The provisions regarding the places that the report must be posted are identical to those specifying where

the Government Code Sec. 37.003 lists of attorneys ad litem, guardians ad litem, guardians, and mediators

must be posted. If possible, court clerks should coordinate with the courts in the county to identify a common

place where this information can be posted in order to avoid confusion regarding the location of the various

lists and reports required to be posted under SB 1876 and SB 1369.

The Office of Court Administration is updating the reporting forms and system to reflect the changes made

by SB 1369 and to ensure that any reporting requirements mandated by the Supreme Court but not included

in SB 1369 continue to be addressed. OCA anticipates the Supreme Court’s order will be amended to reflect

the changes required by SB 1369 and that the reporting of court appointees other than those listed in SB

1369 will continue in effect under the Supreme Court’s order. A “Frequently Asked Questions”

page has

been added to OCA’s website to assist clerks in determining how the changes mandated by SB 1369 will

change the way they currently report to OCA.
