Intergovernmental and Audit

INTERGOVERNMENTAL

Per eCFR Title 45 §303.7
75% Compliance level

Intergovernmental cases are reviewed for the appropriate child support services needed and, in addition, the case is reviewed separately for any intergovernmental time frames that applied during the audit period.

There are three actions that can help an office achieve the best results in the area of Intergovernmental Services.

  1. Check CSENet messages on a regular basis: Auditors review CSENet messages to determine if received messages require action and if so, are the appropriate actions taking place. Please see Child Support Quest on instruction for Checking CSENet messages.
  2. Pay attention to the time frames as set forth by the CFR: If actions or responses are needed are they taking place within the required time frames?
  3. Case log: Case log any actions taken on the case. Case log any contact made with the other state. Case log any responses needed or given.

 

Below are the actions and no actions used during the audit process.
