State Improper Authorizations for Payment Report
Executive Summary

The 2010 State Improper Authorizations for Payment Report was submitted by the California Department of Education, Child Development Division to the Office of Child Care, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). This triennial report is a requirement of all states receiving federal Child Care and Development Funds (CCDF) and is prepared pursuant to directions received from the Office of Child Care, DHHS, implementing 45 CFR Part 98, Subpart K–Error Rate Reporting. 

This is California’s second report submitted pursuant to 45 CFR Part 98, Subpart K, and covers federal fiscal year 2010.

The Office of Child Care, DHHS, directs states to select a sample of cases subject to CCDF rules and to review those cases for errors using federal forms and standards. Based on an analysis of each case in the sample, states report estimated error rates to the DHHS who, in turn, reports those rates to Congress. States must also set error rate reduction targets for subsequent reporting cycles.

In June 2008, California submitted its first report covering federal fiscal year 2007. The report estimated a statewide error rate of 16 percent, and set a target error rate of 11 percent for the current reporting cycle. The attached report estimates the current statewide error rate at 6 percent, constituting a 62.5 percent reduction in the incidence of errors since our last report.
