About the USAID JSS Activity
This is an Activity which focuses on monitoring and sustaining the implementation of Ghana`s Case Tracking System (CTS), which is a software system instituted by Chemonics International and its partners, aimed at employing technology solutions to track criminal cases from inception until being disposed of. The Activity which is being implemented in forty (40) target Districts in seven (7) Regions of Ghana combines mutually complementary methodologies including; Rights-Based, People-Centered and enhanced Social Accountability Approaches based on lessons learnt in the justice space. It aims at ensuring that marginalized communities through mobilization and innovative public education programs are aware of and supported to track progress of the delivery of the CTS. The Activity also focuses on monitoring and advocating for the utilization of the CTS by targeted key Justice Sector Institutions (JSIs) namely; (Ghana Police Service, Ghana Prisons Service, Attorney General`s Department, Legal Aid Commission, Economic and Organized Crime Office and Judicial Service), mobilizing Citizen Monitoring Groups (CMGs) to monitor the CTS process, facilitating demand for its functionality, accountability and responsiveness by relevant State Institutions, promoting legislative and policy reform, and advocating better coordination among the key JSIs and civil society. These will be achieved by; increasing citizen knowledge and access to Justice Sector services, strengthening advocacy interventions for accountability of key Justice Sector Institutions to improve justice delivery and increasing citizens’ oversight and monitoring of criminal cases. By so doing, these interventions collectively aim to speed up case processing and disposal of cases more timeously, effectively tracing cases and dockets within the justice space whilst ensuring the elimination of injustices in Ghana`s criminal justice system.
