Using CCMS, cases may be electronically transferred from one CCR&R/Site to another if a client moves. Because CCMS electronically stores case documents, no paper file transfer is needed. Once BCCD approves the transferring of the case, the client's documents can be reviewed electronically by the new organization and child care can continue in a timely manner.

You can use this Job Aid to learn how to transfer a case and accept a case that has been transferred to your organization.

There are three organizations involved in a case transfer:

  • BCCD
  • CCR&R/Site who currently owns the case (Organization One)
  • CCR&R/Site who is receiving the case- the desired owner of the case (Organization Two)

In CCMS the following steps are completed to transfer a case:

  1. A case transfer need is identified.
  2. Organization One creates a Transfer Work Item and assigns to BCCD.
  3. BCCD approves the transfer, completes the Work Item Details page, and assigns the Transfer Work Item to Organization Two.
  4. Organization Two reviews the Work Item Details page, checks the sign-off box, and assigns the Transfer Work Item to Organization One.
  5. Organization One reviews the Work Item Details, checks the sign-off box, and assigns the Transfer Work Item to BCCD for final review.
  6. BCCD reviews the Work Item information, checks the sign-off box, and assigns the Transfer Work Item to Organization Two.
  7. Organization Two generates the new Approval Notice to the client/provider, and closes the Work Item.

Transfer Cases: Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Where can I view the current organization that owns a case?
    1. When you are in the context of a case, the caseload that owns the case displays in the Csld field in the purple header.  You can also find this information by performing a case search. The information displays in the Caseload column of the Search Results section of the page.
      • Additionally, on the Work Item Details page of the Transfer Work Item, the organization listed below the Work Item Status field is currently the one that owns the case.
      • Remember that if you decide the case should not be transferred, if your organization is no longer the one maintaining the case, the new organization will have to create a new Transfer Work Item to send the ownership of the case back to your organization.
