Intent to Award

The City of Seattle, through its Information Technology Department (Seattle IT), seeks a consultant (Consultant) to provide an Options Analysis of three possible solutions for consideration as a replacement to the current Seattle Municipal Court’s (SMC) Municipal Court Information System (MCIS) and its associated web applications.

The purpose of replacing SMC’s case management system is to plan and implement the deployment of an enterprise case management system, comprised of multiple components or multiple applications, that will be used by the SMC and the criminal justice community. SMC is mandated by law to provide a continuous permanent record of court case events, including dates, hearings and outcomes — MCIS has provided that record for nearly 30 years.

This technology solution will replace the current legacy case management system (MCIS) with a newer, more flexible solution that will provide support for the current and future business and technology needs of the SMC and the criminal justice community for the next couple of decades.

MCIS is one of the last City legacy systems, developed internally in 1990 using IBM’s Informix platform to capture key court case events, as well as for parking and infractions, probation and defendant financial accounts. The Seattle Police Department, City Attorney, King County Department of Public Defense, King County Jail, the Department of Licensing, State Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC), and criminal justice related stakeholders rely on MCIS for operational and required records keeping purposes. Business and technology needs have evolved considerably in the last three decades; this requires the SMC to replace MCIS with an updated system that can be agile to accommodate current and future technology and business needs.
