    Description: State child support agencies are required to establish 
and operate a federally approved statewide automated data processing 
and information retrieval system to assist in child support 
enforcement. States are required to submit an initial advance automated 
data processing planning document (APD) containing information to 
assist the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services in 
determining if the state computerized support enforcement system meets 
federal requirements and providing federal approval. States are also 
required to submit annually an updated APD for oversight purposes. 
Based on assessment of the information provided in the initial or 
updated APDs, states that do not meet federal requirement approval will 
need to complete an independent verification and validation.

at 45 CFR Part 95, Subpart F, is the procedure by which States request

654A, which provides a state agency to have a single statewide 
automated data processing and information retrieval system and sets 
forth the requirements of that system; (2) 42 U.S.C. 654(16), which 
provides the state must submit an initial, and annually updated, 
advance automated data processing planning document for project 
approval; (3) 45 CFR 307.15, which provides the requirements for 
approval of advance planning documents; (4) 42 U.S.C 652(d), which
