Georgia Issues RFI for an ADR Module

The Georgia Commission on Dispute Resolution has released an RFI an alternative dispute resolution module.

The ADR Module RFI is a state and local partnership between JC/AOC and the Commission created to achieve optimal pricing for replacement technology software which does not exist or has reached its end of life.

The Georgia Commission on Dispute Resolution is the policy-making body appointed by the Georgia Supreme Court to oversee the development of court-connected ADR programs in Georgia. The Commission, composed of judges, lawyers and non-lawyer members, meets on a regular basis to consider issues important to the development of court-connected ADR in Georgia.

This plan enables any superior, state, probate, magistrate or juvenile court in Georgia to offer litigants alternatives to trial under provisions set forth in the Georgia Supreme Court Alternative Dispute Resolution Rules and the filing fee surcharge legislation which supports the administration of local ADR programs.

The following schedule is set for the offer:
