CWDA is requesting support for proposed trailer bill
language and funding to integrate the Online CalWORKs
Appraisal Tool (OCAT) as a service within the SAWS, which is the
system of record for CalWORKs in California, as part of the
2017-18 budget. Currently, OCAT is a standalone system that
requires county staff to do duplicate data entry, and the lack of
integration with SAWS impedes outcome tracking.
