Future Build Number/ Tentative Date  Initiative NameInitiative Description
December 10, 2020
Adoption Subsidy 
The Adoption Subsidy functionality has been redesigned to 
align better with current practice and policy. Agencies will be 
able to determine a child’s eligibility prior to going into 
negotiations with an adoptive parent.  Agencies will have the 
option to withdraw an application if the subsidy cannot be 
completed, will be given a calculated Monthly Maintenance 
Cost of Care amount based on previous placement 
payments for the child. Nonrecurring will be separated into 
its own left hand navigation as well as an improved 
workflow within this work item to align better with the 
Adoption Subsidy functionality.  All subsidies and reviews 
will have an approval process to verify the amounts being 
issued.  This initiative will also resolve current system 
defects and update the user interface. 
The purpose of this project is to implement a SACWIS 
Interactive reporting solution  The new functionality 
will include populating provider placement match options 
for children in custody on a visual interactive map in 
real time in SACWIS for queries from caseworkers.   
  Cognos Upgrade     Cognos will be upgraded from version 11.0.9 to
version 11.1.5.
 T&M DefectsThe initiative incorporates a body of work across all modules 
of the application that the SACWIS Project Team addressed 
over several months.  These are miscellaneous defects that 
are not directly related to any major stand-alone project
