Progress Report: Child Support Enforcement Demonstration Projects Continue to Show Mixed Results, Report No. 00-19, November 2000
Full report in PDF format

  • Florida’s two long-standing child support enforcement demonstration projects, located in Manatee and Miami-Dade counties, continue to show mixed performance results.  The Manatee County demonstration project has generally performed better than the Department of Revenue.  However, the performance of the Miami-Dade County demonstration project continues to be lower than that of the department.
  • As recommended by OPPAGA, the Department of Revenue has included performance targets for Manatee and Miami-Dade counties in their Fiscal Year 1999-2000 contracts. The department has requested both counties to submit explanations for performance targets not met in accordance with the contracts and has required both counties to submit corrective action plans.
  • The department and demonstration counties should view each other as cooperative partners and work together to improve both individual and statewide performance.
