Five new positions with the Indiana Supreme Court have been created to help kick-start a statewide case management system.
The court ;s Judicial Technology and Automation Committee has posted the five openings and is accepting applications until March 30 for staff attorney, configuration and modification analyst, software quality assurance (SQA) lead analyst, court reporter SME, and a training and help desk specialist.
Each position is dedicated to designing, developing, and implementing the largest technology project in the history of Indiana courts, according to Mary DePrez, director and counsel for trial court technology. In November, the Supreme Court entered into a $13.4 million contract with Tyler Technologies in Dallas to connect all the state ;s county courts and make sure the 1.5 million cases can be managed statewide.
This process began in 2002, when the JTAC and the JTAC Statewide Governing Board jointly recommended the process based on an automation effort. Four years later, more companies were proven capable of creating such systems, some of which have been implemented in other states.
To start the implementation, Monroe County and Washington Township Small Claims Court are assisting with designing the system for the state, DePrez said.
These five positions could be the first of more as the project advances, she said.
Those interested in applying for any of these positions can send resumes to [email protected] or JTAC Jobs, Indiana Supreme Court, Division of State Court Administration, 115 W. Washington St., Suite 1080, Indianapolis, IN 46204. Phone calls or faxes are not accepted. Additional information about the positions is available online at www.in.gov/judiciary/jtac/jobs.html.
