What principles did the group operate under for making recommendations?

The group established principles in its first meeting to help guide the on-going work. These were:

  • Keep recommendations simple
  • Consider data sources and use existing data whenever possible
  • Need to minimize data collection burden on States
  • Share what we do with rest of CBCAP leads for input
  • Recognize that recommendations sent forward are subject to review and approval by ACF/HHS/OMB and we do not have a lot of control on that part of the process
  • Only recommend the minimum outcomes and efficiency measures for inclusion in the formal OMB PART
  • Continue to work on beginning to collect and analyze the data from the other recommended CBCAP outcome measures in the meantime.
