IM-152 8/10/01 RELATIONSHIP CODE OF THE PROVIDER TO THE CHILD
|RELATIONSHIP CODE OF THE PROVIDER TO THE CHILD
|Federal reporting requirements instruct
states to capture child care providers' relationship to the child/ren in
care. The relationship field on the child's authorization screen,
FM3O, previously required a "y" or "n" entry. FAMIS blocked the entry
of this field in early 2000. Effective the afternoon of August 14,
2001, a relative code entry will be required.
Each time a child authorization is added, updated, or closed, an entry in the relationship field is required. This applies to new authorizations entered and any current child authorizations that are modified as of August 14, 2001.
The current provider registration documents, IM-91 and FA-350, have a section for the provider to complete indicating their relationship to the children in care. Use this information when coding the relationship indicator on the child authorization screen, FM3O.
The valid relationship codes for the provider to the child are:
