ContactPoint's Children Missing Education (CME) report function is working properly and is available to all local authorities in England.

On 2 November 2009, the Department raised an issue with the supplier of the ContactPoint system, following the identification by a local authority that it could no longer access the CME report function. This issue was raised using the standard problem resolution process and the functionality was restored on 18 December 2009.
