OCYF Bulletin GPS Referrals

The purpose of this bulletin is to transmit to public children and youth agencies (herein referred to as county agencies) requirements related to a statewide policy establishing when a referral can be designated as a General Protective Services (GPS) report, screen-out protocols, and response times for GPS report assessments. This bulletin rescinds and replaces the Office of Children, Youth and Families (OCYF) Bulletin #3490-19-02, entitled Statewide General Protective Services (GPS) Referrals, which was issued on December 20, 2019 and effective on August 1, 2020. County agencies that already have policies related to screening out GPS reports and response times which provide for more immediate responses than the policy contained in this bulletin are permitted to continue with their individual agency’s policy.
