been, both an obligee and obligor in those cases and the cases are, or have
been, assigned to the same Child Support Program (CSP) office.

interests of the state. There is no conflict of interest when the same CSP
office is assigned cases where the same person is, or has been, both an obligor

requestor and the other party(ies).
(6) If the CSP office manager denies the
request for transfer, the requestor may ask the CSP Director to review the
decision of the administrator and to facilitate a resolution.
