Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Title: Child Support Document Exchange System (CSDES). OMB No.: 0970–0435. Description: The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) offers the Child Support Document Exchange System (CSDES) application within the OCSE Child Support Portal. The CSDES provides state agencies with a centralized, secure system for authorized users in state child support agencies to electronically exchange child support and spousal support case information with other state child support agencies. Using the CSDES benefits state child support agencies by reducing delays, costs, and barriers associated with interstate case processing, increasing state collections, improving document security, standardizing data sharing, increasing state participation, and improving case processing and overall child and spousal support outcomes. The activities associated with the CSDES application are supported by (1) 42 U.S.C. 652(a)(7), which requires OCSE to provide technical assistance to the states to help them establish effective systems for collecting child and spousal support; (2) 42 U.S.C. 666(c)(1), which requires state child support agencies to have expedited procedures to obtain and promptly share information with other state child support agencies; and, (3) 45 CFR 303.7(a)(5), which requires states to transmit requests for child support case information and provide requested information electronically to the greatest extent possible. Respondents: State Child Support Agencies.
