Chairman Brinson introduced Ginger Helms, AOC Program Manager who provided the Board with a presentation of the Electronic Discovery Project. The presentation included the Discovery Automation Process with the benefits to the users, as well as some of the features that the system offers. There were numerous screen shots of the system in action to allow for a more detailed understanding of the look and feel of the system. Ginger also offered the Board a timeline for the various releases of the system and a chart of the constituents that are served by the system. This presentation led to a discussion regarding the Evidence Numbers by the SBI crime lab and the planned revisions to the procedures.
