The National Core Indicators (NCI) Survey is used by the
California Department of Developmental Disabilities to assess
performance in services and supports provided to people with
intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD). The NCI survey
has been used in California since 2010 as a requirement by the
Welfare and Institutions Code, Section 4571 to implement a
nation-wide quality assessment survey.
The purpose of this statement is to assist the regional center
and the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) to identify
any relationships, positions or circumstances which may create a
conflict of interest between employees’ regional center
duties and obligations, and any other financial interests and/or
relationships that they may have.
