The Court Technology Framework (CTF) is a concept developed by the Joint Technology Committee (JTC) and the National Center for State Courts (NCSC) as a tool to provide context for existing, and identification of possible new, technology standards initiatives for the courts community.
The JTC has outlined the following goals and objectives for the CTF:
1. Provide an organized view of the increasingly complex landscape of technologies and related standards
2. Define a standard set of components and interfaces that make up a comprehensive court IT environment
3. Help courts more readily identify opportunities for improved efficiency and cost savings through the use of technology
4. Promote alignment of IT initiatives with business goals of the court
