Statewide Intake Policy and Procedures
Handbook Revision
August 2009

This revision of the SWI Procedures Handbook was published on August 3, 2009. Summaries of new or revised items are provided below.

Changes to Intake Actions Page for CPS Intakes

CPS has requested a change to a field on the Intake Actions page for CPS intakes in IMPACT (SIR 27162). This change helps ensure that CPS intakes are classified correctly for the CPS field staff who are responsible for screening them after SWI sends them. As a result of this change, SWI staff will select "yes" to the open case question only if there is an open CPS case in the INV, FBSS, FSU, or FRE stage at the time the intake is taken. See:

4931 CPS Screener Eligibility Question

Incidents at APS MH&MR Facilities That Do Not Involve Abuse, Neglect, or Exploitation
