We appreciate the spirit of the changes ODJFS has made to CPOE 12 and the goal to provide child welfare agencies the opportunity to improve performance prior to a more extensive casework evaluation. We appreciate the emphasis on collaboration between ODJFS and PCSAs and Title IV-E Courts to identify areas for performance improvement and cooperatively develop a Plan for Practice Advancement (PPA) which will then be implemented and evaluated over the course of the CPOE review. However, we believe CPOE 12 to be a “next step” and sincerely hope the work will not stop there. As we move through the CPOE 12 process, we encourage ODJFS to form an advisory group made up of representative PCSAs and IV-E Courts to further redesign the CPOE process to a robust quality improvement tool that significantly advances children services practice.
