The Supreme Court of Ohio is pleased to announce a one-time funding opportunity for Ohio Adult Drug (including OVI and Substance Abuse and Mental Illness (SAMI) dockets) and Veteran Treatment Courts certified by the Supreme Court's Commission on Specialized Dockets. The mission of this opportunity is to fund new or upgraded case management systems to help standardize docket processes and collect Specialized Docket data, including the creation of an interface with the Supreme Court’s data system pursuant to Sup.R. 26.20, Appendix I, Standard 12 (see attachment A).
The applicant's project shall include a system that is web-based and offer the following capabilities:
- A centralized system where staff can track participants, perform case planning, schedule dockets, create staffing reports, satisfy state data reporting, and ultimately assist in assessing adherence to best practice standards.
- The system should support the courts’ use of the United States Department of Veterans Affairs’ Veterans Re-Entry Search Service (VRSS) for determining the veteran status of people referred to the docket.
- The specialized docket case management system shall be capable of producing a report containing data required by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) from specialized dockets received certain funding from OhioMHAS under its Drug Court Subsidy and Addiction Treatment Program funding sources (see attachment B).
This fund supports Ohio Adult Drug (including OVI and Substance Abuse and Mental Illness (SAMI) dockets) and Veteran Treatment Courts certified by the Specialized Dockets section of the Supreme Court of Ohio by providing financial resources to aid in the implementation of case management system projects.

The Supreme Court of Ohio has developed a website to provide guidance and direction to Ohio courts in their efforts to procure goods and services such as technology (audio/video equipment, case management systems, etc.). The site includes resources designed to guide courts through the various stages of procurement, including requests for proposals, contracting, and project management. While these resources will serve as helpful and informative reference tools for courts, it is not an all-inclusive instructional guide. The Supreme Court of Ohio remains committed to assisting Ohio courts and providing guidance in regards to large procurements when needed.
