The purpose of the Trial Court Facility Modification Advisory Committee (TCFMAC) is to provide ongoing oversight of the judicial branch program that manages renovations, facilities operations, maintenance, and real estate for trial courts throughout the state. The TCFMAC will oversee the work of the Judicial Council staff in its management of court facilities statewide.
The TCFMAC will be a standing committee of the Judicial Council of California, charged with the following responsibilities concerning courthouse facilities:
The Trial Court Facility Modification Working Group was established by Judicial Council policy in 2005. The working group first met in April 2006 and operated under the Trial Court Facility Modifications Policy, adopted by the Judicial Council in 2005 and revised on July 27, 2012. The working group’s primary oversight responsibilities included reviewing statewide facility modification requests and approving facility modification funding.
The working group’s charge was formalized by the Judicial Council on December 14, 2012, and the working group was assigned additional oversight responsibility for the operations and maintenance of existing facilities, noncapital-related real estate transactions, energy management, and environmental management and sustainability. On April 25, 2013, the working group’s status was elevated to that of advisory committee.
An alternative Court-Funded Facilities Request (CFRs) approval process was submitted and approved by the Judicial Council on August 23, 2013, requiring all CFRs to be reviewed and approved by the TCFMAC.
