JLOS holds Integrated Management Information management Systems Inception Workshop

The Justice, Law and Order Sector is on course to implement the much awaited Integrated Management Information System (IJMIS) . This was revealed during an inception workshop held at Imperial Royale Hotel on Friday April 29 2011 where the IJMIS Taskforce members drawn from all JLOS institutions met to discuss the draft inception report developed by the consultant - M/S Realtech Systems Limited - a Uganda based Information and Communications Technology firm. The Head, Policy and Planning Unit in the Judiciary and the Workshop chairperson Mr. James Eceret said that the IJMIS would present JLOS with dynamic information management functionalities and also create a unified data collection platform.

Peharps the most important reason for introduction of information technology in JLOS lies in the fact that computerization will go a long way in ensuring that the quality of information required by justice administrators is of high quality and is easily accessible. With an integrated data management system, JLOS institutions will be able to:

• Process cases faster
• Process records faster
• Secure data
• Share data
• Track suspects faster
• Generate cause lists with ease
• Rationalize the allocation of staff vis a vis the workload
• Strengthen judicial independence through automated allocation of cases
• Strengthen performance management
• Strengthen monitoring and evaluation

The IJMIS design and developement phases are to be preceded by a comprehensive systems study covering all JLOS institutions. A key output of the systems study will be baseline data on existing processes, workflows, people skills and current technology infrastructure.
