To provide sufficient oversight of county CWS agencies with delegated authority to license foster homes, Social Services should complete comprehensive reviews of these agencies’ licensing activities at least once every three years.

1-Year Agency Response

Social Services completed nine of the 13 county licensing reviews in 2011 that its departmental standards require. Based on information from 2008, 2009, and 2010, these nine reviews represent an improvement on previous years’ performance. In 2012 Social Services doubled this output by completing 18 county licensing reviews (two of these reviews were scheduled for completion in December 2012). (See 2013-406, p. 117)
