Senate: Funding is provided for information technology services and upgrades to FamLink in order to meet federal compliance for Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information Systems (SACWIS). FamLink is the case management system at Children's Administration. The federal Administration for Children and Families (ACF) conducted an assessment that identified necessary changes to meet SACWIS compliance. Lack of compliance could result in withdrawal of federal dollars used to develop FamLink.
Final: Funding is provided for information technology modifications to the FamLink system that are necessary to comply with federal regulations. These modifications are expected to increase data integrity, support social work practice, and avoid a potential loss of federal funds.
