   Dean, Heather L
Origination Date:
Recommended Endorser:
   District and Municipal Court Management Association
Request Type: Change or Enhancement
Which Systems are affected? Judicial Information System (JIS)
Business Area: Accounting
Communities Impacted: County Clerks
CLJ Judges
CLJ Managers
Public and Other Users
Impact if not Resolved: Medium
Impact Description:
Since courts cannot pull the amount owing from JIS when we set up on-line payment engines defendants are able to enter the amount they think they owe resulting in overpayment and underpayments.
What is the Business Problem or Opportunity
When courts of limited jurisdication set up e-commernce payment engine for the public to pay on their tickets/citations courts are unable to pull the amount owing i.e. there is no method to pull from JIS the amount a defendant owes. Therefore, when a court sets up a payment site there is no method for us to notify a defendant how much they owe.
Expected Benefit:
The public would be able to know how much they owe a court of limited jurisdication on their e-payment engine sites.
