The state Department of Children and Families still doesn't have a good way to track how its child welfare contractors are performing, a decade after the program was privatized.

Officials and outside child welfare advocates say the state is doing better, but DCF doesn't have a standardized system for evaluating its 20 contractors. That makes it impossible to prove that the 40,000 children in the foster care system are being helped.

New DCF Secretary David Wilkins says he plans to introduce a new
monitoring system next year.
