GEORGIA ELECTRONIC CONVICTION PROCESSING SYSTEM


INTRODUCING GECPS

  • In order for the DDS to follow mandated guidelines, one approved, standardized, and secure method we know now as GECPS was created.

  • No other electronic transmittal will be approved as of March, 1, 2005

GEORGIA ELECTRONIC CONVICTION PROCESSING SYSTEM


History of GECPS

  • SB 229 – During the 2003 General Assembly, Georgia courts were encouraged to promptly deliver all mandatory and points bearing convictions within a mandated 10 days of conviction. $0.40 per citation transmitted electronically and $0.10 by any other means.

  • HB 501 – Lawfully states for the 2005 session, that all Georgia courts shall transmit electronically by a future date determined by the commissioner. Paying only $0.40 for electronic transmittal.

History of GECPS

  • On April 27, 2006, Governor Perdue signed into law HB 1253, which included a provision to further strengthen the reporting requirements outlined in O.C.G.A 40-5-53(b). Effective July 1, 2006:

    (Removed below from HB501)

    ....where are a court has not implemented transmittal by electronic means, the commissioner may require such court or courts to submit by electronic means no later than a future date to be determined by the commissioner.

    HB 1253 removes any option for courts to report

    convictions to DDS by paper.

Step 2: GECPS Testing

  • After a GECPS Outreach Specialist receives registration and creates a user account, an e-mail will be sent to the court confirming testing can be begin with the user id.

  • The court will need to call for the password.

    • Passwords are given to the court and not the software vendor for liability reasons.

Step 2: GECPS Testing

  • Testing ensures all record formats and data specifications meet file layout requirements according to Implementation Guide for each transaction type and the court understands the GECPS procedure.

  • Section 7 in the Implementation Guide explains in more detail what to expect throughout testing.
