State Systems Planning & Design

State child support programs must follow specific policies and procedures to receive funding approval to plan, design, develop, implement, and operate automated child support systems. 

First, the state must prepare an Advance Planning Document to receive federal funding for system acquisition and operating costs.  The state must also conduct a thorough feasibility study that includes alternatives and cost benefit analyses. 

The acquisition of a state child support system takes thoughtful and deliberate planning.  OCSE offers guidance and technical assistance from the planning stage through system design, development and implementation.
