Public comment is now being accepted on an outline of a proposed policy to direct the response of the Office of Children’s Services to findings of non-compliance by local CSA programs. The policy is outlined in concept on the CSA website under the “Public Comments” header; comments are being accepted on the same page. The public comment period closes May 15. The State Executive Council is scheduled to review public comments later this year and release the text of the proposed policy for additional public comment in June.
The intent of the proposed policy is to formalize existing procedures for steps to be taken by the Office of Children’s Services when an audit finds non-compliance with state or federal laws, regulations, or agency policy.
If counties submit comments on the proposed policy, VACo would appreciate receiving a copy, which may be sent to Katie Boyle (firstname.lastname@example.org).
