Tennessee Issues Appellate Court E-Filing RFP

The Tennessee State Courts issued an RFP 15-1001 on November 9, 2015 for an Appellate E-Filing System.

Proposals are due on December 14, 2015 and there are additional deadlines in the request as well.

Tennessee's RFP web page is:

The full RFP document in Microsoft Word format is available on that web page along with other associated documents.

The web page states:
"The objective of this RFP is to acquire and implement an electronic court filing (e-filing) software solution that satisfies the Tennessee appellate courts’ requirements for a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software package or licensed service. The electronic filing system will permit court case participants to use the Internet to file permitted documents in appellate cases.  The system will provide the ability for appellate staff review and approval.  For approved filings, the information and documentation contained in the electronic filing will be populated to the court case management system.  E-mail integration is critical. The initial scope of the e-filing system will include initial and subsequent filings in appellate cases.  In the future, the e-filing system may be expanded to include trial court case filings.  The electronic filing system should have proven capability in appellate and trial courts."
