WASHINGTON – Orange County Clerk-Recorder’s Auto-Indexing and Redaction – Increasing the Accuracy and Access to the Public Records Program has been recognized with an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties (NACo). The awards honor innovative, effective county government programs that enhance services for residents.
Orange County’s Auto-Indexing and Redaction system increases the accuracy and security of the public records through the use of innovative software. Some of the benefits of this system include allowing the Clerk-Recorder Department to make recorded real property documents available to the public 48 hours after the documents have been recorded, eliminating the need for an outside redaction vendor, cost savings and increasing the accuracy of the records by eliminating the manual entry of information.
“We are honored to be recognized for the National Achievement Award. This new system improves our services and reduces operating costs,” said Clerk-Recorder Hugh Nguyen. “This program will allow us to continue improving the way we serve the mortgage and title industries and the residents of Orange County. We are always looking for ways to make it easier for our customers to access the public records while at the same time becoming more efficient and cost effective.”
NACo President Bryan Desloge said, “Counties overcome complex challenges, provide essential services and constantly do more with less. We applaud these Achievement Award-winning counties for outstanding efforts to improve residents’ quality of life.”
Nationally, awards are given in 18 different categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services counties provide. The categories include children and youth, criminal justice, county administration, information technology, health, civic engagement and many more.
NACo will recognize award-winning counties at its 2017 Annual Conference and Exposition July 21–24 in Franklin County, Ohio.
Started in 1970, NACo’s annual Achievement Award Program is designed to recognize innovative county government programs. Each nominee is judged on its own merits and not against other applications received.
