Tribal Systems

Tribal child support programs that want to operate an automated data processing system to maintain secure, confidential records and automate case processing activities have several options available:

  1. Use office automation
  2. Implement an Intergovernmental Agreement to access a state or another tribe’s system
  3. Install the Model Tribal System
  4. Join a consortium of tribes to acquire data processing system support and services
  5. Build a data processing system with tribal funds

Tribes that choose to implement an Intergovernmental Agreement, use the Model Tribal System, or join a consortium must submit an Advance Planning Document (APD) to obtain federal funding for installation-related costs.  We offer technical assistance in preparing your APD, and templates and tools as well as advice to help you succeed in automating your program.
