TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Kansas officials are taking the first steps toward turning child support collections over to private contractors.
The Kansas Department for Children and Families has begun accepting proposals to privatize the system.
The department's child support services division collects more than $200 million each year from non-custodial parents.
The agency estimates that privatizing the system could increase collections by about $52 million over the first three years.
