Questions and Answers

The Judicial Council of California (Judicial Council) is conducting this RFP for the benefit of the following California judicial branch entities (JBEs): the 58 Superior Courts of California (collectively, “Superior Courts” or “trial courts”), the California Courts of Appeal, the Supreme Court of California, the Habeas Corpus Resource Center, and the Judicial Council. Through this RFP, the Judicial Council intends to award one (1) and up to five (5) leveraged procurement agreements, also referred to as “Master Agreements,” to provide statewide limited telephonic and remote interpreter services for the JBEs and support the goals of the judicial branch. The goals are as follows:

  • Ensure language access for limited English proficient (LEP) and deaf/hard of hearing court users throughout the California judicial branch;
  • Enable LEPs and deaf/hard of hearing court users to meaningfully participate in the judicial system, including courtroom proceedings, court services and programs, self-help centers, public counters, and other court-related settings; and
  • Allow the judicial branch to meet the wide range of language access needs when a JBE is unable to secure a California certified or registered court interpreter.

The Master Agreements awarded from this RFP are intended to be used by any and all JBEs.

The person or entity submitting a proposal (Proposer) entering into a Master Agreement commits to implementing and operating these services in any JBE requesting to engage under a Participation Addendum as set forth in this RFP. Any Master Agreement awarded as a result of this RFP is nonexclusive. The Judicial Council may have other agreements for the same or similar services, and each JBE reserves the right to provide or have others provide the same or similar services. The Judicial Council reserves the right to reject any and all proposals, in whole or in part, and to award or not award any contracts based on submitted proposals. Each JBE is free to conduct its own solicitation not connected with this RFP or any resulting contract.
