Start Preamble

Title: OCSE-369A: Financial Report; and OCSE-34A: Quarterly Report of Collections.

OMB No.: 0970-0181.

Description: Each State agency administering the Child Support Enforcement Program under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act is required to provide information to the Office of Child Support Enforcement concerning its administrative expenditures and its receipt and disposition of child support payments from non-custodial parents. These quarterly reporting forms enable each State to provide that information, which is used to compute both the quarterly grants awarded to each State and the annual incentive payments earned by each State. This information is also included in a published annual statistical and financial report, available to the general public.

Comments sent to the Office of Child Support Enforcement, both directly and in response to an earlier Federal Register Notice (67 FR 39727, et seq.), provided many useful recommendations to update and correct these financial reporting forms. However, several comments strongly indicated that State agencies would have inadequate time to incorporate these revisions in time to meet the reporting requirements for the fiscal year beginning October 1, 2002. In addition, legislation has been introduced in Congress that, if enacted, may require additional revisions to these forms.

For these reasons, we have decided to request that the expiration date of the existing forms be extended, without change, through September 30, 2004.
