Thank you for your initial Intervention Profile Submissions to Ecco. Please remember the following important points as we begin this new journey:
- Programs will create their Intervention Profiles (IP) as in the past and submit the new IP to the ECCO System. We require all IPs to be submitted as new IPs this year. There will be no Copying of IPs from the past FY Year. Make sure that your Intervention Profiles are submitted; a common occurrence is to save the new profile, yet fail to click on the Submit button below the Save button on the left-hand side of the Profile Creation Screen (this is where Part A, B, C & D is located). Make sure to complete all of Part A in its entirety. This includes funding source (SAPBG) and entering the State Level Manager Information: Jessica Dicken, Jessica.firstname.lastname@example.org, 984.236.5090. Submissions that include an incomplete Part A will be returned for revision.
- As of October 5, 2020, ECCO Intervention Profiles may be created and Data Entry allowed (after ecco system approval) for Administrative, Community Based Process, Problem ID and Referral, Information Dissemination, and Alternative Activities.
- Please note there are now five Administrative Intervention Profiles within Ecco using the following naming convention. This is a fundamental change to take note of.
ECCO Reporter (Administrative)
Staff Training (Administrative)
Community Team Building (Administrative)
Agency Work (Administrative)
Block Grant Supervision (Administrative)
- On October 12, 2020 ECCO Intervention Profiles may be created and the administrative approval process launching for: Youth Prevention Education and Environmental Strategies. Prior to October 12, do not submit Intervention Profile Request for Environmental or Youth Prevention Education.
- Approving Youth Prevention Education and Environmental Strategy Intervention Profiles is a multi-level process tied to your recently completed Needs Assessment (programs will receive additional information very soon).
- Initial approvals for Administrative, Community Based Process, Problem ID and Referral, Information Dissemination, and Alternative Activities within Ecco are currently occurring while every effort is to review submissions within 48 business hours. We ask for your understanding with the following points:
IP submissions will be reviewed and either approved or the program will be provided an email asking for additional information or minor changes to the profile.
Email requests to providers intend to ensure that we have a strong foundation out of the gate.
Our goal is that providers are successful in their data reporting requirements with the highest level of accuracy within the Ecco System.
IP creation is essential to the overall Ecco System.
- There are a collection of Community Based Process and Information Dissemination Strategies that may appear or be connected to a respective Environmental Intervention. In cases such as these, the interventions in question may not be approved until a review of the corresponding Environmental Strategy after October 12.
