Summary

Summary

The Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee’s Fiscal Planning Subcommittee recommends that the Judicial Council approve one request for Trial Court Trust Fund (TCTF) funds to be held on behalf of the trial courts. Under the Judicial Council-adopted process, courts may request funding reduced as a result of a court’s exceeding the 1 percent fund balance cap, to be retained in the TCTF for the benefit of that court. The total amount requested that would be reduced from their fiscal year 2016-2017 allocations for exceeding the cap is $732,981.

Recommendation

Recommendation

Based on actions taken at its November 10, 2016, meeting, the Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee’s (TCBAC’s) Fiscal Planning Subcommittee recommends that the Judicial Council, effective December 15, 2016, allocate and designate $732,981 in Trial Court Trust Fund fund balance to the Superior Court of Santa Barbara County from funding to be reduced from the court’s allocation in fiscal year (FY) 2016-2017 as a result of the court’s exceeding the 1 percent fund balance cap because of contracts that could not be encumbered in FY 2015-2016 due to delays in the implementation of its case management system. The funds would be distributed to the court in FY 2016-2017 (see Attachment B1).

 

Attachment A, Summary of Requests for TCTF Funds to be Held on Behalf of the Court, provides a summary of the court requests, including the amount of the request and other relevant information. Attachment C, Judicial Council-Approved Process, Criteria, and Required Information for Trial Court Trust Fund Fund Balance Held on Behalf of the Courts, provides the recommendations proposed by the TCBAC and approved by the Judicial Council at its April 15, 2016, business meeting.
