The next generation of child support
Foundation for Accenture Child Support Enforcement Solutions (FACSES)
Child support agencies help children get the financial support they need by locating absent parents, establishing paternity, obtaining child support orders and enforcing support payments. Without assistance from state agencies, many single-parent homes would not receive the child support payments required for basic necessities.
Even as funding and access to skilled caseworkers decrease, agencies face rising caseloads and increasing complexity. Given those challenges, agencies need modern, proven technology systems. They need systems that minimize administrative burden, increase productivity, improve program effectiveness and accelerate delivery of benefits, while still maintaining compliance requirements.
Many legacy child support systems are falling short in meeting those requirements. Aging technologies, siloed functions, high levels of manual intervention and lack of visibility into performance are all undermining the efficiency and effectiveness of child support enforcement programs.
For many child support agencies, technology transformation is now essential. But implementing new systems, or updating existing ones, can be a challenge. FACSES has been proving its value in the country’s largest child support system since 2007.
FACSES is a repository of proven, configurable and certified application components that speed implementation and lower implementation risk.
Accenture Public Service Platform (APSP) helps agencies manage citizen services in an integrated way—reducing costs while improving delivery.
A proven, industry-leading solution, FACSES brings innovative approaches to automating business processes and advanced technologies.
“Accenture brings a tremendous amount of knowledge to the table. They really do understand what this [Child Support] program is about, how it is about the federal complexities of the program, the interstate nature of the program, but they also bring that engagement, that...that sense of how important the mission of child support is to families, as well as the creativity to see what’s possible in the future and what we can be doing to do a better job serving the families of our country.”
