Vendor Offset

Is it possible to receive any vendor information about a party obligated to pay support, such as whether he/she employed with the state?
Vendor Offset is an automated process; it’s an exchange of name, social security number and data information between Child Support Services (CSS) and the State Controller’s Office. Vendor Offset is not a locate tool, the data provides no locate information.

I will be receiving vendor payments for daycare services I provide. I owe past residential fees. Can I set up $100.00 payments from vendor payments to pay residential fees?
No. Vendor Offset works just like a lien, we cannot control the payment process amounts through a payment plan.
