The National Litigation Inventory Reporting System (NLIRS) project was initiated to establish a single integrated system for tracking and reporting on INAC's inventory of litigation cases. The system is to be based on a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) product with full case management support. It will replace a variety of existing tools and databases used by teams and individuals in the branch.
The introduction of a new system will include the move to standardized processes for case management and information management across the branch. Litigation Management and Resolution Branch (LMRB) management will be able to substantially reduce risks related to case and information management by harmonizing its processes, consolidating its information and eliminating the wide array of current tracking tools.
