(b) Articulate ways in which the program is an effective component of agency and state priorities, goals and strategies, such as those developed by the Oregon Progress Board, or to relevant research and professional standards;

(c) Establish plans, interagency partnerships, implementation practices and interactions with local coordinated comprehensive plans;

(d) Utilize the information generated by applicable state advisory groups and by the local planning process administered by the State Commission on Children and Families in the program assessment of needs and decisions as to service delivery in a given community; and

(e) Identify barriers to improving program capability to serve the needs of young children and related recommendations, if any.

(2) The processes listed in subsection (1) of this section are for the purpose of generating interagency coordination so as to serve to the greatest extent possible young children and their families in a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate fashion. The information generated by these processes shall be considered as a contribution to subsequent budget decisions by state and local agencies, the Oregon Department of Administrative Services and Legislative Assembly, and as a contribution to the planning and coordination tasks of the State Commission on Children and Families.
