Start Preamble

Title: Computerized Support Enforcement Systems.

OMB No.: 0980-0271.

Description: The information being collected is mandated by Section 454(16) of the Social Security Act which provides for the establishment and operation by the State agency, in accordance with an initial and annually updated advance automated data processing planning document (APD) approved under section 452(d) of the title, of a statewide automated data processing and information retrieval system. The system must meet the requirements of section 454A.

In addition, Section 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 APD are a combination of narrative, budgets and schedules which are used to provide funding approvals on an annual basis and to monitor and oversee system development. Child support has separated regulations under 45 CFR 307.15 related to submittal of APDs supplemental authority for enhanced funding system development and substantial penalties for non-compliance with the statutory deadline of October 1, 2000. The information collection requirements for the development and maintenance of child support enforcement automated systems are addressed in 45 CFR Part 95 and the information collection.
