Report 2014-107: Judicial Branch of California: Because of Questionable Fiscal and Operational Decisions, the Judicial Council and the Administrative Office of the Courts Have Not Maximized the Funds Available for the Courts (Release Date: January 2015)

Recommendation #17 To: Judicial Council of California

To increase transparency, the Judicial Council should conduct a more thorough review of the AOC's implementation of the evaluation committee's recommendations by more closely scrutinizing the actions the AOC asserts it has taken to complete directives.

6-Month Agency Response

The Judicial Council's Executive and Planning (E&P) Committee held a public meeting on March 12-13, 2015, to review all completed Strategic Evaluation Committee recommendations/Judicial Council directives. E&P requested a new format for reporting on the status of implementation efforts and identified new categories to better reflect the implementation activities. A revised status report and webpage on the organizational restructuring of the council's staff has been developed. (See web page at: www.courts.ca.gov/19334.htm)
