For Receiving Facilities

Electronic Submission

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) launched the Baker Act Data Collection System (BADCS) which changes the way designated receiving facilities submit required Baker Act data and forms.

Effective July 1, 2023, designated receiving facilities are required to use the new system to complete an electronic version of the coversheet and upload the initiation form, and the transportation form.

More information about this system can be found on DCF's website here
