ACTION TRANSMITTAL

AT-08-03

DATE: March 7, 2008

TO: STATE AND TRIBAL AGENCIES ADMINISTERING CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT PLANS APPROVED UNDER TITLE IV D OF THE SOCIAL SECURITY ACT AND OTHER INTERESTED INDIVIDUALS

SUBJECT: : Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for State Systems Advance Planning Document (APD) Process

ATTACHMENT: Attached is a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, published in the Federal Register on March 7, 2008 (73 FR 12341 ), which revises the Advance Planning Document process for States and Territories. These proposed regulations do not apply to Tribal IV-D programs. 

SUMMARY: The Advance Planning Document (APD) process governs the procedure by which States obtain approval for Federal financial participation in the cost of acquiring automated data processing equipment and services. This NPRM reduces the submission requirements for lower-risk information technology (IT) projects and procurements and increases oversight over higher-risk IT projects and procurements by making technical changes, conforming changes and substantive revisions in the documentation required to be submitted by States, counties, and territories for approval of their Information Technology plans and acquisition documents.

Comments will be available for public inspection Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the 4th floor of the Department’s offices at the above address.

In addition, a copy of this regulation may be downloaded from http://www.regulations.gov. You may transmit written comments electronically via the Internet.
