D. Monitoring of the SSCC by DFPS

Rather than serve in its traditional role in CBC areas, DFPS will act as a quality oversight and assurance division to ensure contract compliance, conduct assessments of fiscal and qualitative performance of the SSCC and vendors, and create and administer a dispute resolution process. DFPS must also monitor the transfer of case management services through this division, and has the statutory authority to review, approve, or disapprove a contractor's recommendation with respect to a child's permanency goal, but it is not clear whether DFPS will have sufficient staff to monitor this aspect.
