Quality Improvement Center Launched
The National Quality Improvement Center on the Privatization of Child Welfare Services (QIC PCW) is a 5-year knowledge development initiative through a cooperative agreement among the Children's Bureau, the University of Kentucky College of Social Work, and Planning and Learning Technologies, Inc. The QIC PCW's website features basic information on privatization efforts, a program description, and other resources. A listing of research activities and an online discussion board are also planned for the site.
The QIC PCW is conducting a national needs assessment and knowledge gap analysis on privatization of services. From this, a topical focus will be selected for research and demonstration projects in FY 2006–2007. Applications will be available on the website this fall.
