ANNOUNCEMENT: New Background Record Check Software (Message Posted: 03/19/2018) As a result of significant changes to Child Care Development Block Grant (CCDBG) regulations, the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) must enhance its Background Record Check requirements by September 30, 2018 with the ability to phase in certain requirements through September 30, 2020. In order to support these changes EEC is designing a new software application called “BRC Navigator” to expedite and streamline its background check processes.

The Baker-Polito Administration also recently filed legislation to comply with the federal requirements, and EEC has proposed amendments to its BRC regulations at 606 CMR 14.00 et seq. The upcoming BRC changes will apply to all child care programs licensed or approved by EEC or in receipt of CCDBG funding (i.e., in receipt of a voucher agreement or contract for subsidized child care). Five of the major changes being implemented by September 30, 2018 include the following:

  1. EEC will review all record information, including criminal and child welfare (DCF) information and will communicate directly with all candidates.
  2. Fingerprinting must occur at the beginning of the BRC process.
  3. National Sex Offender Registry (NSOR) Information checks will be implemented for child care programs (not applicable to Residential Programs and Foster Care Placement or Adoption Agencies).
  4. There will be mandatory disqualifications applied to individuals within child care programs (not applicable to Residential Programs and Foster Care Placement or Adoption Agencies).
  5. Family child care providers, assistants, household members, and persons regularly on the premises must have their consent forms notarized
This chart of the upcoming changes to EEC's Background Record Check requirements provides important information on how the changes will apply to the different types of EEC-licensed or funded programs.
 
Transition of IT Systems to New Platform: Status and Update (Message Posted: 08/23/2018) As you may be aware, several of the Department of Early Education and Care's (EEC) IT systems were recently transitioned to a new host platform, as part of a larger migration of state IT systems to cloud-based servers.

With the transition of the system to a cloud-based platform, you must now use EEC's Single Sign-In to access any of these applications:

  • Professional Qualifications Registry
  • Electronic Child Care Information Management System (eCCIMS)
  • Professional Teacher Qualifications Certification (TQ)
  • Background Record Check (BRC) Manager
  • Licensing Manager
  • Quality Rating and Improvement System (QRIS) Program Manager
  • KinderWait
  • Professional Development Calendar
Please also note that the transition to the cloud was unrelated to EEC's current work to develop a new Background Record Check application that will replace the BRC Manager. EEC will share additional information about changes to the BRC system and process in the coming weeks.

EEC is committed to ensuring that all licensed or funded programs have access to the IT systems they need to deliver the best possible services to children and families. Thank you for your patience and support during this important period.
