Paltech Awarded Multi-Year Contract with the Children’s Bureau and its Office on Child Abuse and Neglect (CB/OCAN)

10/01/10

The Children’s Bureau and its Office on Child Abuse and Neglect, ACYF/ACF/HHS has awarded Paltech the National Child Abuse and Neglect Training and Publications (NCANTP) Project for a period of one year, with the option to renew for three additional 12-month periods. The principal objective of the NCANTP Project is to provide a broad range of supportive services that include research, analyses, and syntheses designed to frame discussions on critical issues; content expertise on topics key to the mission of the CB/OCAN; design, planning, and implementation of the 18th and 19th National Conferences on Child Abuse and Neglect; quality publications and resource materials; continuous learning activities; expanding partnerships at the national, state, and local levels; and other efforts to develop, promote, enhance, and extend quality services to protect our nation’s most vulnerable children and families.

Unique to this project is the overlap of the 18th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect and the CB’s 100th Anniversary in 2012. This anniversary presents a significant opportunity to reflect on the CB’s contributions in leading the nation’s response to issues of child safety, protection, and well-being, and to set priorities for the future. The 18th National Conference will serve as a centennial signature event of the CB’s 100th Anniversary celebration. The NCANTP project contract will continue through the completion of the 19th National Conference on Child Abuse and Neglect in 2014.

For nearly 15 years, Paltech has been privileged to support Federal agencies who serve the nation’s most vulnerable children and families. Drawing on in-house expertise and extensive contacts in the field, we have assisted the Children’s Bureau’s Office on Child Abuse and Neglect (CB/OCAN) for 10 years in the design, development, management, and execution of the nation’s only Federally sponsored conference on child abuse and neglect, and we have supported training and technical assistance (T/TA) on cutting-edge child protection issues.
