What is SACWIS?

SACWIS stands for Statewide Automated Child Welfare Information System.  A SACWIS is a comprehensive, automated case management tool that supports child welfare practice. It is intended to hold a state’s official case record, which includes a complete, current, accurate, and unified case management history on all children and families served by the state’s or tribe’s title IV-B and title IV-E entities. SACWIS also supports the reporting of the data for both the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis Review System (AFCARS) and the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), a voluntary national data collection and analysis system.
