Introduction
Child Support Enforcement System Replacement (CSESR)

Background …
• CSES maintains more than 59,000 active cases with over $132.1 Million
distributed annually in child support payments.
• CSED provides assistance to over 100,000 NM and Navajo Nation children
based on FY13 numbers.
• States are Federally mandated to “have an automated system to operate it’s
child support program efficiently, effectively, and economically.” OCSE
supports states to improve their systems so that:
• Caseworkers have more time to focus on complex cases
• States can adhere to mandated timeframes to achieve successful outcomes
• Case data is more reliable, secure, and readily available
• Data exchange and information sharing is more comprehensive and useful
• Reporting can be predictive, analytic and versatile
• Customer service is improved and available at multiple points of contact

Business Problem …
Legacy CSES
• 20-year old mainframe technology
• Real-time client benefit information not available to staff and clients
• Currently has minimal flexibility for changing business needs to support collections and
support for NM children
Solution must meet State and Federal requirements
• National Human Services Interoperability Architecture (NHSIA) standards
• OCSE, IRS and Disaster Recovery requirements
• Flexibility to comply with changing regulations
CSED mainframe hosting, maintenance, operations & storage costs
continue to increase
