The Office of the State Court Administrator (OSCA) oversees Oregon's statewide, state-funded court system. OSCA promotes efficient, statewide improvement and supports local courts in responding to community and statewide needs.

The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court is the administrative head of the Oregon Judicial Department – a statewide, unified court system with almost 200 judges and more than 1600 full and part-time staff. The Chief Justice appoints the State Court Administrator who serves as OJD's chief administrative officer. The State Court Administrator is a position created by statute. The State Court Administrator assists the Chief Justice in supervising the state courts, by setting out the statewide personnel and administrative rules and policies that courts must follow as being part of a unified state court system.

Our State Court Administrator (SCA) is responsible for making the Judicial Department work day-to-day. The SCA oversees all administrative and executive operations of the state trial and appellate courts, the indigence verification program, and the foster care review program and carries out these responsibilities through the eleven divisions and programs described above. Division directors report directly to the SCA.
