Judicial Branch Budget: Workload Formula Adjustment Request Process Policy Update (Action Required)

body

Summary

Summary

The Workload-based Allocation and Funding Methodology (WAFM) Adjustment Request Process is used by trial courts to suggest modifications to the workload formula used for trial court funding. The Trial Court Budget Advisory Committee (TCBAC) recommends that the Judicial Council approve a recommendation to make changes to the language of the policy to replace references to “Workload-based Allocation and Funding Methodology (WAFM)” to “Workload Formula,” to eliminate references to workload need, and to streamline the language of the policy to make it clearer. The updates will also permit the chair of TCBAC to more quickly refer Adjustment Requests to other advisory committees as deemed appropriate.
