OCSE also operates competitive grant programs for child support in collaboration with several other components within the Administration for Children and Families. It also operates the Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS); certifies to the Secretary of the Treasury amounts of child support obligations that require collection in appropriate instances; transmits to the Secretary of State certifications of arrearages for passport denial; submits reports to Congress, as requested, on activities undertaken relative to the child support program; approves advanced data processing planning documents; and reviews, assesses and inspects planning, design and operation of state and tribal management information systems. FPLS also assists other federal, state and tribal agencies not involved in child support to fulfill their respective missions, save taxpayer dollars, and improve service to the public.
