While there is no federal mandate for Title III-B LSPs to report more than the units of service (in which one unit of service equals one hour), and the number of individual clients served (known as the unduplicated count), the Department has the responsibility to ensure that the limited Title III-B resources are being effectively targeted to those in greatest need as prescribed by the Older Americans Act (OAA).

The Uniform Reporting System (URS) was designed to help assess whether limited Title IIIB legal services are being effectively targeted. The URS is intended to show the types of people legal providers are serving in order to give a clearer picture of target groups that might need more attention; types of legal problems being addressed for older Californians; and types/levels of services being provided.

The URS has proved to be an uncomplicated system for collecting meaningful, statewide information that is used to help build support for, and understanding of the importance of, legal services to older Californians.
