Title: Electronic Document Exchange (formerly titled, “Child Support Document Exchange System”).

OMB No.: 0970-0435.

Description: The federal Office of Child Support Enforcement's (OCSE) Federal Parent Locator Service offers the Electronic Document Exchange (EDE), formerly titled “Child Support Document Exchange System” (CSDES), application within the OCSE Child Support Portal. The EDE provides a centralized, secure system for authorized users in state child support agencies to electronically exchange child support and spousal support case information with other state child support agencies. Using the EDE benefits state child support agencies by reducing delays, costs, and barriers associated with interstate case processing; increasing state collections; improving document security; standardizing data sharing; increasing state participation; and improving case processing and overall child and spousal support outcomes.

The activities associated with the EDE are authorized by (1) 42 U.S.C. 652(a)(7), which requires OCSE to provide technical assistance to the states to help them establish effective systems for collecting child support and spousal support; (2) 42 U.S.C. 666(c)(1), which requires state child support agencies to have expedited procedures to obtain and promptly share information with other state child support agencies; and (3) 45 CFR 303.7(a)(5), provides the mechanism for state child support agencies to fulfill the federal requirement to transmit requests for child support case information and provide requested information electronically to the greatest extent possible as required by the regulation.

Respondents: State Child Support Agencies.
