Justification
Governor's Recommendations 2022-23

The Governor's Budget Recommendation for Fiscal Year 2022-23 includes a recurring reduction of $471,818 in General
Revenue in the Transfer General Revenue to Child Support Enforcement category in the Child Support Program (Program). The
Program receives a recurring General Revenue appropriation to pay for financial losses resulting from the processing of
child support collections. Effective October 1, 2016 the Department entered into a contract for State Disbursement Unit
Services. The new contract requires the vendor to pay for financial losses, unless specifically a result of a Department
error. In FY 2020-21 the Department reduced the appropriation for financial losses by $1,000,000. After additional
analysis, the Department determined that the appropriation can be reduced by an additional $471,818.


This issue was included in the Department's VIIIB-2 reduction exercise as well as the Department's Legislative Budget
Request and will have a minimal impact on the agency's operations.
