California Statewide Collection Services for Court-Ordered Debt

California Statewide Collection Services for Court-Ordered Debt

The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), on behalf of the superior courts of California and the counties of California, seeks the services of one or more vendors to enhance the collection of California court-ordered debt.

California Senate Bill 940 calls for the development of a comprehensive collections program for courts and counties. SB 940 establishes the framework to ensure that fees, fines, penalties and assessments ordered by the court are collected. Further, the bill recognizes that the prompt and effective enforcement of court orders is an important element of collections and helps ensure respect for court orders. This Request for Proposal is a result of the SB 940 efforts and seeks one or more vendors to provide collection services in two areas:

  • Part One, Enhanced Collections, will allow courts or counties to utilize a Vendor's services to supplement court or county collection efforts (these efforts may range from courts or counties with no in-house efforts to courts or counties with collections units);
  • Part Two, Discharged Accounts/Accounts to be Discharged, will allow a court or county to turn over accounts where all efforts have been made in trying to collect on this debt.

Proposals must be received prior to 1 p.m. on July 20, 2004. Only written responses will be accepted. Responses should be sent by registered or certified mail or by hand delivery.
