Background
Initially the Court Technology Task Force was created in 1994 as a transitional body, designed to bridge the analyses of the 2020 Commission regarding court technology and the formation of the Court Technology Standing Advisory Committee. In 1995, the Judicial Council adopted the task force’s recommendations and formed CTAC as a standing committee. CTAC’s Rule of Court was established in 1999.

Charge
Per Rule of Court 10.53, CTAC makes recommendations to the council for improving the administration of justice through the use of technology and for fostering cooperative endeavors to resolve common technological issues with other stakeholders in the justice system.
In addition to the duties outlined for all advisory committees, CTAC must also:

  1. Recommend standards to ensure compatibility in information and communication technologies in the judicial branch;
  2. Review and comment on requests for the funding of judicial branch technology projects to ensure compatibility with goals established by the council and standards promulgated by the committee;
  3. Review and recommend legislation, rules, or policies to balance the interests of privacy, access, and security in relation to court technology;
  4. Make proposals for technology education and training in the judicial branch;
  5. Assist courts in acquiring and developing useful technologies; and
  6. Maintain a long-range plan.
