STATE OF WISCONSIN
As you are aware, the Division of Children and Family Services is currently in the midst of an automation project charged with the development and implementation of an automated child welfare system. While this system is targeted for initial implementation for the Bureau of Milwaukee Child Welfare, it is collaboratively being designed for statewide implementation.
To leverage the momentum, experience and efficiencies of the current project team, statewide responsibility is consolidated under the umbrella of the existing WiSACWIS project office. Retaining the continuity and structure of the current project team is critical to being able to effectively manage an increased project scope. Joyce Rose will continue to lead the WiSACWIS project office, including the statewide responsibilities. Dennis Kirchoff will continue to work on important statewide implementation planning tasks as part of the WiSACWIS project office team.
It is my expectation that the entire WiSACWIS team serve as a positive catalyst in our continuing commitment to achieving project success. Please do not hesitate to contact either Joyce or myself with any questions or concerns. Thank you.
