Judicial Branch Budget Update: The Judicial Council will receive a report on the current California fiscal environment and the status of the fiscal year 2012–2013 judicial branch budget and upcoming legislative budget hearings. (No action required.)
CCMS Deployment Cost Analysis: Grant Thornton LLP, a national auditing and consulting firm, will present its report on the CCMS deployment plan and approach. The presentation will include a cost analysis of the early adopter deployment to the Superior Court of San Luis Obispo County, as well as an approach and cost benefit for deployment of CCMS to ten additional courts. (No action required.)
CCMS Deployment Options: The council will review and consider three options for CCMS for fiscal year 2012–2013:
Option 1: Deploy CCMS to the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo. This option deploys CCMS to one early adopter court, the Superior Court of San Luis Obispo County, followed by the Grant Thornton recommended 10 court, Phase 2 strategy that balances economic return, diversity and needs of courts.
Option 2: Pause CCMS Activities for 12 months, then continue deployment to the Superior Court of San Luis Obispo. This option involves pausing CCMS activities for 12 months and then deploying CCMS to one early adopter court, the Superior Court of San Luis Obispo County, followed by the Grant Thornton recommended 10 court, Phase 2 strategy that balances economic return, diversity, and needs of courts.
Option 3: Terminate V4 and Leverage CCMS Technology. This option would end V4 as a statewide program for the California trial courts. This option recognizes the current fiscal environment and proposes to analyze and potentially leverage the technical infrastructure, application functionality, processes and artifacts, ensuring the assets owned by the judicial branch will be used to meet ongoing technology solutions for the California trial courts.
