Jury Service Education Campaign

A Request for Proposals (RFP) was issued on April 16, 2002. The Administrative Office of the Courts seeks the services of a consultant with expertise in marketing communications and direct marketing to develop and implement a plan to increase compliance with juror summonses. This program will include testing of a model juror summons and a coordinated public education program to build awareness of a major reform in the courts—the one-day or one-trial system for jury service.

This RFP is the means for prospective service providers to submit their qualifications to the AOC and request selection as a service provider. The AOC may select, from the responses to this RFP, a service provider qualified to develop and implement this program in collaboration with the agency and selected courts.

The Jury Service Education project is governed by the following general principles:

  • The AOC will contract with a selected service provider using a master agreement that sets out the overall scope of the services to be provided, the obligations of the parties, and other provisions.
  • The AOC reserves the right to reject any and all proposals, as well as the right to conduct or not conduct a similar proposal in the future. This request for proposals is in no way an agreement, obligation, or contract, and the AOC is not responsible for the cost of preparation. One copy of a submitted proposal will be retained for official files and become a public record.

Vendor proposals must be received prior to 5 p.m. on May 3, 2002, and include all required attachments. Oral responses will not be accepted. For further information regarding this RFP, please contact James Carroll, Executive Office Programs, Administrative Office of the Courts, 455 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, California 94102. Telephone: 415-865-7740.
