SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In FY 2014, OCSE competitively awarded a cooperative agreement to the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services to conduct a 5-year evaluation of OCSE’s national demonstration called Behavioral Interventions for Child Support Services (BICS). This supplement will allow the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services to develop additional dissemination tools such as reports and web-based trainings on the lessons learned and early findings from the evaluation of Behavioral Interventions for Child Support Services Demonstration. The cost of the BICS evaluation is higher than originally budgeted because the process mapping and project design phase has been significantly slower than anticipated for the grantees. This led to the need for increased technical assistance to the BICS grantees by the evaluation grantee. Additionally, as a result of the mapping and design phase, OCSE anticipates an increased number of interesting findings that will be of benefit to the greater child support field. The supplemental funds will allow Washington State Department of Social and Health Services to provide increased technical assistance to the BICS demonstration sites, and support the development of additional dissemination tools such as reports and web-based trainings on the lessons learned and early findings from the Evaluation of BICS. Specifically, the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services will explore the development of innovative, user-friendly tools such as podcasts and infographics that will provide research findings and learning to the child support community in a way that is easily accessible to interested program administrators and policy officials. These tools will also continue to build the evidence-base in what works in the delivery of child support services.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In FY 2014, OCSE competitively awarded a 
cooperative agreement to the Washington State Department of Social and 
Health Services to conduct a 5-year evaluation of OCSE's national 
demonstration called Behavioral Interventions for Child Support 
Services (BICS).
    This supplement will allow the Washington State Department of 
Social and Health Services to develop additional dissemination tools 
such as reports and web-based trainings on the lessons learned and 
early findings from the evaluation of Behavioral Interventions for 
Child Support Services Demonstration.
    The cost of the BICS evaluation is higher than originally budgeted 
because the process mapping and project design phase has been 
significantly slower than anticipated for the grantees. This led to the 
need for increased technical assistance to the BICS grantees by the 
evaluation grantee. Additionally, as a result of the mapping and design 
phase, OCSE anticipates an increased number of interesting findings 
that will be of benefit to the greater child support field.
    The supplemental funds will allow Washington State Department of 
Social and Health Services to provide increased technical assistance to 
the BICS demonstration sites, and support the development of additional 
dissemination tools such as reports and web-based trainings on the 
lessons learned and early findings from the Evaluation of BICS.
    Specifically, the Washington State Department of Social and Health 
Services will explore the development of innovative, user-friendly 
tools such as podcasts and infographics that will provide research 
findings and learning to the child support community in a way that is 
easily accessible to interested program administrators and policy 
officials. These tools will also continue to build the evidence-base in 
what works in the delivery of child support services.
