Announcement of the Award of a Single-Source Expansion Supplement 
Grant to the Wisconsin Department for Children and Families in Madison, 
WI

AGENCY: Office of Child Support Enforcement, ACF, HHS

ACTION: Notice of the award of a single-source expansion supplement 
grant to the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families to support 
the evaluation of the Child Support Noncustodial Parent Employment 
Demonstration.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of 
Child Support Enforcement, Division of Program Innovation announces the 
award of a cooperative agreement in the amount of $700,000 to the 
Wisconsin Department for Children and Families in Madison, WI to 
support the evaluation of the Child Support Noncustodial Parent 
Employment Demonstration.
    In FY 2012, the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) 
competitively awarded a cooperative agreement to the Wisconsin 
Department of Children and Families to conduct a 5-year evaluation of 
OCSE's national demonstration called Child Support Noncustodial Parent 
Employment Demonstration (CSPED) under Funding Opportunity Announcement 
(FOA) number HHS-2012-ACF-OCSE-FD-0537. Under this FOA, a total of $4.5 
million of 1115 funds were made available to the Wisconsin Department 
of Children and Families to conduct this evaluation.
    The award of $700,000 the Wisconsin Department of Children and 
Families is required to cover the unanticipated costs of conducting the 
CSPED evaluation. The CSPED evaluation includes an impact evaluation 
using random assignment, an implementation study and a benefit-cost 
analysis. The evaluator is also providing evaluation-related technical 
assistance to the grantees implementing CSPED. A baseline and 12 month 
follow-up survey are being conducted. Administrative data from multiple 
sources are also being collected and evaluated. A grants management 
information system was developed for grantees to use to conduct random 
assignment, enroll individuals into the project, and document service 
delivery.

DATES: The period of support for this supplement is September 30, 2015 
through September 29, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Elaine Sorensen, Office of Child 
Support Enforcement, 330 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20201. Telephone: 
202-401-5099; Email: Elaine.sorensen@acf.hhs.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OCSE originally anticipated that there would 
be eight implementation sites in the CSPED demonstration and developed 
the Funding Opportunity Announcement for the evaluation of this 
demonstration accordingly. However, 8 grantees with 25 implementation 
sites were approved and awarded funding by OCSE to be part of CSPED 
under a separate funding announcement (HHS-2012-ACF-OCSE-FD-0297). This 
expansion of the number of implementation sites in CSPED has increased 
the costs of conducting the CSPED evaluation. Furthermore, random 
assignment was delayed in some sites and enrollment has been slower 
than expected in other sites. These delays have also increased the 
costs of the CSPED evaluation. Another

[[Page 81330]]

factor that has increased the costs of the evaluation is that OCSE is 
using the grants management information system developed for the 
grantees to monitor their enrollment and service delivery, which 
requires additional programming and customized reports. Finally, OCSE 
has asked for an internal memo describing preliminary impact findings 
which was not included in the FOA.
    As a consequences of these unanticipated costs, the $700,000 
supplemental grant will be used for the following activities: (1) 
Conduct the day-to-day operation of the evaluation, including all costs 
involved in ensuring continued compliance with human subject research 
requirements; (2) conduct research and analyze information from the 
multiple implementation sites; (3) conduct the baseline and follow-up 
surveys; (4) maintain and provide evaluation-related technical 
assistance to OCSE and the grantees for the grants management 
information system; and (5) complete an internal memo describing 
interim impact findings.

    Statutory Authority: Section 1115 of the Social Security Act 
authorizes funds for experimental, pilot, or demonstration projects 
that are likely to assist in promoting the objectives of Part D of 
Title IV.
