Title: Computerized Support Enforcement Systems.

OMB No.: 0980-0271.

The information being collected is mandated by Section 454(16) which provides for the establishment and operation by the State agency, in accordance with an initial and annually updated advance planning document approved under section 452(d) of this state, of a statewide system meeting the requirements of section 454A. In addition, 454A(e)(1) requires that States create a State Case Registry (SCR) within their statewide automated child support systems, to include information on IV-D cases and non-IV-D orders established or modified in the State on or after October 1, 1998. Section 454A(e)(5) requires States to regularly update their cases in the SCR.

The data being collected for the Advance Planning Document is a combination of narrative, budget and schedules which are used to provide funding approvals on an annual basis and to monitor and oversee system development.

The data being collected for the State Case Registry is used to transmit mandatory data elements to the Federal Case Registry where it is used for matching against other data bases for the purposes of location of individuals, assets, employment and other child support related activities.
