State Systems Review & Monitoring

State child support systems must be functionally comprehensive, operate statewide in all political jurisdictions, meet standards for effectiveness and efficiency, and represent the sole system solution supporting a state’s child support program.  From system planning through procurement, design, development, implementation, and operation phases, OCSE provides monitoring and oversight of the state’s system acquisition effort. 

Throughout the systems development life cycle, we offer hands-on technical assistance through desk audits and on-site reviews, and monitor new development projects through a standards-based process called Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V).  We also conduct certification reviews to verify that the state child support system complies with all federal requirements and performs as designed.
