Enhance Program Outreach to Deliver a Clear and Accurate Image of Our Program to the Public


Improve Communication Within Program

Implement, improve and incorporate clear messaging of the child support program geared toward the public.

Business Problem/Opportunity: Implement Behavioral Economics (Business Led)

Current Status: Scheduled for early 2020. Check back later for progress. 

Business Outcomes: Behavioral Economics combines findings from the fields of sociology, psychology and economics to make small changes in the environment to make it easier for people to act and make decisions that support their goals. This initiative will stand up a structure within the California Child Support program that will make processes easier and improve program design and communication using Behavioral Economics principals and research.

Critical Success Factors: Revise FORM COVERSHEETS/SUMMONS & COMPLAINTS, Create new outreach materials (TV/radio stations) that focus on best practices in public outreach and plain language content at or below the 5th grade reading level, Instead of “hold” music when a call is placed on hold, have educational messages that discuss the various options child support services can offer.
