CCCWA Updating Online Database
I wanted to share with you all that CCCWA is planning to update their online database system. This database houses the “shared list”, along with information about matched families’ cases.
At the Joint Council conference Wednesday, I had a chance to get a sneak peek at the new system (shown in photo above). The upgraded database looks similar to the former system, but it appears more organized and seems to have more features which should prove useful. I think this will be a good improvement for the China program and hopefully the upgraded system will provide more technical stability during the monthly updates when a lot of matching happens!
In order to facilitate this process, CCCWA is shutting down the old database on Friday, May 24th and the new system should be up and running as of June 1st. They have also informed us that they will not be accepting or processing dossiers during this time. As far as I am aware, that is the only service that will be impacted during this transition.
It is my hope that taking a full week to close the old system and bring up the new database will facilitate a smooth transition. We look forward to using the new and improved system!
