The mission of the Utah Courts is to provide the people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law.
In 2004, the Utah Judicial Council began implementing a court performance measurement system developed in part by the National Center for State Courts. The performance management system helps courts identify and monitor important performance measures and make improvements to better serve the needs of the public. The measures currently monitored on this website include:
- Access and Fairness in the Courts: Results of surveys of court users in Utah courthouses
- Trust and Confidence of the Public in the Court System: Results of telephone survey of the general public
- Judicial Performance Evaluation: Summaries of bi-annual attorney surveys
- Effective Use of Jurors: Counts of citizens qualified, summonses and called for jury service
- Case Management Measures
- Clearance Rate: The number of court cases being completed or disposed of as a percentage of court cases being filed.
- Time to Disposition: The time being taken to complete or dispose of types of court cases.
- Age of Active Pending Cases: Counts of pending court cases and length of time they have been pending.
- Juvenile Court Report Card: Performance measures specific to the Juvenile Court
- Collection of Restitution, Fines and Fees: The amounts of restitution, fines and fees being collected by courts and sent for collection.
- Court Employee Satisfaction: Summaries of court employee surveys
