of procurements, including California, Colorado, Connecticut, DC and Michigan. Many more states are in the planning stages and currently designing their procurement strategies.

In May 2016, ACF published a table showing the current status of each state's child welfare information system and whether a state is planning to pursue a new or transitional CCWIS. This table will help vendors target states that intend to invest in their child welfare information technology.

The Market Brief also highlights upcoming opportunities and helps vendors target states who have indicated their interest in moving forward with child welfare IT upgrades.
