Timeline FAQ's



  • When is the official start date for the program?

    Social Solutions began working with the Pilot Sites April 18, 2011. Implementation of the pilot sites is estimated to be October 14, 2011. A structured roll-out of ETO with the rest of the victim service programs will occur afterwards. How the structured roll-out will occur has yet to be determined, but will be developed in the near future. The structured roll-out will include the implementation of ETO at all victim service programs whether you are utilizing the client data management and aggregate portions of ETO, or if you are only choosing to utilize the required aggregate portion of ETO.

    A more specific timeline of activities and project milestones can be found at PCCD’s website www.pccd.state.pa.us by clicking on "Are you a victim service provider" and then the "Data Collection, Reporting and Outcomes Project."

  • What are the dates for the required reporting?

    The timeline is still a work in progress. We anticipate that all agencies will have the ETO software by January 2012. The first reports due to funders (PCCD, PCAR, and /or PCADV) through ETO will occur as implementation of ETO occurs with your agency. You will be provided with additional guidance and training prior to submitting your first report.

  • Are you looking to have all centers using in the middle of fiscal year 2011-2012 or start at new fiscal year 2012-2013?

    We will begin using the new system as soon as possible. It is anticipated that all agencies will be operating by January 2012.
