What is sustainability? Definition: The ability to support a system through adequate financial and human resources accounting for current maintenance and long-term enhancements. Producing an enduring, efficient, effective, and sustainable ECIDS—is not a start-and-finish endeavor; there will always be more work to do to ensure it remains current and relevant. Sustainability can take many forms—the most important of which may often be showing the value of the data in informing decisions.
Stakeholder Support: • How Broad and Deep is • the Stakeholder Support • for Your System?
Use: • How Widespread is • the Use of Your ECIDS?
Financial Support: • How Strong is • the Financial Support • for Your ECIDS?
Return on Investment: • Are You Defining, • Measuring, Recording, • and Demonstrating Success?
Why does sustainability matter for an ECIDS? Helping meet intended outcomes Without a sustained system the effectiveness will be limited and people will be hesitant to embrace the idea Dependency cannot be built without assurance of sustainability
State example: South Carolina Can you share a bit about your system? Please see the following slide

South Carolina How Widespread is the Use of Your ECIDS? Agency contracts for specific purposes – administrative data sets DSS contracts for ABC Quality (QRIS) Database, includes ERS data Jointly developed website displaying quality ratings Jointly developed web-based data cube – geo-mapping component • Purpose: Use data to impact policy decisions • Ex: Infant/toddler, health and safety grants • Ex: Training for family home providers Jointly developed ASQ software and website with USC

South Carolina Are You Defining, Measuring, Recording, and Demonstrating Success? Different definitions/multiple perspectives, examples • Customer happy, improving ability to serve a population • Other perspectives
What are a few indicators that an ECIDS can be sustained? Documentation of how much it will cost to support and maintain the integration of early childhood data into the ECIDS Potential funding sources beyond federal grants identified Documentation of training opportunities and other assurance that end users are properly prepared to use the ECIDS Development of a sustainability plan that encompasses the total cost of ownership for the ECIDS
