16 MNCIS data entry requirements to ensure accurate LOTP report for your county 16

17 In order for your county’s cases to appear on the Length of Time to Permanency (LOTP) performance measure report, data in the following MNCIS fields must be filled in and accurate: Child’s name and date of birth (use same party record for CHIPS and CHIPS-Permanency) Child’s race ICWA cases must include:  “Special condition flag” on child’s party record  “Case flag” on case record  Tribal representative 17 MNCIS Fields Requiring Accuracy for LOTP Report

18 (continued) Placement tab must ALWAYS have something entered (the child is always somewhere, either home or with other parent or in foster care) The judgment on the disposition tab must ALWAYS:  Be an appropriate judgment for the case type  Be connected to child(ren)  Be connected to parent(s)  Be connected to the judge who ordered disposition  Specify “order date” and “start date”  Include placement component 18 MNCIS Fields Requiring Accuracy for LOTP Report

19 In order for your county’s cases to appear on future performance measure reports, data in the following MNCIS fields must be filled in and accurate: Case security: confidential GAL name and professional flag on GAL party record Adjudicated or adjudication withheld date Case plan or out-of-home placement plan case event Foster parent listed on party tab AND connected on placement tab Must have a hearing pending 19 MNCIS Fields Requiring Accuracy for Future Reports

20 Case Initiation Process – CHIPS 20

21 21 Case “security” is confidential, although the records in the court file are accessible to the public. If the child is an Indian Child, include the ICWA “case flag.” Add the tribe in the comment line when adding the case flag. The ICWA flag appears next to the case style on all MNCIS tabs.

22 22 Effective August 1, mothers and fathers of Indian children must be identified as parties. Relate all parties and participants to the child(ren). Be sure to search for existing party record MNCIS before adding a new party. When initiating CHIPS- Permanency case, use same party records as used in CHIPS case. For parties who have a professional role, select the party record with the Professional Flag attached. Do not add the GAL as the child – just connect the GAL to the child.

23 23 Add the ICWA “Special Condition Flag “to the party record of each Indian child, along with an obsolete date equal to the child’s 18 th birthday.

24 24 Once the “ICWA Special Condition Flag” has been added to the child’s party record, it will appear next to the party name. For cases with an Indian child, add the tribe or tribal representative to the case as a party.
