Early Alert

Early Alert is a process to proactively identify providers that may show signs of decreased quality, enabling OPWDD to take timely and definitive action.



Fiscal Reporting
The Consolidated Fiscal Report (CFR) is required to be completed by service providers that receive funding from several state agencies including the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities. The CFR consists of schedules which, in different combinations, capture financial information for budgets, quarterly and/or mid-year claims, an annual cost report, and a final claim.
