Background—Child Support Performance
Incentive Act (CSPIA)
– Established under regulatory authority to reward States
for performance (CSPIA, 1998)
– Incentive payments are linked to performance in five
areas:
•
•
•
•
•
Establishment of Paternities
Establishment of Support Orders
Collection of Current Support
Collection of Arrears (weighted at 75%)
Cost Effectiveness (weighted at 75%)
COLLECTION BASE FORMULA
2 times (Current Assistance + Former Assistance + Medicaid
Assistance) + Never Assistance Collections + Fees Retained by Other
States
Background—Child Support Performance
Incentive Act (CSPIA)
– States are paid from a capped incentive
pool. The pool has increased from $422
million in FY 2000 to $504 in FY 2010
– Penalties are associated with failure to
meet or improve three of the measures:
• PEP
• Establishment of Support Orders
• Collection of Current Support
CSPIA Accomplishments

After the end of each fiscal year and completion of all data audits:
OCSE calculates each State's annual incentive payment, using the actual collection and expenditure data and
the performance data submitted by all States by October 30th (or revised by December 31st)
A positive or negative grant will then be awarded to the State to reconcile an actual annual incentive payment
that has been calculated to be greater or lesser, respectively.

1st Stop - PATERNITY
What can you do that will help ensure you make that 1st Stop?
Paternity Establishment
The percentage/ratio of children BOW with paternity established for
the current year compared to children BOW for the previous year
REPORTS: THE KEY TO SUCCESS
* BOW Indicator Report
* CHILDREN In Case Load Report
TRACK YOUR RESULTS MONTHLY!
Your paper file should include documentation as to how paternity
was established: divorce orders, Affidavits of Parentage, court
orders, etc.
Every file should have the child/ren Birth Certificate!
2ND STOP– HOPE IT HOLDS UP
FOR
ESTABLISHMENT
MOVING THOSE CASES ALONG THE LINE.
The percentage of open cases with support orders
established
HOW IS YOUR OFFICE SET UP FOR
ESTABLISHMENT?
•
WORK HIGH PRIORITY WORKLIST ITEMS TO
INCREASE THE % OF CASES UNDER ORDER
(CACM, CAPD, CASS, CHEM, CRAF, CTRN, ECS1,
ECS2, ECS3, EEMP, EFTP, EIST, ELAP, EMPL, FLOW,
FWDP, LEMP, LNHE, LPVR, MAIL, PANT, PLOD,
RWR)
REPORTS: THE KEY TO SUCCESS
⊡ CASE LOAD LISTING REPORT
⊡ No Support Order Report
UNION COUNTY REVIEWS ALL CASES WITHOUT AN
ORDER MONTHLY!
Don’t
get
stuck
on the
line…
you
need to
keep
moving
so you
can get
to the
end!
Don’t Zip past your other stops– WE NEED TO
“COLLECTION” OUR THOUGHTS ON CURRENT support AND
SEE WHAT PEOPLE DID IN THE PAST – “ARREARS”
Are you tired of all these stops? Are you ready to get some money?
How is your office structured for Enforcement/Intergovernmental?
Increasing Current Support, Arrears = Increasing total Collections!
Current Support Collections
The percentage of cases paying the full current support amount each month
Cases Paying on Arrears
The percentage of cases with a payment made on arrears
REPORTS: THE KEY TO SUCCESS
* Case load listing report
* Cases Not Paying Full Support
* Cases w/ No Payment on Arrears
Know how to harness yourself on that Zip-line – Be secure in knowing you will
make it to the end of that line.
Don’t get stuck!
FOCUS ON HOW YOUR OFFICE OPERATES AND HOW YOU THINK!
EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAM
•IDENTIFY BARRIERS
•DETERMINE WHAT WE CAN DO TO HELP
•DIRECT PARENTS TO AVAILABLE RESOURCES
JOB LINK CONNECTION
COMMUNITY COLLEGE CONNECTION
SMART START
UTILIZE YOUR COUNTY’S RESOURCES
It takes everyone working together
to get you to the end of that
Zip-line!
. . . because you can’t get to where you’re going
without knowing where you are!
