The Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia, Administrative Office through the Court Improvement Program Oversight Board, created a nationally recognized database to collect information on the timeliness of events within child abuse and neglect cases. Funding is provided by Court Improvement Program grant funds awarded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.

The report is organized by judge, but the data reflects the work of all professionals involved in child abuse and neglect proceedings. These professionals include child protective service workers, attorneys, guardians ad litem, child advocates, and others. Additionally, child abuse and neglect cases often involve children and families with unique circumstances that can complicate the process. Some circumstances are significant enough to merit or require a departure from the normal timeframes in a case. Knowing this, it is not the goal of the project to obtain 100% compliance to the various performance measures. The project's purpose is to provide each circuit court and the Supreme Court the data-tools to aid in identifying areas in need of improvement to expedite permanency for children.
