Committees & Workgroups
CCOC utilizes Committees and Workgroups to gather information and recommendations as well as to establish processes. Generally, Workgroups consist of Clerks and staff from various Clerk offices around the State. All staff are invited to participate in Workgroup meetings. Committees are made up of specific Clerks as designated by the Executive Council. Proposals from a Workgroup will pass to the relevant Committee to be discussed and voted on before being passed to the Executive Council as a recommendation. For more information please visit the CCOC Committees page.
CCOC also utilizes various services on a contractual basis as needed. Two types of contracts are utilized: "On-going" and "As Needed". "On-going" contracts are those contractors that would like to be on a list of available help to be chosen for specific task assignments as we need them. The amount of services requested or available is not guaranteed but the contractors have been vetted and approved to be placed on an Available Vendors or Contractor's List. "As Needed" contracts are specific in nature and are opened via an RFP process for a specific nature and a specific amount of hours. For more information, please visit the Contractual Services page.
