RE: The National Child Support Enforcement Strategic Plan for FY 2000-2004

Dear Colleague:

Attached please find the National Child Support Enforcement Strategic Plan for FY 2000-2004. We are pleased to report that State, local, tribal, and Federal partners developed the plan over the last several months, and consensus with State partners was reached on the new plan on June 13, 2000.

As you know, the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement and its State partners originally developed a 1995-1999 strategic plan as part of a pilot project under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA). That plan served as the foundation for the performance-based incentive and penalty systems, revised data reporting, and led the direction of the Child Support Program.

Five years have passed since that first plan was developed and the Child Support Enforcement Program has continued to grow and change. This new plan with its revised mission, vision, goals, objectives, and indicators will provide a common path for the course of the program for the next five years.

We would like to thank each State, local, tribal, and Federal person involved in the development of the plan. We continue to appreciate all that you do on behalf of America's children.

Sincerely,

David Gray Ross
Commissioner
Office of Child Support Enforcement
