Chapter 10: Judiciary-Related Offices
For specific criteria regarding judiciary-related offices, refer to Table 10.1.
The net areas specified in the Guide exclude space required to accommodate
circulation among the listed spaces. While the amount of circulation space required
varies among judiciary-related offices and with each facility's specific design, 19% to
21% of the net programmed space can be added to determine the total usable area of
the judiciary-related offices (i.e., the estimated total usable area of the judiciary-related
office is equal to the sum of all the net programmed spaces plus 19% to 21%
depending upon the department). See the criteria for specific judiciary-related
departments for the percentage to be added. Add 21% for circulation within a
department if specific criteria are not provided.
Criteria in the Guide for personnel in
judiciary-related offices will be allocated
according to the benchmark occupational
groups described in the judiciary's Human
Resources Manual, the Categorization of
Defender Organization Classification
(DOCS) Positions, or equivalent. These
documents are available from the AOUSC.
