EVALUATION SERVICES REQUEST FORM - NEW MUNICIPALITIES
C.R.S. 13-10-114.5(3)(a) requires that on and after January 1, 2020, each municipality shall provide independent indigent defense. The OADC can serve as a nonpartisan entity to evaluate court-appointed counsel services to fulfill that statutory requirement.
Pursuant to C.R.S §21-2-108(2), any municipality seeking the assistance of the OADC to evaluate the independence and competence of court-appointed counsel must request this assistance by September 1 of each year. For services beginning January 1, 2021, Municipalities must complete this form and submit it by September 1, 2019.
If you want OADC evaluation assistance, please submit your request by completing this form electronically no later than September 1, 2019. If we do not receive this information by September 1, 2019, we will be unable to address personnel and funding issues in our annual budget, resulting in the possibility of not being able to provide attorney evaluation services.
If you have any questions about this form, please contact Maria at firstname.lastname@example.org, 303-515-6936.
