OMB No.: 0970–0181. Description: State and Tribal agencies administering the Child Support Enforcement Program under Title IV–D of the Social Security Act are required to provide information each fiscal quarter to the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) concerning administrative expenditures and the receipt and disposition of child support payments from non-custodial parents. State title IV–D agencies report quarterly expenditures and collections using Forms OCSE–396A and OCSE–34A, respectively. Tribal title IV–D agencies report quarterly expenditures using Form SF–269, as prescribed in program regulations, and formerly reported quarterly collections using only a modified version of Form OCSE–34A. The information collected on these reporting forms is used to compute quarterly grant awards to States and Tribes, the annual incentive payments to States and provides valuable information on program finances. This information is also included in a published annual statistical and financial report, available to the general public. In response to an earlier Federal Register Notice (75 FR 10805, March 9, 2010), this agency received insufficient comments to support any substantial changes to these forms at this time. However, we continue to discuss improvements to these reporting forms with State and Tribal grantees and anticipate some minor revisions will be proposed in the near future. These revisions will be limited to any changes that may be necessitated by the expiration of program requirements under the ‘‘American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009’’ (ARRA) and changes to reporting instructions that will allow Tribal grantees to, at least, use the same quarterly collection report submitted by State grantees.
