CTG's Vision for the Future
CTG recently prepared a self-evaluation report as part of the University at Albany's periodic review of research centers and institutes. The report, prepared by Center staff, covers the period from our founding in 1993 to the present. It includes an overview of the Center's history, where we stand today, and our vision for the future. Through this report we are sharing our vision and our progress with our University colleagues, the broader academic community, and our government and private sector partners and friends.

Mobile Technology in Child Protective Services
The promise of mobile technology to improve child protective services will require strategies that include significant attention to training and change management, and ongoing evaluation. CTG, in collaboration with the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS), recently completed a third assessment on the use of mobile technologies in child protective services (CPS) in New York State. This assessment covered over 450 laptops and tablets deployed to 23 Local Social Service Districts in NYS.
