2011 Annual Report of the Director
Administrative Office of the United States Courts
As required by statute, the Director must publish an Annual Report of activities of the Administrative Office (AO) and submit it to the Judicial Conference and Congress. For the first time, this report is being prepared and transmitted electronically. The cost savings are not enormous, but the message—the Judiciary looks closely at how it spends its funds—is a crucial one and a clear reflection of our firm commitment to cost containment.
It is a great honor to be the first judge to serve as Director of the Administrative Office since its creation 72 years ago. I appreciate the confidence and support of the Chief Justice, as well as the fine work that has been done by my predecessor and friend, Jim Duff.
