Affiliated Computer Services Inc. has won a $12.5 million contract from the Delaware Administrative Office of the Courts to provide an integrated justice information management system, the company announced today.
Under the contract, ACS of Dallas will implement a statewide system that will coordinate case and financial management information, provide integrated case data, and allow citizens and the justice community to access court information online and file court documents electronically.
The system will serve the Delaware Supreme Court, Court of Chancery, Superior Court, Family Court, Court of Common Pleas and the Justice of the Peace Court. It also will support courts in each of the state's three counties.
The ACS contract is the centerpiece of the Delaware Courts Organized to Serve project. The project's goal is to enhance court operations through greater automation and process standardization.
ACS, a provider of information technology and business process outsourcing solutions, has about 43,000 employees and annual sales of $4.1 billion for fiscal 2004.
