Goals | Accomplishments | Members


The Monitoring and Evaluation Subcommittee works to monitor and evaluate efforts to implement recommendations made by the Gender Fairness Task Force, the Racial and Ethnic Issues Task Force, the Implementation Committee, the Task Force on Access to State Courts for Persons with Disabilities, and the Access Committee. It works to

  • acknowledge these efforts
  • provide technical assistance
  • serve as a clearinghouse of information
  • encourage the entities to evaluate the impact on providing access to justice


Task Force on Access to State Courts for Persons with Disabilities

In 2006, the Monitoring and Evaluation Subcommittee (M & E) was charged with monitoring and evaluating the implementation of recommendations identified in the final report of the Task Force on Access to State Courts for Persons with Disabilities.  The M & E completed its work in November 2007 and issued a status report.

Gender Fairness
From 1999 - 2001, the Monitoring and Evaluation Subcommittee surveyed all justice-system entities targeted by the Oregon Supreme Court/Oregon State Bar Task Force on Gender Fairness Report to assess progress on each recommendation contained in the report and develop suggested next steps. The Access Committee released an implementation status report, Gender Fairness 2002, in October 2002.

Racial/Ethnic Fairness

The Access Committee helped plan and support the annual Governor's Summit on the Overrepresentation of Minorities in the Juvenile Justice System in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006 and 2007. This event brings together a diverse group of public and private entities to collaborate on ways to ensure racial/ethnic fairness in the justice system.

Cultural Competence
The Access Committee worked with an ad hoc intergovernmental committee on a proposal to establish a statewide structure to develop, coordinate, and implement strategies to improve state government's cultural competence. The Oregon Department of Administrative Services (DAS) approved the proposal and established a Cultural Competency Council in 2002. The Chief Justice is a Council member.
