The Department of Children and Families introduced new scorecards in the past two years to better track and evaluate how our programs and regions are performing in a variety of measures, including child welfare, child care, business organizations and more. These scorecards are updated frequently with the latest available information.

- Child Welfare Dashboard
The public release of the Child Welfare Dashboard is part of the Department’s Child Welfare Results-Oriented Accountability implementation initiative. These dashboards provide the public access to an interactive dashboard experience utilizing Tableau visualization software that includes a home page that offers child welfare statistics at a glance where users can then interface deeper into current and historical data on topics that include allegations accepted by the Florida Abuse Hotline for child protective investigation, children that are included in protective investigations, children that receive services, child removal rates, and children entering and leaving out-of-home care.
- CBC Scorecard
The CBC Scorecard was developed in conjunction with the 18 community-based care lead agencies across the state. These nonprofit organizations contract with the state to handle all prevention, foster care, adoption and Independent Living services to children and families in the child welfare system. The scorecard evaluates the lead agencies on 12 key measures to determine how well they are meeting the most critical needs of these at-risk children and families.
- Federal Child Welfare Indicators
The United States Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families' Children's Bureau developed a series of seven (7) statewide data indicators for the Safety and Permanency of children involved with state child welfare agencies. While the actual performance on these measures are calculated by the Children's Bureau using Florida's semi-annual data submissions (AFCARS), the Department of Children and Families' Office of Child Welfare has provided this report for child welfare practitioners and others to see how the Department is performing on more than the statewide annual basis provided by the Children's Bureau. Note that this data uses a more robust and recent set of data than Florida’s AFCARS submission, as such the information will not exactly match the information reported by the Children’s Bureau.
- CPI Scorecard
The CPI scorecard is used to measure the standards of our child protective investigations across our regions. Child protective investigators investigate allegations of abuse, neglect and abandonment of children across the state. This scorecard looks at nine important measures to ensure a quick response time, appropriate case reviews and successful outcomes for children and families.
- Child Care Scorecard
The Child Care Scorecard was developed to indicate the performance of the Child Care Regulatory staff. The Scorecard is a cumulative year-to-date picture of the present fiscal year. The Scorecard will be updated monthly with the most current data available for each measure.
- Adult Protective Services Scorecard
The Adult Protective Services Scorecard was developed to indicate the performance of the APS Program. The Scorecard will be updated monthly with the most current data available for each measure.
- Regional Managing Directors Scorecard
The Region Balanced Scorecard was developed to assess and improve the functioning of the department's six regions. The scorecard is built around four domains commonly used to assess organizations:
- Customer Focus
- Operational Effectiveness
- Learning / Growth
- Financial Efficiency
- Mental Health Treatment Facilities Scorecard
The Mental Health Treatment Facilities Scorecard was developed in conjunction with the seven facilities throughout the State that serve adults with mental illnesses who have been admitted for intensive inpatient treatment. Measures were selected that promote competency restoration, personal recovery and the safety of the individuals served in civil and forensic settings.
- Program Performance
The Performance Dashboard shows data on state and federal measures for all of the department's program areas.
