CSA Random Moment Sampling WisLine

Recording of WisLine

Date:  Thursday, January 7, 2010, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

This WisLine introduces child support agencies (CSAs) and county finance department staff to new Random Moment Sampling (RMS) procedures that will capture and quantify IV-D, Qualifying Non-IVD, and Non-qualifying Non-IVD expenditures incurred by county child support agencies.

The RMS results will determine the ratios DCF will use to allocate the CSA’s Direct and Indirect costs, which will be reported to the federal government for child support reimbursement.

We will review which child support expenditures are eligible and not eligible for federal financial participation (FFP) reimbursement, and discuss new CORe reporting that will be used to capture and allocate CSA costs.

Effective February 1, 2010, BCS will implement the Random Moment Sampling (RMS) methodology. CSA workers who routinely perform Non-IVD work will be sampled. The results from February and March will be considered trial months, with full RMS federal reporting to begin April 1, 2010.

During January, additional child support bulletins and child support letters will be issued to clarify the CORE reporting policy and procedures for RMS.
