Below please find links to the CCDF Resource Manual which is a tremendous resource to state agency administrators as they are busy complying with the standards of the Child Care Development Fund. The Office of Child Care has done a wonderful job in putting in one place a ton of resources that are readily available.
The second link is a series of papers that present the algorithms for putting in place a differential monitoring system. It provides all the details for state agency Information Technology (IT) staff to get such a system up and running. Again it provides one stop shopping for state administrators if they are interested in developing such a system.
