ATTACHMENT: Compendium of Promising Practices/Good Ideas in Child Support Enforcement - 2008

DATE: May 1, 2009

TO: ALL AGENCIES ADMINISTERING CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT PLANS APPROVED UNDER TITLE IV-D OF THE SOCIAL SECURITY ACT AND OTHER INTERESTED PARTIES

SUBJECT: Compendium of Promising Practices/Good Ideas in Child Support Enforcement – 2008

BACKGROUND: This is the last edition of the Compendium of Promising Practices that will be transmitted approximately yearly. Additionally, this is the last edition with a set deadline for submission of practices. Practice papers from this time forward will be accepted on an ongoing basis. We are changing the dissemination method in an effort to get practices to you in a timely manner. We are launching a pilot which will disseminate practices as they become available through the Child Support Report.

OCSE will continue to use the format used in this issue. In the future, include information which describes “Cost/Benefit” of the practice, if applicable. We believe in these difficult financial times, that programs are interested in practices that are cost effective. Additionally, OCSE will alert you to subject areas of particular interest through a notice in the Child Support Report.

We expect this new system to expedite the delivery of Promising Practices to our IV-D programs and lead to faster implementation of these good ideas across the country.

INQUIRIES: Sue Sosler, OCSE, Division of State, Tribal and Local Assistance, (202) 401-5561. Submit practices to sue.sosler@acf.hhs.gov. You may also contact the CSE program specialist in your Regional Office.
