This action was developed to assist CSBs in response to their concerns over timeframes for documentation of ISPs. However 10 CSBs commented stating the draft language would interfere with the ability of case managers (support coordinators) to meet the expectations for oversight of services as indicated in the Settlement Agreement between the United States Department of Justice and Virginia (United States of America v. Commonwealth of Virginia, Civil Action No. 3:12cv059-JAG) because the language would prevent the case managers (support coordinators) an opportunity to review the provider quarterly reports and synthesize the information as needed. Therefore, it is prudent to allow time for further discussion of the language to resolve concerns.
