TOPEKA—The Kansas Supreme Court appointed two people to serve on subcommittees of the eCourt Steering Committee, which is overseeing implementation of a statewide centralized case management system.

Mike Stewart will serve on the eCourt Infrastructure Subcommittee. Stewart is district court information services manager in the Office of Judicial Administration.

Amber Smith will serve on both the eCourt Rules Subcommittee and the eCourt Workshare Subcommittee. Smith is deputy judicial administrator in the Office of Judicial Administration.

The centralized case management system is a key component in the Supreme Court’s eCourt plan. Its implementation in courts statewide will allow district and appellate case data to reside on a single web-based platform, transforming the way the state court system serves the people of Kansas.

The primary goals of the centralized case management system implementation are to:

  • improve case processing in the district and appellate courts;

  • enable work sharing between district courts, primarily among clerks and court services officers;

  • enable web-based sharing of public information;

  • increase the efficiency of information delivery to district and appellate court judges;

  • increase operational efficiency and effectiveness through automating certain activities and streamlining other operations;

  • improve data quality and integrity;

  • improve performance measurement, analysis, and reporting through enhanced information collection, storage, retrieval, and analysis;

  • enable data sharing between various governmental entities based on information security requirements, contribution to the effective administration of justice, and need; and

  • maintain and improve the ability to process electronic payments.
