SUBJECT: Index of Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) Action Transmittals (ATs), Information Memoranda (IMs), Policy Interpretation Questions (PIQs), and Dear Colleague Letters (DCLs)

CONTEXT: This index includes all active ATs, IMs, PIQs, and DCLs issued from January 2005 to December 2007

An Action Transmittal (AT) has its basis in Federal law and regulation and, as the name implies, instructs State Child Support Enforcement (CSE) programs on the actions they must take to comply with new and amended Federal law.

An Information Memorandum (IM) provides state CSE agencies with information on program practices that can be useful to program improvement.

A Policy Interpretation Question (PIQ) is an official OCSE reply to an inquiry concerning application of policy submitted to a Regional Office by a State CSE program. Although these questions often arise from a specific practice or situation, the responses are official statements of OCSE policy on the issue.

A Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) is a letter to State IV-D Directors providing information about practices, changes in procedures or other CSE topics.
