The Nigeria Court Case Management System Project reached an important milestone in May, with the installation of an automated court case management system (CCMS) at the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
NCSC has worked closely with the Nigerian National Judicial Council (NJC), and its appointed software developer CMC Limited (Tata Group), to develop a case management system that improves the efficiency and effectiveness of Nigerian courts, and reduces costs at all levels including hardware, network, software licenses, and IT staff support.
The CCMS is currently undergoing User Acceptance Testing at the Supreme Court of Nigeria, and it is anticipated that software installation and User Acceptance Testing will take place at the Nigerian Court of Appeals and High Court before the end of the year.
In August 2013, the NJC contracted with NCSC to design and implement an automated court case management system for Nigerian courts. The CCMS will be introduced into pilot courts in Nigeria at three levels: the Supreme Court, the Court of Appeals, and the High Court. In addition to providing consulting and technical services, NCSC also provided the NJC with a software framework to support its CCMS.
