Monitoring Information: Oregon documents court performance relevant to time standards by producing reports with relevant information compiled at both local and statewide levels.

Reports relevant to timely processing are accessible to all judges, the division managers, local Trial Court Administrators, the State Court Administrator, the Chief Justice, and the legislature.  Reports are updated monthly and available on demand, quarterly reports are published related to all key performance measures.

The Oregon Judicial Department is working on a dashboard reporting system to make the right information available to the right people at the right time.  The dashboard reporting system will be real-time reporting and available via the department's intranet site.  The tool offers administrators and judges the ability to drill down to varying levels of detail to
problem solve specific areas.
Notes: Oregon has ten key performance measures which they monitor and publish outcomes quarterly.  They also report progress towards these performance measures to the Oregon legislature. Their key performance measures include the Oregon Standards for Timely Disposition, compliance with juvenile timelines, as well as other performance areas.While Oregon does not list juvenile cases in their Standard, they do have legislative timelines for juvenile cases which they monitor and include as one of their key performance measures.  The requirements are: Juvenile timelines:
100% time to jurisdiction within 60 days
100% time to 1st permanency hearing within 425 days
