We would like your input into ways to deal with the county budget shortfall. While Child Support will likely not have to layoff staff next year; we have decreased our workforce by 40 employees over the past 5 years. Your help in identifying ways to serve you more efficiently is appreciated. Please answer any questions you can.

* 1. What are the most important things we do?

* 2. Do you see ways we can do these important things differently in the current fiscal climate?

* 3. Are there things we should or could stop doing? Please describe.

* 4. How will you, our customers be affected if we stop?

* 5. If you are an outside agency, are there things we do well that we could do for other departments or outside agencies which would increase revenue and strengthen our department?

* 6. If you are an outside agency, are there others (e.g. another department, another county, community organization) who could do some of the things we do instead of us?

* 7. If you are an outside agency, do you see other partnership opportunities that we should consider?

* 8. What do we need to implement the above ideas?

* 9. Please describe any other ideas you have to streamline our services.
