eFiling Program Receives International Award

The Montgomery County Clerk of Courts and the Common Pleas Court, General Division have received the prestigious “Eagle Award” from the International Association of Clerks, Recorders, Election Officials and Treasurers for the Integrated eFiling System.

“Any time you are recognized for implementing such a groundbreaking practice, you can’t help but feel incredibly proud, ” said Barbara P. Gorman, Administrative Judge, Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.  “This award is testament to the hard work and ingenuity of court and clerk staff and the cooperation between the Executive and Judicial branches of government.”  

Five years ago, the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts and the Common Pleas Court, General Division pledged to do business more efficiently and effectively in anticipation of future budget cuts.  After months of research and testing, the Integrated eFiling Solution became a reality in Montgomery County.

Today, all civil cases and subsequent pleadings are filed over the internet rather than by paper.  The system is an integrated electronic filing and case management/document management solution that not only enables the transmission of documents to the Clerk’s Office in an electronic format, but also the transmission of data to the Clerk’s case management system.

“This award is well-deserved.  The court and clerk staff labored to make the Integrated eFiling System a reality in Montgomery County,” said Gregory A. Brush, Montgomery County Clerk of Courts.  “The intergovernmental cooperation between the Courts and the Clerk’s Office demonstrates an exceptional commitment to providing an efficient and cost-effective service to the local legal community and provides the public with better access to the Court.”

The recipient of the “Eagle Award” must meet one or more of the following criteria:

-        Offer a new service to county/jurisdiction/parish residents, fill gaps in the availability of existing services, or tap new revenue resources;

-        Improve the administration or enhance the cost effectiveness of an existing county/jurisdiction/parish government program;

-        Promote intergovernmental cooperation and coordination in addressing shared problems;

-        Support the "Green" initiative by creating new ways to be environmentally conscious.
