Customer Service Spotlight
Account Name = support
Password = support

Put the spotlight on someone in your office!  Got a great customer service story?  Finally got an NCP to pay after 50 years of non payment?  Share your story with your fellow child support professionals around the state.  This is one way to show our employees that they are a valuable resource and that we are proud of the work that they do.  Also, to show other offices within the state what goals have been accomplished towards our mission of "putting children first".  We have the finest child support workers in the United States, let's brag on them!! 

Rapid Process Improvement

DCSS is implementing Lean Management methodology known as Rapid Process Improvement.  Rapid Process Improvement will identify, reduce and or eliminate waste in our current processes.
Our goal is to utilize experts (you) to make Child Support services Faster, Friendlier and Easier.  This concept drives and supports our commitment to standardization, uniformity and developing a culture of continuous improvement.
