Certified Vendors

In order to help assure quality, completeness, compatibility, and compliance with State laws, it is the Authority's intent to only receive Clerk of Superior Court data from the certified computing systems. Certification is based on meeting minimum requirements for particular program participation and not upon suitability for all needs of Clerks of Superior Court.

System Guidelines

Preparation and transmission of county deed, lien, plat index records and related images to the Central Collection System is critical for the proper functioning of the statewide system.   Local data capture, formatting and transmission is standardized and carefully controlled to ensure the functional integrity of the data in the system.

The guidelines present the local system requirements and data standards and the technical requirements local systems must adhere to be compatible with the Real Estate System.  All local systems must demonstrate and maintain compliance with these requirements.
