Management includes areas such as personnel (HR) policy, IT and the use of new information technologies, buildings/accommodation, procurement and tenders, communications, and personnel and organisation. In each of these areas, the court boards are responsible for their own organisation, while the Council’s responsibility is to set parameters, support the courts with specialised expertise, promote cooperation between the courts, and initiate national projects and policies. Examples of this national policy include the recruitment and selection of new judges; judges’ training programmes; and the digitisation of the Judiciary. The
National Service Centre for the Judiciary, established in 2011, was structured in a series of stages in 2012 and is currently operational. A newly implemented financial information system (Leonardo) supports the centralisation of the management processes.
