The Office of the State Auditor (OSA) is soliciting proposals to conduct an IndependentVerification & Validation review (IV&V review) of the Colorado Judicial Department’s(the Department) Integrated Colorado Courts E-Filing System (ICCES) and JudicialPaper on Demand (jPOD) system development projects.The Colorado Judicial Department’s mission states, “The Colorado Judicial Departmentis a fair and impartial system of justice that: protects constitutional and statutory rightsand liberties; assures equal access to justice; provides fair, timely and constructiveresolution of cases; ensures public safety; supervises offenders; and facilitates victim andcommunity reparations.”The Colorado state court system consists of appellate and trial courts. The appellate courtconsists of the Colorado Court of Appeals and the Colorado Supreme Court. The trialcourts consist of district courts, county courts, and water courts. A detailed description of these courts is available under Section IV-Supplemental Information. Most of thesecourts currently use an online vendor system, LexisNexis, for all electronic filings (e-filings) by attorneys or their paralegals for general and limited jurisdiction cases (i.e.,county and district civil, probate, water, and domestic relations). The LexisNexis systemallows the attorneys and courts to e-file case documents and court orders and servenotices and other legal documents to case parties.In 2008, the Department conducted a feasibility study to develop its own system thatcould replace LexisNexis. In 2009, the Department obtained the necessary authorizationto build a new, in-house e-filing system called ICCES. The Department plans to replacethe current LexisNexis system with ICCES by January 1, 2013.
