established in the rules at 45 CFR part 95, subpart F, is the procedure 
by which states request and obtain approval for Federal Financial 
Participation (FFP) in their cost of acquiring Automated Data

    State child support agencies are required to establish and operate 
a federally approved statewide ADP and information retrieval system to 
assist in child support enforcement. States are required to submit an 
initial APD, containing information to assist the Secretary of the 
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in determining if the 
state computerized support enforcement project planning and 
implementation meets federal certification requirements needed for the 
approval of FFP. States are then required to submit annual APD updates 
to provide project status updates to HHS, as well as, to request
