Accurate program and service records are an important part of maintaining funding eligibility as a provider and for the families receiving services. OECE funded providers are required to use several data systems to report about the programs services, enrollment and attendance, professional development, and vacancies.
For more details about data reporting requirements, review the ELS-PFA Operating Guidelines.
Starting in July 2021, Mocha will be the attendance tracking, payment generating, and enrollment data system of record for OECE. Mocha will be available for use by all providers and programs funded by OECE, although as of now only formerly Cocoa-using programs are required to use it.
