Guam - Department of the Interior Assistant Secretary for Insular Areas Tony Babauta joined members of the Judiciary of Guam this morning to discuss the progress of Phase II of the courts' case management system. Phase II of the project cost $3.7 million and was funded through USDOI.
The court in October of last year went live with Phase I of the system. Supreme Court Chief Justice F. Philip Carbullido says with the implementation of this next phase, court customers will have greater access to records as well as the ability to make payments online. "This will bring us in to the modern age of technology in reference to promoting efficiency, not only within judiciary but with our stakeholders not only the bar but our various law enforcement associations and ultimately the community," he said.
"It's about transparency, it's about efficiency, it's about being in a court system that is responsive to the island community."
Phase II is anticipated to go live by October of this year.
