This all sounds great! When will the new system launch?
We are glad you share our excitement! We will be sharing more details about our system transition over the next few months, leading up to our system launch in March 2018.
Are you changing the CCAT tool?
No – while we are upgrading the CCAT platform, the CCAT assessment tool itself will stay the same. Our core capacity assessment model and lifecycle placement framework was developed over decades of research and evaluation of capacity building initiatives in the non-profit sector. We hope that the planned changes to the CCAT platform will make this model more accessible to the hundreds of nonprofits that participate in the assessment each year, and help them to use their assessment data for sustainable capacity building in their organizations.
I have active CCAT groups open currently in the system. Will they be affected?
No current groups in the system will be affected by the system transition. We will be working to gradually transition new groups and cohorts into our new system over the next few months, starting in March, but any group that begins its assessment before April will be able to complete the assessment in the current system. Groups beginning their assessments in April will launch in the new platform.
How can I learn more? Can I get a preview of the system?
If you’re interested in learning more, send us an email, and we will reach out with additional updates and opportunities to preview and learn more about the new CCAT system.
