In 2007, the 15th Judicial District Court in combination with City of Ann Arbor government officials contacted the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) to request that an operational and management assessment be performed on the Court. A contract was signed with NCSC in February 2008. The assessment was conducted over a four month period, February 2008 through May 2008. The focus of the study was to assess where the Court ranks in relation to other similar jurisdiction courts across the nation and to discover what the Court can do to improve internal processes as well as general public services.
The final version of the National Center for State Courts Operational and Management Review was released on October 9, 2008.
