OCFS Releases Findings in ACS Investigation

OCFS today released the following statement:

"Following the tragic death of a New York City child in September, Governor Cuomo directed OCFS to investigate ACS' compliance with regulations and policies in the case. On December 1, those findings were presented to ACS and mandated that ACS appoint an independent monitor approved by OCFS.  Today, the Mayor accepted that condition in responding to our findings.”
